Rachel may be forced to listen to Celtic songstresses all day, but, thankfully, I have the freedom to choose the music I listen to at work. And, while I often pick something melodic or jazzy, I also listen to large helpings of Animal Collective, one of my favorite electronic/ experimental bands around.
Today, the band released a music video for “Bluish,” a choice cut from their last album, Merriweather Post Pavilion. The song is a beautiful tribute to infatuation and love which is matched in the music video with scenes of a belly dancer, a scorpion, and other blue-tinted psychedelic images.
If you follow Animal Collective, you’ve come to expect music videos like this one. If you are not familiar with the band, this is a fairly approachable introduction.
