  • Summary: The third solo album from Animal Collective's Noah Lennox (aka Panda Bear) is completely unlike its predecessor, as it is both upbeat and electronic, sounding like a spacey, 21st century Beach Boys album.

  1. His careful attention to detail and masterful use of vocal harmonies are unparalleled in modern indie rock.
  2. You can feel the warmth pouring out of the music.
  3. For an album constructed from so many constituent parts, Person Pitch is amazingly warm and inviting at times, wrapping around the ears, nestling the head, and squeezing like a nice familial bear hug after years of no contact.
  4. It’s easily the gentlest, brightest record to be associated with the Animal Collective.
  5. The sweetness is almost too gooey, and what should be providing a healthy contrast ends up dragging the best instrumental moments down more than once, almost literally getting in the way of the striking sonic collages. It may be heresy to some, but conceivably Person Pitch would be at its best if it were strictly instrumental.
  6. Panda Bear has created one of the most unusual and beautifully strange statements of the avant-garde.
  7. The beautiful melodies and harmonies don’t actually go anywhere, they just kind of float in and out of earshot, failing to develop or do anything harmonically interesting.

    Great use of samples! I love the beach boys inspired vocals along with city sounds planted throughout.
