Panda Bear-Tomboy (2011)
05 Last Night At The Jetty by deef deeferson
04 Surfer's Hymn by deef deeferson
Oddly enough I don't have much to say about this album, I think it is pretty good right now, I think it will grow to be great. It is very understated, almost the complete opposite of Person Pitch, which isn't necessarily a good or bad thing. This record is just overall more sedate, perfect beach music, not beach party, just beach music. His melodies are as strong as ever since his voice is the main attraction here. He still is in great debt to the road Brian Wilson paved before him. His style isnt so much as a rip off but more of an extension of where Brian Wilson left off. The general consensus of this album is that of "meh" and i agree but i relish in the "meh" I like that he didn't create another colorful masterpiece. This is the album for self reflection, for chilling out and letting everything kind of melt away. It's an escapist album. It IS solid, it IS well thought out and this one is defintely a grower, so if you have this downloaded don't delete it, just let it seep into your brain and something will click.
