Filmmaker Danny Perez in person!
"...So I'm not really sure if the Animal Collective and Danny Perez collaboration ODDSAC is genius or insane or some combination of the two, or the if the low-fi hallucinatory visuals here represent some great leap for music movies-- I'll leave that to Pitchfork to sort out. What I do know is that ODDSAC definitely doesn't look like anything I've seen at Sundance, or maybe even in my life, and at its best moments captures some of the aural layers and intensity of the band's music itself. If you're going for «visual album,» I'd say that's pretty good.
Featuring more humans and deliberate «scenes» than you might assume looking at the cover of Animal Collective's newest album, ODDSAC is something like an ramble through the terrifying, surreal sides of nature, starting with a girl in a rural house being terrorized by approaching fire spinners, veering over into sinister-looking rocks at waterfalls and a vampire melting in a marsh, then concluding at the same house, where nature seems to have stopped menacing people long enough for them to have a joyful food fight. There are moments of abstraction as well..." — Tiny Mix Tapes
