Because there’s Something Simultaneously Discomforting and Comforting about Weird Music and Videos
By Sonny Forrest
Panda Bear, one half of Animal Collective’s main song-writing apparatus, just released his new album, “Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper,” which sounds like a minimalist-electro acid trip narrated by reverb-soaked vocals feels. He released a video for the album’s preeminent track, “Boy’s Latin.” Yes, it’s an animated fantastical interpretation of strolling around tide pools that appropriately fits with the track’s haunting vocal loop patterns.
SPOILER: We find another human being gestating inside a vibrant sea anemone at the video’s end.
