Animal Collective's "Oddsac" out on DVD, today!

Animal Collective fans (and fans of all that is acid-laced, mind-bending and vaguely unsettling) rejoice! "Oddsac" (a title that conjures up images of a deformed scrotum, dipped in sequins) the "visual album" by the experimental, psychedelic indie-rockers, was released on DVD this morning. (Bonus: the movie comes packaged with a 40-page, hardcover art book.) On par with the film work of one Wayne Coyne, the 53-minute movie is guaranteed to sate the hunger of those with an appetite for the unrelentingly bizarre. Philadelphia-based director Danny Perez (who has worked with the band on past music videos), collaborated with the band on the film, which features all spankin' new music, including the recently leaked "Screens" and "Mr. Fingers." Perez' past work with the band and the above trailer should let you know that "Oddsac" is a sensory feast of the trippiest proportions. The movie apparently includes men with heads on fire, men with faces made entirely of glitter, vampire-like creatures swallowing up tiny people in their gaping maws, a happy family chowing down on some marshmallows, happy marshmallows chowing down on a not-so-happy family...and that's just a few scenes that make any sense at all. There's also an epic food fight in there, somewhere. "Oddsac" debuted at Sundance, to considerably positive, if totally bewildered, reviews and fans have been anxiously waiting the DVD's release ever since. Well, we have, at least.
