Surfer's Hymn (Single)

Surfer's Hymn by Panda Bear
Released: Mar 2011
Label: Paw Tracks
I'm not entirely sure what this is doing on Rhapsody, as it was initially announced as a limited-edition, vinyl-only 7-inch release on the German label Kompakt, which we (sadly) don't stock. And yet! Here it is. I won't tell if you don't. "Surfer's Hymn," off Panda Bear's new album, Tomboy, is a woozy ballad mixing '60s pop with pachinko-parlor blips; complete with rolling ocean noises, it sounds a lot like an acid trip on a cruise ship. The remix by London producer Actress is an unsettling swirl of droning organs, kalimba and clip-clopping percussion that moves like horse hooves on slick ice.
