Avey Tare’s to Release First Full-Length October 26th

Down There is a world of nine new songs from Animal Collective’s, Avey Tare. The album is set for release on October 26, 2010 on the Paw Tracks label. Avey’s first official solo full length carries you through a murky world of sound an alien death world of soul grooves that is both honest and otherworldly. Wait for sundown and turn it up loud. Take a ride on this haunted boat and let yourself be guided through deep sloshy rhythms, waterlogged bass, and moonlit breaks in the canopy that reveal a crisp crystalline pop buzz.

Dave Portner AKA Avey Tare was born in Baltimore County Maryland on April 24th in the year of 1979.  He moved to New York City in 1997 where he resides to this day (in south Brooklyn).  Though he spends most of his time writing songs and producing sounds (usually in the group Animal Collective) he also is an intense record collector, film fanatic, book head, friend, and traveler.   It’s from these things primarily that Mr. Portner gets his inspiration, still striving to blend sounds and discover musical territory that seems unfamiliar.  His favorite animals are the otter and crocodile. The latter has played a big role in his newest record. So MotorMouthMedia tells us…
