Panda & Angel has a website that is under construction and reveals nothing about the band. I have also been able to gather very little information on the band elsewhere to accompany the amazing 13-track demo I have. All I know is that the band is creating some of the most hauntingly dense and (well) eclectic pop music I have heard in some time.
Featuring Josh Wackerly (of S), Carrie Murphy (of Touchdown Eagle), and Sera Cahoone (of Carissa’s Weird), their sound combines the sedated dissonance of early Low and Chan Marshall with the melancholy-filled distortion of My Bloody Valentine, but also brings to mind (perhaps) the free-form abstractness of Akron/Family. Husky, provocative female vocals (Julie Doiron-ish at times), lo-fi guitars, heaps of other assorted instrumentation, and a spacious pared-down rhythm section come together in great angst-filled indie pop songs.
Their self-titled EP is is scheduled for release by Jade Tree Records on July 25th, 2006.
