Our favorite indie freak-folk band Animal Collective just released a new video for their song “In the Flowers.” Not surprisingly, the video is a bit on the weird side. (This could possibly be the understatement of the century.) The video itself is a trippy montage of sorts, complete with vintage footage that looks as if it was filmed by Abraham Zapruder himself.

Since the “In the Flowers” is such a good song though, it really doesn’t matter what the video looks like. The video could have been in claymation for all I care.

Passion Pit's Music Video for "The Reeling" [HD]

Passion PitJust stumbled across the music video for Passion Pit’s hit song “The Reeling.” The effects in this video, not to mention the song itself, are completely dope. I love the vintage and gritty feel that the beginning of the video gives off. This is one of the most creative videos that I’ve seen in a while and it definitely gets my vote as one of the coolest music videos of 2009. I’m sure that this will be in everyone’s top 10 list come December.

In case you forgot, Passion Pit’s debut album Manners dropped last week among critical acclaim. You should pick up the album, if you haven’t already. They will also be playing at Bonnaroo on June 11th in Manchester, Tennessee.
