Show Review

One year removed from the universal freak-out that accompanied the release of Merriweather Post Pavilion, Animal Collective is still...ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE (as they should be). The band just stepped in as guest editors for the most recent copy of FADER, played the role of DJs at a Friday party at the American Museum of Natural History, and have slowly surfaced information regarding a host of solo project activities (from current and former members, alike). To those current events, add the mesmerizing new video for "Brother Sport".

A brilliant, multi-media extravaganza, the band's latest video is a dazzling mix of live action, playful animation, and spastic lighting that is both thrilling and completely absorbing. We're fairly fascinated by it, and I suppose we could provide the blow by blow on what's going on. Except, that's not much fun. Instead, we suggest you blow it up big, and surrender over to six minutes of good natured, psychedelic beauty. Omelets anyone?
