Not only is Panda Bear releasing a new album and touring this year, his Animal Collective bandmate Avey Tare is too. It's called Cows on Hourglass Pond and it comes out March 22 via Domino. Avey Tare recorded it himself on a Tascam 48 half-inch reel-to-reel tape machine, and he mixed it with help from Adam McDaniel. The first single is "Saturdays (Again)," which is a very trippy dose of psychedelic pop with some nice acoustic guitar strums that might bring you back to AnCo's earlier work. Listen and watch the equally trippy video below. The video was directed by Avey Tare's sister Abby Portner, who says:

For the "Saturdays (Again)" video I wanted to try and create what it would look like inside Avey Tare's new record cover, if you were to step inside and hang out with Dave and the cows in a surreal, colorful landscape. Since I did parts of the record art and paintings in the press photos, I wanted it to all be included inside this video.

Avey Tare is also touring, beginning at Big Ears Festival (which just added an ECM Records 50th anniversary showcase) and then hitting Baltimore, Philly, Brooklyn, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, LA, Austin, and more.

The Brooklyn show happens April 1 at Market Hotel. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/1) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
