Video: Animal Collective - Applesauce

Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society...
Earlier today Animal Collective premiered their new video for "Applesauce" via Pitchfork.tv. The video is clearly intended to enhance the aural experience, so on that I'll just note that the band does mention that the video should be watched in total darkness (and ye jittery ones fret note, it isn't scary.) The track is probably my favorite from last year's Centipede Hz, and one that I've pondered a good bit on the meaning of. I eventually came to the conclusion that the song deals with growing older but doing things that make one feel youthful, still. It's a pretty concept that, when coupled with the already uplifting nature of the song's instrumentation, makes for a killer feel-good track.
