    Panda Bear tiene un sonido extraño, como a los Beach Boys
    Cuando los escuche por primera vez pensé que era una grabacion de hace decadas. Me encantan.

    COPTER4016882, and Lily Allen’s songs are both beautiful. But Panda Bear are just weird! But I do like it, you feel compelled to keep listening to it. Did they record it, inside a washing machine or something?

    Panda Bear is also a member of Animal Collective, those brave neo (freak/experimental) folks band, they are known to do lo-fi and field recording.

    Some are nice, a lot of them are just weird to me.

    Worrying that Avey Tare, Panda Bear, Deakin and Geologist would be too long-winded a moniker, and with record companies advising that a unifying name would be necessary for the marketplace, the group decided to adopt a catch-all name. Using their old label of Animal as inspiration they picked “Animal Collective”. This formation was to be different from a straightforward band, giving the musicians the freedom to work in combinations of two to four, as dictated by the project at hand or their mood. Their first entry under this name was Here Comes the Indian, which was released in 2003 by their newly formed record label, Paw Tracks. Paw Tracks was formed with Todd Hyman from Carpark records. Animal Collective makes decisions on what Paw Tracks would release, while Hyman runs the day-to-day operations. The group was happy to find someone like Hyman, who had experience running a label and was dedicated to the group’s music; the Animal label was more or less abandoned upon the formation of Paw Tracks. Here Comes the Indian was the first record to feature all four of Animal Collective and its dense textures and energetic performances widened the exposure of the group significantly.

The song makes its imprint
in the air, making itself felt,
a felt world. Here, there,
the stunned silence

of knowing I will not remember
what I heard;

futures that will never happen,
a fluidity we cannot achieve
except as a child
creating possibility.

This is the untranslatable song
hidden in the earth.
