Vid Break! Animal Collective is "Bluish"
Animal Collective have been around for most of the 2000's, but it wasn't until Merriweather Post Pavilion in 2009 that they broke the independent mold and brought about their most accessible album to date. That doesn't necessarily mean that they dropped their experimental tendencies for this one album, especially considering the recent release of the visual nightmare ODDSAC. They've still got it in them to produce intriguing, wonderful sounds amidst a Beach Boys-esque atmosphere. Such is the case with "Bluish," a song that sounds like the title itself and an accompanying video even James Cameron has to be awed with. It's one of the more relaxed songs on the album, yet the video edits intensify with the beats and the dreamy visuals with what appears to be floating belly dancers and jellyfish transport you into a land of wonder. Let this video take you places you didn't think you'd go.
