April Fool’s: Panda Bear and Jay-Z Duet!

Dudes. Ok. So. Noah Lennox, aka Panda Bear from indie overlords Animal Collective, has been lending his vocals to a lot of performers lately. There’s been Taken By Trees, Atlas Sound, and most recently Pantha du Prince. Well, now you can official add Jay-Z to that list. The reverb-washed crooner was approached after a Brooklyn concert by the once reigning king of hip hop about collaborating. Lennox told the CrookedSine blog: “I’ve always loved hip hop and early 90s dance and R&B. The group [Animal Collective] has been incorporating elements of that for awhile into our sets and recorded material. I’ve especially been shifting that direction for my upcoming album. I’m a huge Jay-Z fan, and when he approached me after the show, saying he wanted to work together, I was floored.” You can read the rest of the interview here. As for me, I’m eagerly awaiting how many hipster heads will explode due to this news.

Blog Spotlight: Persona Don Dada

A month ago, my internet colleague (and dare I say, friend?) Joel posted a thrilling article detailing some of today’s worst music on his infinitely RSS-able blog, Persona Don Dada. Not only was it an impassioned and hilarious analysis of a disgusting corner of the zeitgeist, it inspired many outraged fans of these “musicians” to voice their complaints in the form of comments. This was supplemented by Joel, many of his friends, and myself responding to the fans and offering our own input. Do yourself a favor, read this post and be sure to read all the comments at the bottom as well. It’s incredibly worth it. More info about PDD is just a hop, skip, and a jump away.
