of Animal Collective
fame has released the first single off his solo debut Down There
(his other work outside Animal Collective was a collaboration with his wife, Kria Brekken, entitled Pullhair Rubeye
) for the low, low price of free. The track, "Lucky 1," belies its cheesy title and is actually an odd-sounding, subdued number driven by an ear-grabbing croaky synth line.
Tare's album, which he describes as swamp-themed, is set to drop on October 26th on Animal Collective's Paw Tracks label. "Lucky 1" will be released for purchase today, if you're feeling like supporting the artist instead of grabbing it for free.
Beyond the release of his album, Tare's plans for his solo work and for his involvement in Animal Collective are obscure. -peter menniti
