It's taken a little while but the drifting dreamy Beach Boyscapes of Panda Bear's lauded 'Person Pitch' record is finally being re-produced by others hoping to catch onto some of the magic that catapulted that album into the stratosphere. Firstly the excellent recent single by Jagwa Ma but even more noticeably the opening track on this the debut by these shockingly monikered Danes. I mean what kind of name is that? You can barely say it, it has a 'z' in it and the colour 'pink' doesn't really work in the context of the music. Thankfully, what is contained within, however is rather excellent. Yep, opener 'Time is Like a Melody' is Panda Bear by numbers but 'Myriad Pyramid' is much more interesting. A glorious hotchpotch of styles, a little African pop, a bit of Hawaiian strum, '60s weirdness, some Van Dyke Parks and Sufjan Stevens. It's hard to pin down exactly where they are coming from or what they've been listening to (the answer would seem to be 'everything') but it's an enormous heap of fun throughout and so damn catchy. 'Parabolic Delusions' has hit written all over it - somewhere between 'Graceland'-era Paul Simon, Arcade Fire and The Go-Team but a whole lot weirder. I've enjoyed every single track so far and as you know I'm a right old grumpy boots. Go seek!!!
