Avey Tare is Dave Portner of Animal Collective and Kria Brekkan is Kristin Anna Valtysdottir formerly of the band múm.  The two met a few years back and started playing music together in the summer of 2005.  Recently they married and now live together in New York City .


Avey Tare and Kria Brekkan recorded their debut collaboration “Pullhair Rubeye” with guitars and piano on an eight track in their practice space in Brooklyn . Then they traveled to upstate New York where the record was mixed down onto a two track borrowed from a friend who bought it at a garage sale for a dollar.   Just as the two were completing the mix, the two track broke down and Avey and Kria didn’t hear the mixes until two months later when they obtained another two track.  After this short vacation, they were surprised by the sounds they had made.


Regardless of HOW they made their sounds, Avey Tare and Kria Brekkan’s “Pullhair Rubeye” is a motley collection of fun and somber songs. Some of the tracks are instrumental, textured, and trancelike. They sound like they could come from another world. Other songs are lyrically based, calmer, more introspective.  These sound like direct transmissions from within.
