Avey Tare Debuts New Tunes On Tour

Avey Tare’s out there touring his solo record Down There; I recently caught his stop at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory with Black Dice’s Eric Copeland opening and both of them backed up by a Yoda-masked skeleton wearing a sweet scarf. Memorable! Tare’s taking the opportunity to, in typical Animal Collective fashion, work out new material. Watch fan vid of “Song For Jerome,” “Sometimes,” “In Photographs,” and “Slow Worlds” below. In back you’ll see emaciated Yoda holding it down in back, though his scarf is largely absent.

“Song For Jerome” / “Lucky 1″


“In Photographs”

“Slow Worlds”

All via 130BPM. Animal Collective are presently at work on a new record; stay tuned for their next move.
