Animal Collective's 'Sprit They've Gone...' was released as part of a double CD on FatCat in October 2003. In May 2004, FatCat released 'Sung Tongs'.In April 2007 he released a record with is wife Kria Brekkan titled 'Pullhair Rubeye'. Also in 2007, with Animal Collective he released the 'People' EP and, with hisdeal with FatCat ended, he and Animal Collective signed to Domino.
In 2009 with the band he released 'Merriweather Post Pavillion', their ninth studio album, which has topped many end-of-year lists in influential music publications and broadsheets. In December '09 they also released the 'Fall Be Kind' EP on Domino. In 2010 he released his solo record 'Down There' on Paw Tracks.
