Let’s hear it for literalism! “Little Fang” is the name of the first single from Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, the Animal Collective co-leader’s new band with Dirty Projectors’ Angel Deradoorian and Ponytail’s Jeremy Hyman. And so it makes perfect sense that the song’s video would concern the adventures of a vampire cat. Longtime Animal Collective collaborator Abby Portner directed the video, which references a few old horror movies and generally works as a spooky head-trip. But the Jim Henson Creature Shop created the puppet who plays the title character, and that puppet is cute as fuck. Watch the video below.
Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks’ debut album Enter The Slasher House is out 4/8 on Domino.
