Panda Bear Creates a Musical Art Piece You Need To Listen To Right Now
“Faces In The Crowd” stands out as my favorite track, as it goes up and down in terms of sound design and features some very interesting notes. I like the way it flows through the noise and comes together with vocals that are all but poignant, and saturated underneath a wall of sounds. Simply put, it’s a strong track of unique musicianship. “Untying The Knot” is another grand opus for me, and it really shows off Panda Bear’s intricate layering, albeit simple to some. I love the flow of the record, going from one end of the spectrum to another in terms of influence. You will not find yourself thinking that his is a droning record that just plays on the same note over and over again, as many other solo projects seem to do these days.
Panda Bear’s “Mr. Noah” EP is a solid example of experimental independent music. It’s definitely full of life and interesting parameters. I like it, and definitely recommend it to fans of indie recordings. It’s hard to put this one in one genre, and can only be exemplified as an artistic approach to musicianship. You owe it to yourself to check this out.
