coolness is having courage to do what's right

Just a reminder that our album of the year thus far, Panda Bear's Person Pitch, comes out today on Paw Tracks. The record got a nice little mention in Sunday's New York Times, as well as an extremely positive 4-bunny review from those arbiters of legit independent culture and the arts over at Playboy Magazine (written by none other than Pitchfork's Marc Hogan). Any guesses on the Pitchfork score? I'm assuming it'll be up tomorrow morning...I'm going to go with 9.1.

Hogan really liked it, so if he reviews it for pfork i'd say it'll be a high mark. Anything in the 9's is great... my guess is 8.9 though.

"sluicing out records"

God I love the New York Time's vernacular sometimes.

i'm going to claim the nerd card for staying up late to see if pitchfork was going to post the review for person pitch today, but the lead review is for sound of silver, which got a best new music nod and the highest score of the year thus far at 9.2.

being as though this was the score i thought they were going to give person pitch, i have to up the ante and go with 9.4.

this album is slowly becoming one of my favorite records of the year, and it's all your fault.

I'll say it again....

Panda Bear should pay The Russian Futurists's Matt Hart a royalty for every copy of this album he sells. He's completely ripped off his whole sound and aesthetic.

My guess is a 9.3.. just because I think it's better than the new LCD but who knows.

This is a crazy week for releases..
-LCD Soundsystem
-Ted Leo
-Andrew Bird
-Panda Bear

I'm anxious to see what Armchair Apocrypha gets.

Definitely in the 9's. There's no doubt it will rank amongst the Top 5 on the year-end list. I already like it as much as the Animal Collective releases, if not more.

This isn't even the best record coming out today. But then again you guys don't seem to really like hip-hop. It's a damn good record but not as good as you are making it out to be.

This album is complete and utter aural euphoria. If it doesn't get at least an 8.8 i will be sorely disappointed.

Whoever said that panda bear rips off the russian futurists, what are you talking about? and more importantly thanks for wasting 3 minutes of my life on their myspace page... terrible. Aside from both bands playing music, I can't really hear any similarities. Maybe if you said beach boys or another much more apparent influences I could somewhat agree...

4:47 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Really? No similarities at all? Interesting.

Here's a test - cue up a Russian Futurists song, then cue up a Beach Boys song, and then be honest with yourself and tell me who "Person Pitch" sounds like.

Maybe Panda Bear wants to claim Beach Boys as a reference or inspiration - he certainly wouldn't be the first. Ever since "The Soft Bulletin", the Beach Boys/Brian Wilson has become rock crit shorthand for lush/sincere/grandiose, usually with major key melodies.

But Panda Bear's sound sure owes a lot to the aesthetic that The Russian Futurists carved out - that sample/loop based, heavily reverbed vocals that are buried/secondary to the melody line, big (but again buried) harmonies.

Listen to "Comfy In Nautica" by Panda Bear and then listen to anything off of "Let's Get Ready To Crumble"...I'm thinking "It's Actually Going To Happen", off the top of my head.

I'm not bagging on Panda Bear here - I like The Russian Futurists, and the new Panda Bear is fine too. But it's being treated as if this is a new fresh sound that no one's really done before, and it simply isn't true.

And again - who cares - people bite people's styles all the time.

But to claim that there's not a similarity there - if not a precedent - is just not listening with your ears.

I had always ignored The Russian Futurists because of the horrible fucking band name but the case this anonymous dude is making is pretty fucking clear if you listen to the MP3 tracks on the band's site. Again, ultimately, who really cares, but he is right.

No one is saying Panda Bear is doing anything new or ground breaking; it's just a damn good record. I absolutely love the Russian Futurists too, but Panda Bear's voice is so much prettier than Matt Hart's. That's what sets "Person Pitch" apart for me.
And hooray for Ted Leo-- he makes damn good records too.

Anonymous matt said...

I feel the Russian Futurists similiarity - Get Ready To Crumble was among my fav records the year it came out. Though I just think Panda Bear has the whole soundscaping thing down better than Matt Heart.

I think the media makes the beach boys comparisons more than Noah does. He is on record in saying that children's music influences him more than most things.


Pay royalties? Seriously? Get a grip...

The royalties bit was a joke. Just a little good ol' American sarcasm.

And fair enough points, Matt and Anon. Good to see some informed opinions

They will miss the Metin2 gold and they will try their best to play this game to get the joy. As long as they earn the Metin2 yang they will be happy and they think the game is very interesting. Of course they have to have a lot of Cheap metin2 gold by themselves. Sure, that process of achieving will have its unpleasant and disagreeable aspects.I am lonely so I play the game and Buy metin2 gold to give my friends. They also give me a lot of Cheap metin2 yang while playing the game.
