From Los Angeles comes the band, Avey Tare and their Psychedelic Rock track (& video), “Strange Colores”. Their new album, “Enter the Slasher House”. Released on April 8 (April 7 in the rest of the world).
Slasher Flicks by name alone is not what it appears to be. Scrambled horror film soundtracks? Not even remotely. A bunch of East Coasters making their quintessential LA album? No, more like escape from LA, say guitar-wielding Avey Tare (of Animal Collective), keyboard player and singer Angel Deradoorian (of Dirty Projectors, Deradoorian), and drummer Jeremy Hyman (of Ponytail, Dan Deacon).
You can Check out the visual stream of the entire album for a limited time from youtube here.
The band is heading out on a North American tour including a stop at the recently announced Pitchfork Music Festival in July. Dustin Wong will support all non-festival dates.
