Panda Bear announces A Day With The Homies
'A Day With The Homies' is Panda Bear's exciting new EP that will be released 12th January via Domino Records only on 12" vinyl.
Panda Bear is the co-founder of the experimental pop band Animal Collective. He has released five solo LPs since 1999, his neo-psychedelic pop has been getting continued critical praise as he has persistently developed as a accomplished musician.
Panda Bear has spoken about 'A Day With The Homies', "It's been my perception that these things tend to homogenise experience so I hope you’ll forgive me if I don’t outline, in any specific way, the many choices involved in its creation. I appreciate your role as filter or translator, and by withholding my own blueprints for the album, I mean to encourage and cultivate your part in its trip.
The songs aren’t lyrically linear or narrative as such, though I did scatter pieces of longer-chewed themes across the tracks. I find they still work satisfactorily alone, but strengthen each other’s messages when combined.
I hoped to make something without frills or much embellishment, principally because I’ve found more fluff tends to equal less power. Since the juiciest action is entirely focused in the deeper zones of the frequency spectrum (at least from where I’ve sat), power was key.
My greatest hope with this stuff is for it to live like my favourite songs do, which is to say like comforts or companions. Thank you very much for listening and I hope A Day With the Homies can mean something to you."
