The work of Avey Tare (David Portner) is an extraordinary beast. Marrying the fluorescent with the feverish, Portner’s influential main outfit Animal Collective became a landmark band of the past fifteen years. Even under his own moniker, Portner creates music with a brazen spirit, snatching dark elements and deft harmonics like a child rummaging a toy box. 2017 finds Portner reinventing himself with new album ‘Eucalyptus’: his most personal record yet.
