Tech & Music Thursday, which is steadily dropping its first topic. You know the drill.
This week, we have the intense pleasure of listening to the latest musical genius of Noah Lennox, otherwise known as Panda Bear. You know him from Animal Collective, the band behind the earth-shattering 2009 record Merriweather Post Pavillion, as well as his pseudonym’s debut album Person Pitch.
There are obvious connections among all of Lennox’s projects: dreamlike harmonies, techno influences, and lyrics that transcend the conventions of popular musicians today. Lennox has the ability to transform electronic music from an abrasive, unnatural sample of sound to a combination that sounds to me like pure inspiration.
My favorites are “Girlfriend” and “You”, but listen to the whole EP.
Pick it up on now iTunes or soon on vinyl.
It’s Tech & Music Thursday, so here is a newly-released song from Wild Flag’s debut 7-inch. Just in case you haven’t heard, WILD FLAG is the fresh project of female music greats Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney), Mary Timony (Helium), and Rebecca Cole (The Minders). WILD FLAG plans to release their first album on April 16th, but you can catch them at SXSW today.
