Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, Raleigh Moncrief
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
[HALLUCINOGENIC ROCK] Of Animal Collective’s many talented parts, Avey Tare might be the strangest and most gifted. Which is saying something, given the storied Baltimore group’s longstanding quest to redefine experimental indie-rock. His newest outfit, Slasher Flicks, is an all-star ensemble, made up of former Dirty Projector Angel Deradoorian and Ponytail drummer Jeremy Hyman. The trio already has a single of the year candidate to its name in “Little Fang,” a memorable mix of acid jazz and spooky freak-rock. The band’s one and only record, Enter the Slasher House, offers a wonderfully mysterious, animated sound—a dark comic book come to life.
