Crying snake eyes. Skeleton Wallpaper. Crocodiles juxtaposed to mandalas. There’s a sort of screen-saverish/tour backdrop quality to Avey Tare’s video for his first single off as-yet-unreleased album Down There, which was directed by his sister Abby Portner. Yet, any excuse to listen closer to the song with its Dan Deacon-esque programmed tweaks and lachrymose lyrics, is probably a good thing.  If this is any indicator, Avey Tare may have finally found a project that can compete with the solo work of his Animal Collective comrade Panda Bear.
