You’ve hereby been warned that anytime this year we see the words “Panda Bear” and “Daft Punk” in the same sentence, it’s probably going to be something I hop on the site to write about. Perhaps my favorite artists to emerge from my “post-jam” phase of musical discovery has been the Animal Collective crew, including the magnificent solo efforts by Panda Bear, so when I saw that he’d be joining the ranks of fantastic collaborators on the newest Daft Punk album I was pretty smitten about the whole affair. Even Panda Bear’s less-than-stellar outputs have always been interesting to me musically, and I can’t wait to see what flavors he adds to the Daft Punk sound. Here him talk about the process a bit in the latest video by the Creators Project which keeps releasing new videos leading up to the album release.
