Pantha Du Prince Black Noise
The third full-length from Hendrick Weber maintains the high quality of previous efforts while pushing certain elements of his shoegaze-y, minimal-inspired techno sound further. Noah Lennox (a.k.a. Panda Bear) contributes some lovely multi-tracked vocals to "Stick to My Side," giving even more emotional resonance to Weber's always-emotional sonic palette. And in a nod to classical minimalists like Philip Glass and Steve Reich, the prepared bells and other organic percussive elements heard on the album repeat in hypnotic swirls, yet change slightly every so often. With the glassy, Superpitcher-like phrases of "Satellite Sniper" and the ambient warmth that rides over the kicks on "Welt Am Draht," Black Noise just might be the height of Weber's work under the Pantha Du Prince moniker.
