“Viewer discretion is advised – the video has been identified to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.”
I’ll say! That’s the exact warning that appears before Animal Collective’s latest video and not only is it true, it may be a bit of an understatement; it can also potentially trigger acid flashbacks for people with a psychedelic past. If you think I’m joking, just wait – you’ll soon realize that someone was able to capture an audio and visual hallucination and upload it to YouTube.
But it’s not just what you see and hear that’s reminiscent of flashback. Every time I listen to “FloriDada”, I start to giggle for no other reason than because the song sounds funny. I’m sure there’s probably a lyric that warrants a laugh, but for me, it’s the chorus. As soon as they Florida, I’m laughing. Is it just me?
Animal Collective’s tenth release Painting With is set to be released on February 19 via Domino.
