Monday Mix #2

Take Pills - Panda Bear
This comes off Panda Bear's brand new album, Person Pitch, which is a spectacle to say the least. The style is similar to Animal Collective's though I would say it's more powerful, tribal even. If you're a fan of either of these band's previous work, you will undoubtedly find plenty to enjoy here. This song may take a while to get started, but the second half is sublime.

We Built A Raft And Floated - The Shins
Is there anything this band can do wrong? Even their old EPs and B-sides sound great. How cool is that weird sound!? I've really gotta find out what instrument it is.

Dance With Me (Lords of the New Church) - Nouvelle Vague
For those who don't know, Nouvelle Vague play Bossa Nova style covers of 80's New Wave. Most of the album is just a joke, but this is one song that really stuck with me

In A Minute - Bird Automatic
Bird Automatic are an up and coming Sydney band that show plenty of promise. They played the Playground Weekender festival and are beginning to make a name for themselves. I'm really looking forward to seeing what they'll come up with in the future

Technology - The Whigs
Thanks goes to Ivy League records for putting me onto this band. In fact it's one of the few times I've been sent something that I really liked. I'd classify their sound as somewhere between The Kooks and US counterparts, The Strokes. It's nothing groundbreaking, but well worth a look.

That Panda Bear song was something else. Reminds me of what might have happened to the Langley Schools Music Project children when they grew up.

Thanks for sharing, dude.
