Systematised change in style
Panda Bear has found his niche in the broad space of pop music by turning complex music into radio-compatible sound. He proved so both as a member of Animal Collective and four years ago with Person Pitch. Also, his roaring Tomboy maintains the splits between popularity and vanguard change in style. Nevertheless, some things have changed: »Why stick to the things that IÂ´ve already tried?«

Animal Collective are back on track: with their new record »Painting With«, they remain faithful to their skew pop approach without being wearisome.

Animal Collective can’t really do mediocre records. At least that seemed to be the case until »Centipede Hz«. But times do change – unfortunately.

Tomboy has become the Hit Album that it’s been announced as. It doesn’t quite live up to Person Pitch and that’s its only flaw, really.
