Also out now is the new video for a track from last year's Merriweather Post Pavilion by Animal Collective for the track Bluish. It's blue! It features sparkles and stars and bellydance bras and girls who disappear in bubbles of smoke.

I'm getting lost in your curls
I'm getting crushed out on the things that only I should see

The boys of the band play Casper under lit sheets whilst swirling ribbons and scarves mesmerise in reverse. The bellydancer is ninja, the lights are black and everyone's a star.

The credits for the video are: (from YouTube)

I have recommended from this album before. I haven't played it yet this year. Revisiting now, it's like relaxing with an old friend.
