An album that name-checks The Big Liebowski, has a song about off-shore drilling on Mars, and a ballad asking a girl to be “his habit” and “come on and grab it” can’t be bad, can it?
No, it can’t.
Panjanatan is a witty, constantly shifting record that combines quirky electronica with “real” instrumentation to create a unique, fascinating sound. It makes me think he must be great live.
