Avey Tare announces new two-sided EP, 'Conference of Birds / Birds in Disguise'

Avey Tare, a.k.a Dave Portner of Animal Collective, shares the first side of a new 12” EP, Conference of Birds / Birds in Disguise.

Framed as two distinct sides, side A’s Conference of Birds and side B’s Birds in Disguise, the new EP features studio recordings of live fan favorites that were originally debuted during tours supporting his solo releases, 2017’s Eucalyptus and this year’s Cows on Hourglass Pond, which Consequence of Sound calls among Avey Tare’s strongest work of the ’10s, whether alone or with Animal Collective.

Watch the video directed by Natalia Stuyk for side A’s Conference of Birds, featuring the tracks “Midnight Special," "Red Light Water Show," and "Disc One” below.


Speaking on Conference of Birds / Birds in Disguise, Portner said: “Early mornings at the bar. Deep conversations with a stranger. A Disney Night parade gone wrong. The White Album is 2 CDs.” 

Side A's Conference of Birds is now available digitally. The full EP will be released on December 5, while the 12" vinyl is available to pre-order now via Domino Mart.

Next week, Avey Tare will play two nights at NYC’s Public Records on December 5 and December 6. Tickets are available at aveytare.com.
