Looking Back AtThe Classic Solo Album Person Pitch by Panda Bear
One 2007 release that cannot be emphasized enough is the last release from Animal Collective’s Noah Lennox. As one of the many characters that make up the wildly popular psychedelic pop rock outfit, Lennox, better known by his moniker Panda Bear, released his third solo album last year. The more I listen to it – even now – the more it becomes apparent just what an awesome release it was.
Combining the high chorus, echo pop sounds of Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys with his own brand of songs lush with sampling and electro-pop influences, a significant departure from Lennox’s previous acoustic-centric release Young Prayer.
His record label, Paw-Tracks Records, wrote of Lennox’s debut release: “Person Pitch is suffused with the kind of feel good modern toe-tapping pop that seems harder and harder to find these days.” Indeed.
