A week or so ago I noticed on Metacritic that Panda Bear had a new album out and it had gotten really good reviews. So naturally, I wanted to check it out. The first song i came across on YouTube was Latin Boys - it's got a cool music video to go along with it too.
I don't know enough about music to talk a lot about what makes something good or bad - all I can do is gauge whether or not it is appealing to me. This is definitely appealing. The beat is catchy, kind of edgy, and somehow soothing. That's as descriptive as I'll attempt to get. I started looking for more and found, to my delight, that I really enjoyed the earlier albums as well. Person Pitch and Tomboy are both excellent from start to finish. It's not really mainstream in any way, but I like it.
