What's really the difference between Panda Bear and Animal Collective? I really can't tell. Panda Bear is technically the solo side of Noah Lennox. And it seems a bit on the darker/serious side as compared to the more carefree fun Animal Collective. Whatever. Semantics. They both make gorgeous music which can best be described like Beach Boys on acid. Wait, the Beach Boys were probably on acid. Whatever. It's sonically diverse and stuffed like a turkey. And it's amazing and bursting. Extroverted music. And yet Panda Bear's newest dives inward. Yes it's still full of buzzes and beeps and boops but there is a real emotional core at the center. A piano sometimes shows up, fuzz lingers. It's often very melancholy and at times a bit cloudy. Not gloomy per se, but cloudy. And often very beautiful. Maybe the title means this is the end of the Panda Bear side. If it is, it's quite the eulogy.
