Techno is not my bag: It’s busy, noisy, and usually irritating.  Which may be why I really enjoyed Pantha Du Prince’s third album.  His brand of electronic music is known for being minimalist and textured.  This latest release, on Rough Trade records, is fascinating–subtle kettle drum percolates under thumping, but slow, bass on “The Splendour.”  “Stick to my Side” has vocals and crisp chimes and beats.  It’s almost folky.  The album feaures songs with Noah “Panda Bear” Lennox of Animal Collective and Tyler Pope of !!! and LCD Soundsystem.  Highly recommended.
