Boomkat Product Review:
Third in a series of crucial singles from Animal Collective's Panda Bear setting the scene for his 'Tomboy' album coming 2011. He's certainly pared his sound down to a few well-worked elements with these recent tracks, focusing on those heart-warming vocal harmonies and plaintive echo chamber percussive elements with 'Last Night At The Jetty'. It's possible to detect a slight dubstep influence in there if you were that way inclined, but pinched and rounded to the indie pop format to provide a refreshing framework for those seasonal vocals. The same sense of minimalism is applied to 'Drone', duetting brilliantly blindfolded and dissonant synth chords with extended vocal drones in quite an avant-garde sense, yet with sincerest pop intentions.
