Animal Collective - “In the Flowers” (video)

[13 November 2009]

Watch the new video for Animal Collective’s “In the Flowers”, the stunning, sublime opener to Merriweather Post Pavilion. The incongruent visual montages, going from a lo-fi retrospective (with one cool, hard-ass lookin’ dude), to seas of swirling flowers, to explosions of light, color, and ballet, may be a bit overwhelming at times. Nevertheless, it seems like Animal Collective hemorrhages these beautiful overtures at will.
