Nick: very atmospheric, a little bit flower power. reminds me of the mama & papas, both melodically and rhythmically, very pleasant. where are they from?
baltimore / new york kinda thing.
I would’ve guessed the other side of the country, they probably feel out of place in baltimore.
well, he lives in lisbon these days.
I don’t hear any Portuguese influence though.
the sound effects are very nicely used, very subtle and not overdone. it’s hard to make out what the sounds are though, and apart from the mama’s & papa’s it’s hard to note any other influences.
enya and george michael are both listed as influences on the inlay.
enya I can hear definitely, in the whole feel of it. not george michael though.
and it’s just one person? very clever stuff. has he written any film music?
not that I know of.
well someones going to ask him pretty soon I’d imagine.
occasionally there’s parts that don’t quite work, but still it’s very nice, nice and regressive.
as a 20th century interpretation of flower power it’s great stuff.
Well it’s coming to that time of year where we all start compiling our end of year lists so I thought it apt to play nick my favorite slice of 2007. Noah Lennox aka Panda Bear is also a member of the post-animal collective band Animal Collective who have a new album out in January.
