Animal Collective :: "My Girls" (Unofficial Alt. Video)

At the beginning of the year, Animal Collective was everywhere. Looking back, we can say without a doubt the hype for Merriweather Post Pavillion was definitely well deserved. Their ninth full-length album is utterly fantastic. The first single, "My Girls" produced an awesome video that seemed to fit the song perfectly, that is, until we saw this creative "unofficial" video Rob Chestutt made.

The North American portion of Animal Collective's (almost nearly SOLD OUT) tour starts in May at The Ottobar in Baltimore. Opening up the first half of the tour will be Grouper, with Black Dice warming up the crowd on the second half. One of those Black Dice supported shows will be here in Austin at Stubb's on June 5th. Hopefully you already bought your tickets though, cause this one's already SOLD OUT! Tickets ($20-$25) are still available for their Dallas show at the House of Blues though.
