About this album

Young Prayer is the second solo album released by Animal Collective member Noah Lennox (stage name Panda Bear.) The album was a critical success, even being labeled “Best New Music” by Pitchfork. Notably, none of the songs on the album has a title because Lennox wanted the album to be “one nugget of sound. I put the track markers in there just to separate the sections.”
The songs were all written around the time of the death of Lennox’ father. About this fact, Lennox said:

“It was more a gift to my father when he was sick and I wanted to make him happy if I could and I wanted to cheer him up and I wanted to tell him that he’d done really great in his time. I was pretty fucked up but I wanted to keep going and I wanted to have strength and I suppose that comes out in the recording. I wouldn’t say it was therapeutic though, at least I never thought of it that way”.

    the album cover reminds me of cellphone related propaganda circa 2004/5 when shit was starting to blow, you can listen to "point of view" while watching at this cover, hideous and fantastic at the same time

    this is an album of the decade (possibly century, who knows?) and nobody even knows it. i don't think it sounds like campfire songs at all.
