Music Video: Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks "Little Fang"

Music // Friday, March 14, 2014
It was only a matter of time when someone from a band called Animal Collective would work with Jim Henson's Creature Shop on some sort of project. Avey Tare (born David Portner), who was in Animal Collective and now fronts his own band, Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks (with an LP "Enter The Slasher House" out April 7/8th on Domino), has a new single and video out for the track "Little Fang." The song was inspired by Avey's cat, the video is directed by Avey's sister, Abby Portner, and the puppets are from Henson. Go watch.
