Panda Bear takeover: Tropa Macaca
My friends Andre and Joana make up this Lisbon group. Their recent music has a rough kind of wander that I like a lot. Familiarity feels good and safe but most of the time its the search thats most revealing. Check out the videos too… -- Noah Lennox
Panda Bear takeover: Hiatus Kaiyote – By Fire
Hiatus Kaiyote is a group from Australia I heard in my friend Dave’s car on the radio a couple of years ago. I didn’t know what was playing and I liked it so much I went online to the radio stations website log to find out. Turns out it was Hiatus Kaiyote playing a so…
Panda Bear takeover: Personalidade by 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 ide…
Panda Bear takeover: Niagara – Sessao Caseira
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 pla…
Panda Bear takeover: Little Dragon – Paris
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. Im also a fan of the song they did with Gorillaz called …
Panda Bear takeover: 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: Gala Drop – You & I
My friends Nelson and Afonso play in this local band and we share a practice space as well. Nelson and another friend Pedro are in part responsible for why Im here as they booked Animal Collective at a festival in Lisbon (the now defunct Numero Festival) 12 years ago or so...
Panda Bear takeover: Moodhut
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&CloseC…
Panda Bear takeover: Antibirth

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 f…
