New album Cows on Hourglass Pond released 22nd March
29th January 2019
Avey Tare, a.k.a Dave Portner of Animal Collective, has announced the new album Cows On Hourglass Pond, for release on March 22, 2019.
Cows On Hourglass Pond 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.
The first song to be released from the forthcoming album is “Saturdays (Again)”. A video, directed by Abby Portner, can be found below. Says Abby Portner, on the video:
"For the Saturdays (Again) video I wanted to try and create what it would look like inside Avey Tare's new record cover, 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."
Cows On Hourglass Pond follows the 2017 release of Avey Tare’s Eucalyptus, and 2018’s audiovisual album Tangerine Reef, a collaboration between Animal Collective and avant-garde coral macro-videographers Coral Morphologic.
Cows on Hourglass Pond is available to pre-order now from the Animal Collective store on CD and Deluxe LP + 10”. The latter format consists of a single LP pressing of the album available on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl and a limited edition 10” featuring two bonus songs “Tipped in Hugs” b/w “Dog Says Goodbye.”
