In an art and performance space in the still-industrial section of Williamsburg, half of Animal Collective joined by Kria Brekkan performed an as-yet-unnamed piece before an intimate crowd. The official announcement of this gig was within the last week, and the event was a celebration of the new CD release by Rings, a band who features Avey’s sister and whose album was recorded with Kria Brekkan.

Deakin posted about this piece on the Collected Animals forum this morning. The project is a 30 minute piece in four parts featuring Deakin on sampler and guitar, Avey on effects, vocals, and guitar and Kria on accordian and effects. The flac available for download has not been tracked, it remains one piece.

The Rings set was also recorded and will be posted pending artist approval (update: band approved — coming soon)

nyctaper recordings of Animal Collective are still available for download (here) and (here), as well as the recording of Kria Brekkan (here).

This recording is now available to download in FLAC and MP3 at Archive.org [HERE].
