Down There is the debut solo album by Animal Collective member Avey Tare (David Portner), released worldwide on October 25, 2010 on Paw Tracks. Lucky 1" was officially released for download as the first single on October 5, 2010.
Animal Collective's Dave Portner told us in a recent interview that Down There, his first solo album as Avey Tare, grew out of a negative emotional atmosphere: " primarily comes from being bummed out- which, I felt like in the past two years, I've had a darker time". And indeed, in terms of both general mood and sound, Down There is among the darkest pieces of music to emerge from a member of Animal Collective

Down There, the first solo album from Animal Collective's Avey Tare (except for a collaborative album with his wife, múm's Kría Brekkan), is naturally going to remind listeners of a quieter, more plaintive Animal Collective LP. That's not to say that Tare (aka Dave Portner), the group's primary writer, is a folkie singer/songwriter at heart, content to strum away at his guitar and sing about his feelings. Down There is virtually as experimental as Animal Collective. The beats are adventurous, sometimes so aqueous and damp that you can feel the splash, other times pin-point.
Avey Tare – Down There. Label: Paw Tracks – PAW35. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. dark, psychedelic, moody; I dont get why this lp doesnt seem to have a further fanbase, especially from animal collective fans. down there" is a very personal album for me. and from time to time, I still discover new layers in Aveys swamp soundscape; vinyl pressing is very good btw and mastering wise much better than the clipping cd version.

This is an album of great depth, of serious power, one that conveys so much emotion and yet contains so many inventive and compelling musical moments. This isn’t Tare working off of Merriweather Post Pavilion’s success or trying to emulate it. He’s drawing from past strengths (Water Curses and Feels particularly, even Strawberry Jam) and producing something new, something unique. Watch: Kings of Leon bring Radioactive to Letterman.
