Panda Bear - Person Pitch

Rating: 8.6/10
Modern Music Review
Animal Collective member Panda Bear (a.k.a. Noah Lennox) boldly returns with his long-awaited third solo record Person Pitch. Years in the making, Person Pitch marks a dramatic departure from Panda Bear’s previous solo record Young Prayer. The acoustic instruments of Young Prayer have been replaced with samplers and electronics. Voice of goodness, sounds of natural world, a calm view, they're singing by your side, in their own language, and you're listening to them in garden of eden. I'm not sure if Panda wanted to tell these. But i know well about its undiscovered anthemic work of art deserves a long time to spend with. Owls, so beautiful creatures . At the opening part of song "Bros", you hear voice of a owl which perfectly goes with theme of song. What a sweet melody it has, bringing all fresh waters in a man-made ceramic cup.

Fusing Panda’s dramatic life changes over the past few years (marriage, moving to Lisbon, becoming a father) with his ever-increasing sonic palette (standouts include Caetano Veloso, Berlin Techno, Scott Walker, and Kylie Minogue), Person Pitch is suffused with the kind of feel good modern toe-tapping pop that seems harder and harder to find these days. See "Im Not" for flawless dreamy beats , despite its lost energy, there is no escape from self-analysis by the music.

It goes to wrong direction at times, and draws a clouded picture by language of noises. It's quite open this is music which has no commercial request. And this makes "Person Pitch" is a good standout work of Panda Bear, and also it shows his love in music. Songs like "Good Girl/Carrots" and "Take Pills" have no direction, and they love changing the melody flow in every two minutes. It's like a journey to a looking for we come from. At the same time it's not as clear as a view. However my observations show that "Person Pitch" gives a worth listen.

Like on cover, it's an uncertain, complex experimental music that will effect every person differently . For the hipped Panda Bear followers "Person Pitch" is tasty food, as he keeps a music centered career "Person Pitch" takes its position in a relaxed manner. A record for angelic combination of instrumental orders.
