Animal Collective: “Summertime Clothes”

What do melting ice sculptures, boogaloo sheet monsters, and deformed dancers half-encased in plastic orbs have in common? They’re all featured in the latest video from bizarro experimental-pop wizards Animal Collective. Directed by Danny Perez, friend of the band and director of the video for “Who Could Win a Rabbit” from 2004’s indelible Sung Tongs, this most recent collaboration may be a hint of things to come in their upcoming “visual album” project. Rumor (ie: Collected Animals) has it that this might actually come out by the end of the summer… you can start losing your shit now.
