ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
the pandas are a collective of musicians and knob twiddlers from worcester ma. heavy use of found sound samples combine with a 'plug in and play' aesthetic to create a refined sound with a cut and paste approach.

[review by paulcollegio.net]
The more I hear this, the more I love it. So many influences, from Mille Plateaux Click-Hop to Mole-era Residents to Hacker-era Clock DVA to Livonia period His Name is Alive. Really lovin' this. And the fact that they sample James Coleman and Liz Tonne makes this exceptionally high class stuff.

[review by Scott McLennan]:
The Pandas did a beautiful job fusing electro and ambient musical components on their debut recording "Pan De Monio". The collective created, sampled and re-sampled sounds to create 70 minutes worth of mesmerizing sonic landscapes, some instrumental, some augmented singing and spoken word passages. Compared to some of the other projects that members have been engaged in, this work aims for a broad sound that moves and breathes in an amoebic fashion. The ensemble, though, avoids the biggest pitfall facing artists in the ambient field by keeping the mellowest passages from slipping off into the realm of background noise. Also in the plus category, The Pandas created indelible melodic hooks for their songs. Yet, in seeking an aural middle ground, The Pandas likewise avoided the middle of the road, making "Pan De Monio" an off-beat, but thoroughly engaging affair.

The key word here is texture. It’s almost like a mechanical river; incredibly precise but somehow earthy enough to invite a listener latch on, even if that listener isn’t incredibly well-versed in electronic music. Slurring through watery hums and washing over jagged rhythms, this release from Worcester, Massachusetts pools in the shadows of a gorgeous synth canopy before rushing through narrow clay channels and off of a high cliff. Fans of Mum’s brand of musical whimsy will certainly find a home here, but the Pandas offer a few more teeth to contrast the flurry of sweet high-endedness. Sure, listen to it on your big speakers, but give it a whirl with your headphones before deciding you’ve heard every piece of it.
