Sleep Cycle is the debut solo album by Animal Collective member Deakin (Josh Dibb), released on Bandcamp on April 6, 2016. The album was subsequently released on My Animal Home on April 8, 2016. Dibb originally started raising funds for Sleep Cycle through a Kickstarter campaign in 2009

After over 6 (!) years tis finally here! the lord deakin awaits! but the question remain. HERE IS HE GOIN. back to the the brown lodge with ye!) Posted on April 5th, 2016 at 4:33 pm. CANT Said, Cool. If you want a physical format folks, there’s a cassette version.

Today, he's revealed that the album, Sleep Cycle, will be digitally released on Friday, April 8, on all major streaming and digital retailers. Find the "Just Am" video, album artwork, and tracklist below. In 2012, after the album and promised Kickstarter rewards had yet to materialize, Dibb gave an interview with Pitchfork in which he said all of the money had gone to charity. He said he was still working on the album, which was delayed by "fatal perfectionism. A press release notes: Due to personal and professional issues the project has been delayed for years.

REPORTED BY: getmetal. Animal Collective's Josh Dibb, aka Deakin, has finished his Kickstarter-funded LP, which has been controversially delayed for years, as the Animal Collective Reddit points out. In an update sent to the record's backers, he said it will be sent for manufacture imminently and should ship later this month or early February.

Ten weeks ago I commented on his Instagram page that we need a vinyl release of Sleep Cycle. He replied 'working on it' crossed! :-)
I messaged Deakin online on a private music site over a year ago. He did acknowledge that it was, indeed, him, but failed to reply when I asked him about a vinyl release of this album. I don't think he will do it. I think the only chance of that occurring would be for the album's 10th anniversary or something like that.The Animal Collective band politics regarding Deakin's solo career are a bit confusing, to say the least. Are they refusing to contribute funds towards a proper release on Domino Records, or is Deakin purposely avoiding the limelight out of an inherent bashfulness? Why the Kickstarter campaign, when he could have just asked for money from his fellow bandmates? They have helped other artists out before.The fact he is offering this album again on cassette tape is a good sign, though, and I feel like an idiot for only finding out about it now. Otherwise, I would have already bought a copy. The last copy on here of the 2018 repress sold May 8th. I hope there are still copies out there. I don't like the mastering on the digital release. Too much clipping.
All asking about the new tapes, i don't have an exact number but when he gave me mine the box looked like it had around 250 in it, but i could very well be wrong
I think the cassettes he’s selling on his tour right now are different from the original 250, there’s a thing beneath the track listing that says “Originally duplicated in an edition of 250 for Kickstarter backers”.Would these be from this year? Does anyone know if he’s been selling cassettes any other time since the original release?
Ten dollars, definitely not the price of what it's been going for here
curious, how much was he charging for the cassette at his show?
I’ll message you a few pictures of what mine says.
Really? Interesting, where on yours does it say that?Mine most definitely have this message though, I can post a picture if you want but it seems to be different. What do the numbered ones have beneath the track listing?
jpmcruiser I think the cassettes he’s selling on his tour right now are different from the original 250, there’s a thing beneath the track listing that says “Originally duplicated in an edition of 250 for Kickstarter backers”.Would these be from this year? Does anyone know if he’s been selling cassettes any other time since the original release? I don’t think what he’s selling now is different from the original release. My copy doesn’t mention “originally duplicated in edition of 250”, mine is 93/250. It’s possible that he sold off the remaining cassettes and them possibly made another batch? Idk, but mine appears to be an original and it was purchased at the GGD record release show in New York.
Deakin is selling copies on his current east coast tour. Get one there. Don't pay $899 for a cassette.
Do you happen to know how many he had when you saw him? I’m thinking of hitting people up to see if they can grab me a tape but idk if he has them on this new tour he’s going on in sept.
i could buy a car or i could buy this cassette
Error parents
I just got totally cucked out of a copy feels bad man
Is Anyone interested in selling this? I would be interested.
I'm craving a proper vinyl release of this. Let's make it happen!
i want this on vinyl. i'll pay lots of money.
Let's see Paw Tracks get this vinyl out !! To be expected from a member of AC I guess.Needs a vinyl press ;)
Someone contact Fat Cat Records and see if they're already pressing this or not cus need
Deakin > Panda Bear > Animal Collective. Still love them all though.
We could really do with a vinyl release. . .
v i n y l r e l e a s e w h e n ! ! !
A big thank you for this awesome record, please let it be released as a vinyl aswell <3
