What’s your spirit animal? Mine is definitely this stoney three-toed sloth chillin’ extra-hard on his wicker hammock. Sarah Jessica Parker’s is clearly a majestic stallionKurt Vile’s is a squirrel. An adorable, nonchalant little squirrel that loves to share psychedelic peanuts and radical tunes with his furry compadres.

Don’t believe it? Watch the Philly-based indie folk phenomenon summon his inner-rodent and perform “I’m Eating and Going Nuts, Man,” perhaps his most spirit animal-revealing song to date, in this brand new clip from HBO’s newest animated series, “Animals,” down below.

Vile will appear as the latest musical guest (following A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky rapping as bodega cats) in this week’s episode of “Animals,” airing this Friday on HBO at 7:30 PM PST.
