Animal Collective’s David Portner, a.k.a. Avey Tare, has always been fascinated by the idea of an alien band. If you’ve ever experienced the glitchy beatscapes, oddly stretched-out melodies and synthesized digital mayhem of the group’s epic live shows, then you have a taste for what he’s talking about. Get ready, as the avant-pop MVPs will bring their spacey, jammy anthems to L.A. to play its 15-year-old freak-folk record, Sung Tongs.
