Pandatone Happy Together
- Words: Josiah Hughes
- Label: Music Related
Three years since his debut, Lemons and Limes, on the now-defunct Neo Ouija label, New York's Pandatone (a.k.a. Trevor Sias) releases Happy Together on his own Music Related imprint. Expanding on the processed guitar compositions of Lemons and Limes, Happy Together features spare field recordings, carefully placed synths, and hushed vocals from Julianna Barwick and Sias himself. "The Last To Remain" opens the record with subdued layers of acoustic guitar and Barwick's comforting voice. Elsewhere, "The Fog of Memory" recalls early Greg Davis, while "We Fucking Love You" channels a quieter Kid A. By carefully balancing chopped experimentation with lush tones and accessible songwriting, Happy Together has something for obsessive audiophiles and casual pop fans alike.
