New Animal Collective Live Video – “Cuckoo”

All that stays serene about this stunning newbie from Animal Collective is the piano melody; the rest, as you’d expect, is prone to sonic freak outs and the Geologist’s manipulative madness. P4K dug up this clip, recorded for TVP Kultura, a Polish arts and culture network, and it’s a must-watch for AC fans.

Maybe “Cuckoo” will turn up on Animal Collective’s forthcoming Domino-released LP, maybe it won’t (we have no idea, actually) — but it oughta get you primed for the band’s tour, which kicks off tonight in Ohio. Dates after the jump.
