Music Videos # 62

Panda Bear - Comfy In Nautica

"Strawberry Jam", the new Animal Collective album, has been a bit of a disappointment to me. A lot of nice textures and innovative sound structures, but where are the good songs? Slightly suffocated beneath all the experimentation... So it's back to Noah Lennox's solo project as Panda Bear and his wonderful Person Pitch album, one of this year's best records. This time, there's a new video for "Comfy In Nautica" and what could be seen as only random images of a skater, has a new meaning added by the fact that most of the scenes are shot with the camera pointed directly towards the sun. This simple fact turns the video into a beautiful showcase on different forms of light-capturing and couldn't be a better match to the song's own luminosity.
