Try to watch the new Animal Collective video for “Applesauce”By Alan Cox | January 29th, 2013 | 1 Comment »

It should come as no surprise that French director Gaspar Noé directed the new Animal Collective video. His video for “Applesauce,” a track off of last year’s full-length “Centipede Hz,” was released this afternoon.
Spoiler alert: The video is five minutes of feminine lips tearing into some type of fruit, possibly a plum. Noé, whose films include “Enter the Void” and “Irreversible,” is a master of the French shock art tradition and unafraid to attack the viewer’s senses to achieve unique and artful ends. “Applesauce” contains many of his trademarks: disturbing visions of femininity, chunky slime and, of course, flashing lights.
Animal Collective will perform at the Ogden Theater on March 22.
