Avey Tare did an interesting interview with Pitchfork that came out the other day. He talked about the new album Down There, what the future beholds for Animal Collective, his creative process, and some personal things in his life.
He's really pushing to describe Down There as a "hell swamp" or a real crocodile/alligator feel to it. Pitchfork says the album is very electronic, even describing some songs as "very dark dubstep". We'll be able to form our ideas October 26; it's being released on Animal Collective's own Paw Tracks label.
