Last month we got the first taste of Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks’ upcoming debut album Enter the Slasher House with the lead single ‘Little Fang’. The trio have complimented the track with a brilliant video directed by long time Animal Collective collaborator Abby Portner. The video features Little Fang as a part cat, part werewolf puppet created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and wrangled by Michael Wick (Nightmare Before Christmas), and puppet mastered by Tim Lagasse (Crash and Bernstein & Sesame Street). Speaking about the video, Abby explained she “really wanted to showcase the craft of the things that were made like the puppet and physical set pieces”. She added, “I also wanted to reference horror movies, like the car scene in Psycho and the lake in Malibu that the little girl climbs out of in the original Frankenstein. Dave [Portner] and I were inspired by Jim Henson, who had a funny dark side, so we tried to make a video that also had light hearted dark side”.
Watch the video below and watch out for the release of Enter the Slasher House on April 7th in the UK/Europe and April 8th in North America via Domino Records.
