Avery Tare of Animal Collective is getting ready to unleash his new side project, featuring ex-Dirty Projector Angel Deradoorian and ex-Ponytail member Jeremy Hyman. Slasher Flicks just released their debut single, “Little Fang,” and it is quite possibly the best anyone could expect from this indie-supergroup. The idiosyncrasies of Dirty Projectors and Animal Collective is certainly still there, but just in a slightly different container. Anchored by a strong instrumental, Tare’s vocals sink in fully, and his delivery, teamed with the song’s infectious melody, result in a fully developed musical production. “You’re something special, you are the little fang,” sings Tare during the toe-tapping chorus, while the production swirls around him. Considering the hosts of the event, there is certainly plenty to lose yourself in along the way.
