In 2007, Northern Valentine joined forces with guitarist P.D. Wilder (Hotel, Hotel) for their first tour. They had the chance to collaborate quite a bit, often joining each other on stage and blending their songs together.

This recording features two solo performances by Robert of Northern Valentine, and two solo performances by P.D. Wilder - with two improvised collaborations in the middle, recorded live in Brooklyn on January 21st, 2007. The album was originally released as a limited edition compact disc on Gears of Sand Recordings in 2008, and digitally re-released in 2023.

Ned Raggett (AllMusic) describes the sound of Animals of the Dead as "...suggesting early Aphex Twin at his most serene but still tuneful..." "Untitled #1 attractively meshes what almost sounds like a rhythmic birdcall with softly cascading feedback sprawl, delicate rather than crushing. Untitled #2 is minimal to the extreme, a nearly subharmonic blend of the quietest of pulses and slippery, shadowy tones and clipped crackle that slowly rise in volume as the track continues."

Jen Stratosphere Fanzine (DOA) calls it "...a foggy harbor in outer space...a vibrating sphere of sounds that move in and out of volume...".

"Northern Valentine’s music delivers a sense of floating in space or a communion with nature where the listener is enveloped in clouds of billowing sonics. The listener’s imagination can run wild creating images to accompany this ambient soundtrack...In sum, an awesomely hypnotic listening experience."...Jeff Penczak (Foxy Digitalis) ... more
