Fall down beneath their own weight"

Benfiquista como nós

O álbum novo do Panda Bear não é um 'Person Pitch', mas 'last night at the jetty' entra directamente para o top-10 das canções escritas por Brian Wilson. É só pena Benfica não ser a canção mais conseguida do disco. Tem, ainda assim, a força da ideia.

adenda: Oliver Platt na New York Magazine - "‘Holy crap! What is that?’ Because it’s at once familiar—so freaking Beach Boys—and yet wildly original. And Panda Bear sounds so much like Brian Wilson; he’s got a natural gift for harmony. If there ever was a type of music that you could label as ‘channeled’ on some level, it’s [Panda Bear’s]. I love Animal Collective, but I find his [solo] stuff … I don’t want to say more accessible, but it goes quicker to that place at the back of your neck where your brain stem starts to buzz. And the next thing you know, you’re flinging yourself around the room, crying with the thrill of living.” (entrevista aqui.)
