Inspired by the dreamy underwater imagery of their collaborative short film, Dolphins and Porpoises, Rebecca Scott (vocals, keys) and Brian Cook (drum machine, guitar) formed the equally dreamy indie pop group PANDA RIOT in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania circa 2005. The band's buzzy guitar riffs, gossamer vocals, and swaths of synthesized distortion (the duo filtered their keyboards through a death metal pedal) gave a nod to early-'90s acts like Tender Trap, the Softies, and My Bloody Valentine. Their newest (double) album, breaks all new ground in terms of dreamy melodies, textures and layers and is one of PTP's favorites of the year.
