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.

The video is intended to be viewed in complete darkness from maximum effect. That is what the video description warns you. So maybe you have to wait to watch this in your closet later today, because we did the full total darkness thing, and we have both a headache and sense of happiness. Animal Collective's Applesauce was directed by Gaspar Noé and features model Lindsey Wixson with elements from Paul Sharits' 1968 short film N:O:T:H:I:N:G thrown in there. Enjoy after the jump...
