Panda Bear

This is the third album from Animal Collective's drummer Noah Lennox, yet don't expect any Keith Moon style shenanigans. This is an utterly serious and ambitious sonic adventure. However, it differs from Animal Collective with it's immediate warmth and coherence. Person Pitch is simultaneously experimental and abstract, yet always accessible and immediate. A pretty hard trick to pull off.

Imagine Brian Wilson playing the restaurant at the end of the universe and you've pretty much got it.

Makes Kings Of Leon sound like Status Quo (cue the heckles).
