Panda Bear - "Boys Latin"

I could take or leave Panda Bear, both as a solo artist and as part of Animal Collective. But his collaboration with Daft Punk, "Doin' It Right," off Random Access Memories softened me on the guy a bit, and for the last several months I've been enthralled by "Boys Latin" off his latest solo record, Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper. "Boys Latin" transcends concrete meaning and does what his best music always does, which is to deliver pure emotion. Just don't ask me to explain the video.
