Panda Bear is the member of Animal Collective who made the nearly perfect solo record, Person Pitch. I was on his Wikipedia page and noticed all the sampling he did for this album and thought that highlighting some of these bits & pieces would be fun.
We begin with Agnes Montgomery. She's the artist who created the iconic album art (shown above) and the collages shown below. Agnes is based in Philly. Signed limited edition prints of her work can be purchased for $125 here.
Comfy In Nautica features a sample of Geino Yamashirogumi's song Tetsuo. Geino Yamashirogumi is a Japanese folk collective that could have over 70 singers and 100 members at any given time. The members consist of every day people that range from businessmen, doctors, students and everyone in between. The song Panda Bear sampled was a commisioned tune from the soundtrack to Akira. The picture below is taken from Julian Cope's website and shows some of the members performing.
Take Pills, the second song on Person Pitch, contains a sample from a Scott Walker's ballad, Always Coming Back to You (shown below) and The Tornados song, Popeye Twist (shown below that).
