Originally from Baltimore, Maryland. Members of the band are Dave Portner (Avey Tare) Noah Lennox (Panda Bear), Brian Weitz (Geologist). This group met in high school and have been experimenting with many different styles of music since. They utilize a lot of different synths and samplers during their performances as you can see in the amazing video found below. Their newest Cd named Merriweather Post Pavilion has taken on the theme of water and in turn their whole album has become textured with this water feeling. They use a lot of vocal interplay and layering in their songs to give them such a rich textured quality. They also believe that music and visuals should go together and they have thus created music videos/animations for each of their songs on the CD. This song in particular is about Panda Bear trying to find a house for his wife and kids, you'll notice the water theme come up many times throughout the video.
Be sure to throw some full screen on this bitch and be warned you might find yourself lost for 5:46 seconds in a shallow water lagoon type situation, it will be nice though. Thank you May Mahmoudi for the first-rate information
