atlas sound x panda bear :: "walkabout"

A few months ago, we we noted that awesome new Atlas Sound song "Walkabout" (previously known as "Dovers Jam," but we'll assume it's an early version of the same thing) sounded quite Panda Bear-esque. Turns out that's because Noah Lennox taught Bradford Cox how to sample/beat match, and the two will collaborate on the final version of the song, set to appear on the upcoming Atlas Sound full-length, Logos. Cox tells P4k:
"I toured for a period in Europe with Animal Collective, whose band dynamic was very inspirational to be around. On the bus, we often played improvised iPod games. We would take turns formulating a theme or unifying concept and then play three songs. The goal would be for everyone to try and figure out the theme. During one of these games, someone played 'What Am I Going to Do' by the Dovers. I was amazed at the hook-- a weird organ thing with drums and electric bass. I mentioned to Noah [Lennox] that someone should really sample that riff. He agreed and he taught me a little about sampling and matching up beats. This ended up as the collaborative effort 'Walkabout'. "

this site can sometimes feel like a gladhanders convention. "EVERYTHING that EVER had to do w/ these guys, or sounds remotely like them is SOOOOOOO GOOOOOD"

alan paloma, animal collective, white denim, eryka.... i get it, you wish you could be them... can we break this chain, though? start a new one? fanboyism must die

anon, accidentally rejected your latest comment. yeah bro, i'm a fan of the bands i write about. i don't expect everyone to like it or care what i'm doing here. this probably isn't the blog for you, which is cool. i wouldn't sweat it enough to leave multiple anon. comments if I were you.
