Below we bemoan the lack of surreal musical artistry on our TV screens and yet over in America it seems to be in good form thanks to none other than David Letterman. We're not sure if he was too aware of Animal Collective before they performed the brilliant 'Summertime Clothes', but we could be wrong. The look on his face reflects the fact that he may not own a copy of the brilliant Merriweather Post Pavilion, but even he must have enjoyed the neon lights, sheet wearing backing dancers and the general whiff of bong.
We enjoy the bit around the 1:15 mark where it looks like it might all unravel amidst nonsensical chatter but they somehow manage to reign it all back in. PLUS, the song is all about summer and feeling really quite hot which is what Musick has felt like all day so it's topical AND tropical. Brilliant.
