Panda Bear takeover: Personalidade by Fernanda Pereira

FERNANDA PEREIRA

My wife Fernanda makes clothes and is a far more inventive and creative thinker than I am. Im especially fond of this collection of jackets she made a little while back. The fabric for the jackets comes from traditional Portuguese blankets (Fernanda is Portuguese I should mention) and I like the idea of walking around covered in a blanket...

Panda Bear takeover: Niagara – Sessao Caseira

NIAGARA

This is another local group that i like a lot. I first saw videos of theirs as promotion for one of the Principe nights and liked how they grafted with the music. They’ll have a new 12” record coming out soon but for now check out this video which shows them playing together...

LITTLE DRAGON

Here’s a recent one from this Swedish band. I like the singing a lot and really like how they go the extra mile to craft synth sounds. They also don’t seem to let the machines do the work which i can appreciate...

Panda Bear takeover: Max Graef

MAX GRAEF

I like the Rivers of the Red Planet album a lot. Max mashes together a bunch of different styles and elements but they all sound happy enough together if you know what i mean. There’s a humorous mystery and fog around the music that I like a lot too...

Panda Bear takeover: Moodhut

MOOD HUT

I’m a little foggy on the details but this is a label out of Vancouver and is home to a bunch of producers and groups. Jack Js Something (On my mind) was one of my favourite things last year. There’s a chunky beauty to a lot of it that I really like and nothing’s synched to death or oversanitized which I appreciate...

Panda Bear takeover: Antibirth

Monkey Injection

My good bud Danny has just wrapped up shooting his new film called Antibirth. Danny has made video for my shows since 2007 and made a movie called Oddsac with Animal Collective a while back. He enjoys the twisted and more grotesque side of things but also has a fantastic sense of humour and fun. I feel like he brought something out in my most recent songs that was a little under the surface and at this point its difficult for me to separate the songs from his images. Here are some hi res stills from the shoot. -- Panda Bear
