Avey Tare, of Animal Collective and really cool masks, has a new band called Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks. You might imagine the music of such a trio (Angel Deradoorian and Jeremy Hyman, formerly of the Dirty Projectors and Ponytail, respectively, also feature) to be in line with press photos like this. But it's not scary at all! It's actually an empowering funk-disco track, something little cartoon monsters might vogue to in the mirror before heading to a party in the woods. But Tare's still-endearing adolescent warble makes the affirmations stick: "You're something special... if there are doubts then we will groove it out."
