Enter The Slasher House: Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks - "Little Fang" (Domino Records)

"A group of three hippies on a road trip through the backwaters of 2013's rural music scene fall prey to a murderous cannibalistic band making, including a leather-masked, guitar-wielding Avey Tare, his knife-wielding keyboard player Angel Deradoorian, and their cannibal chief drummer and decaying grandfather Jeremy Hyman," Dave Portner vaguely attempted to describe his then newly-formed project, Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks upon their April 2013 formation. An Indie Rock super-group of sorts or even a self-described "Jazz power trio," Slasher Flicks features former members of Dirty Projectors and Ponytail, along with Avey Tare who's seemingly on a brief hiatus from his main band, Animal Collective. Domino Records will release the band's debut album, Enter The Slasher House on April 7-8th and paired with the Monday morning album announcement, came Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks' first pre-release sonic-appetizer, "Little Fang." "While their sound is monstrous and there are nightmarish moments peppering the lyrics and melodies, "Little Fang"'s clean guitars, soft everything and special smoke called "PYT" blown into the tape machine shows off spirits conjured from sweeter worlds," notes a Domino web-press release. Enter The Slasher House is currently available for pre-order on either standard CD, double heavy-weight LP, or various digital formats; participating eager fans will also become eligible to purchase special ticket and album bundles. Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks will be touring across the United States between April and May along with Jeremy Hyman's former Ponytail bandmate, Dustin Wong, whom I recently interviewed for this very site.
