Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “So Good At Being In Trouble” Video

Today, the twitchy indie trio Unknown Mortal Orchestra release sophomore album II, and they’ve also chosen this morning to drop their video for the surprisingly graceful and funky single “So Good At Being In Trouble.” The director, frequent Animal Collective collaborator Danny Perez, mostly leaves behind his usual brain-melt visuals to tell a relatively straightforward… More »

Animal Collective – “Today’s Supernatural” Video

Here’s the eyebleed of a visual for AnCo’s “Today’s Supernatural,” a video that includes Avey Tare in a frightening clown getup, one of those dragon dance costumes riding round in a go-kart before getting beaten up by a pair of disembodied arms with clubs, and so forth. Business as usual for AnCo. Frequent collaborator Danny… More »

Hot Chip – “Look At Where We Are” Video

We heard the Major Lazer remix yesterday, and now Hot Chip’s elegant synthpop elegy “Look At Where We Are” has a music video from Animal Collective visual collaborator Danny Perez. In the ambiguous, hallucinatory clip, a mad scientist experiments on a supermodel’s soul, or something. It’s not exactly the most linear narrative you’ll ever see. More »

Panda Bear – “You Can Count On Me” Video

Longtime Animal Collective visual-art compatriot Danny Perez has set a series of his mushroom-clouded, swirling video trip-outs to Panda Bear’s Tomboy standout “You Can Count On Me.” It is an official video, and despite my general distaste for iTunes-Visualizer-styled music videos, Perez gets a pass because he sort of runs shit in that world. It’… More »

Animal Collective & Danny Perez’s Transverse Temporal Gyrus @ Guggenheim Museum, NYC 3/4/10

No, there was no live musical performance. Yes, the dudes (with Deakin but no Panda) were there in bunny costumes that must’ve earned a 1,001 Donnie Darko reference points. Lives presumably were changed (in direct proportion with amount of psychedelics ingested), minds presumably were not: Animal Collective convinced 1,500 folks (not counting the early show)… More »

Animal Collective & Danny Perez Bring Transverse Temporal Gyrus To The Guggenheim Museum

A brief chat we had with these dudes up at ATP suggested spawning a live-performance piece from Animal Collective’s mind-melting “visual album” Oddsac would be a tall order.
