Remember Avey Tare’s 2017 album Eucalyptus?

Well FORGET THAT SHIT. There’s a NEW one coming out.

Yes, Dave Portner (of Animal Collective? Remember them?), has just announced a new album, Cows On Hourglass Pond, for release on March 22 via Domino. And TOTALLY UNLIKE his last album, this one was “recorded between January - March 2018 by Dave Portner at Laughing Gas in Asheville, NC on a Tascam 48 half-inch reel-to-reel tape machine. The album was mixed by Adam McDaniel and Dave Portner at Drop of Sun in Asheville, NC.”

Wow, impressive string of words, right?

The first song to be unveiled from the album is called “Saturdays (Again).” The accompanying video — directed by Abby Portner — can be viewed down below. “I wanted to try and create what it would look like inside Avey Tare’s new record cover,” Abby Portber says, “[as] if you were to step inside and hang out with Dave and the cows in a surreal, colorful landscape. Since I did parts of the record art and paintings in the press photos, I wanted it to all be included inside this video.”

Wow, impressive string of words, right?

Well, guess what? There’s also an impressive string of spring tour dates coming our way! Check those out down below too.

Oh but wait! First, pre-order the album physically here and digitally right over here!

Wow, impressive string of pre-order links, right?

Okay, that’s all for now. You might wanna hurry up and get ON all this new shit, though, before someone from Animal Collective announces something EVEN NEWER on us and renders all this CURRENT shit totally obsolete!
