Working with the same visuals director over and over again, Animal Collective get to play around with their strong suits and are allowed to experiment. Their suits in "Today's Supernatural" are clown suits, and a Chinese dragon.
The Danny Perez-helmed full-length-movie-thing "ODDSAC" was a good example of how the members of the New York band sort of ooze and bolt in and out of their own tracks, musically and visually. There was a lot of similar electricity and tech-y weirdness that shows up in this track -- culled from AC's forthcoming full-length "Centipede Hz" -- and it works. The desert pastels and decadent styling enhance this upbeat ode, which is about as close to "pop music" as Animal Collective really gets.
