New Animal Collective Video : My Girls

In a very smart move on their part, Animal Collective and the powers that be at Domino have decided that "My Girls" should be the first song from Merriweather Post Pavilion to warrant making a video. It makes sense. The son is arguably the best one on the album, and my personal favorite. I have stepped away from the album for a couple of weeks, for fear of playing it out so early on in the year, but listening to and watching video for the song felt as good as it did the first time I heard it. The video takes the viewer through some colorful landscapes, as one may expect from the band, and the animation is good, if not simplistic. A pleasure to the eyes and ears, yet not envelope-pushing, the Windows screensaver/Star Wars-esque light-speed graphic does add a tinge of antiquity to a fresh song. Check out the video for yourselves over at

While we're on the subject of AC, the band has plotted a world tour, and Austin ended up on the roster. You will, however, have to wait until Friday, June 5 to catch the band at Stubb's, but a little wait never hurt anyone, did it?
