You can always count on the boys from Animal Collective to give you a trippy video; really, it only matches their musical stylings. Arguably the best track on Merriweather Post Pavilion, “My Girls” conjures the Beach Boys sense of melody and the technical keyboard prowess we have come to expect from AC. It’s too fitting the video looks like it was shot from the inside of a lava lamp.
If you haven’t yet, you need to listen to this album.
I’ve been covering a lot of Justin Vernon lately, but it’s only because he is THAT good. No, he is not the best singer or guitar player, but he conveys torrents of emotion with each note he croons in his unmistakable falsetto. Take this impromptu live performance on what looks like someones back porch: shown from the view of the artist, it was an incredible way to capture this performance; the emotional look on the faces of the fans in attendance is apparent. Take a look.
Thanks to my buddy Joey Bags for sending me the link.
