Song of the Day: Panda Bear Remixed

Panda Bear's Person Pitch was one of my favorite records of 2007, and the remix of "Comfy in Nautica" by XXXChange is growing on me. This track bears little resemblance to Animal Collective member Noah Lennox's swirling dub masterpiece, and only a few of the echoey vocals remain. The idea was to make Panda Bear danceable, and XXXChange succeeds in producing a very groovy beat that sounds a bit like Justice, another of my favorite groups last year.
