Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks 'Enter the Slasher House' Album Review - Rolling Stone
Home Music Album Reviews

Enter the Slasher House

Harmony-happy Panda Bear has always been Animal Collective's solo star, but now it's yelpy co-founder Avey Tare's time to shine. Slasher Flicks, his new side project with ex-Dirty Projector Angel Deradoorian and ex-Ponytail drummer Jeremy Hyman, has nothing to do with horror films and much to do with warped psychedelic rock. The layered, groove-centric arrangements on their debut LP can be confusingly complex at times, but there's always accessible, sun-soaked pop within. These 11 songs feel like a natural extension of Animal Collective's sound and a welcome addition to the band's ever-evolving extracurricular catalog.
