Why sing when you can artfully bleat, why walk on the bank when you can swim in the swamp, and why compose pop when you can pen a dirge for the vapors? Avey Tare—man, crocodile, Animal Collective tribesman—may not consciously pose such questions, but his music certainly answers them. “Lucky 1” is the lantern on a River Styx-bound boat, swinging from post-industrial to oily experimental and back again. Find it on Down There, Tare’s debut solo record (and misty ode to the underworld), out today via Paw Tracks.
