Panda Bear’s Tomboy

by Dave ~ May 17th, 2011. Filed under: Reviews.

Noah Lennox’s music as Panda Bear does two opposite things at once. The easier part, given today’s laptop-centric sampling technology, is to create looping, ephemeral noise music that doesn’t feel as if it’s made with recognizable instruments. The second, and harder part, is writing harmony-limned vocal melodies that call back to some of the oldest stuff in music — church choirs, crooners and Lennox’s aesthetic north star, Brian Wilson.
