Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks - "Little Fang"

New MusicjeremyComment

Avey Tare's new oddly-named project releases its first song, "Little Fang." This is much more straightforward than most of what we've come to expect from Tare, despite the slightly off-kilter vocal affect. A throbbing bass and summery guitar lead the way, with the drum beat giving the song a fresh pep. I guess we will have to wait longer to find out if this project is just a horror-pop gimmick--the name is probably still giving me too many hangups--but this song seems pretty sound.
