I find the idea of a visual album extremely intriguing. From what I gather it's a very abstract and visual representation of the songs composed for the album but it's all connected which makes it more than just a collection of music videos.
If you want a little taste of the visual feel if you're not totally familiar with AC's psychedelic approach- give this a watch
Check out a sample track I found- think is the sort of tunes we can look forward to.
I thought I was just missing both the SF and NYC showings but as it turns out, I'll be in LA during that screening! Heard there's Q&A after with the director and Animal Collective Members- so freakin cool!
