RIYL: Animal Collective, Panda Bear, Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks

Label: Domino


There isn’t much yet about what this album will be like, but Avey Tare has his new record “Eucalyptus” up for pre-order over at the animal collective website. I’ve done a some research on what’s been going down with Mr. Portner, and from what I can tell, this album is poised to be quite chilled out, compared to some of animal collective’s latest bits, however, a song has yet to be released from the track list, so it’s really up in the air. There are some reports that it will be just as ‘out there’ as his slasher flick material. Avey first revealed the album cover by sending a lucky fan an image in the form of a jigsaw puzzle. If you are into that you can go to aveytare.com and check a few puzzles for yourself. Anyways, I’ll be updating as music comes along in hopes of getting a better idea of what is to come from this album. Hidden in the website is a audio clip that is posted below. It doesn’t seem that this is going to be on the record, but who knows. NOTE: Eucalyptus is “recommended listening for dawn or dusk”.

From Domino: Eucalyptus is the new studio album written and produced by Animal Collective’s Avey Tare. Conceived on Hawaiian mornings, written on a sunlit bedroom afternoon in Los Angeles, practiced in the dark early hours of the California twilight, recommended listening for dawn or dusk.  Recorded by Animal Collective’s Deakin (Josh Dibb), featuring chamber orchestration arranged by Eyvind Kang, musicians Angel Deradoorian and Jessika Kenney, Eucalyptus is an immersive album length electroacoustic movement through leaves, rocks and dust.
