"scotty and i worked together at a record store in new york city. he was a dj around town and he still is i think. we both really liked dance music and dance music from the very beginning and i mean stomps and shouts and claps and stuff like that. of course we like all kinds of other stuff too but its the dance that gets us going on jane. we played once at the animal collective practice space but found it much more pleasant to play at scottys home in greenpoint where he had his mixer and simple microphones and we would drink brews and talk about all kinds of things and then play. i would usually sing about stuff i was thinking about that day and scotty would move with it playing jams and it would all kind of pour out. we liked all the mechanical robo dance jams from detroit and chicago and germany but we wanted to do something with less 0s and 1s and more souls. mostly it was about hanging out together and talking and playing music that was about talking together and hanging out and thinking and feeling and having fun and dancing most of all." -Panda Bear (of the Animal Collective)

Title: Coconuts
Format: CD
Label: Psych-o-Path
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Coconuts" is a second official release by Jane, the duo made up of Noah Lennox (aka Panda Bear of Animal Collective) and DJ Scott Mou (aka Queens). "Berserker", the preceding Jane release, was put out by Paw Tracks in the spring of 2005. Recorded in 2002, "Coconuts" introduces the sound of the duos early days the title track was made during Janes first meeting. It was originally self-released as a limited edition CD-R. Psych o Path is proud to see this work through its first official release. A musical union that spawned from a mutual love of dance music has evolved into a sonic manifestation of a collective unconscious, one that eludes all conventional perceptions regarding what can be accomplished compositionally through the use of a turntable, mixer, keyboard and effects. Lennox and Mou relish in the freedom of home recording, calling upon the cooperation of the viscera and cerebrum in the listener, with two psychedelic jams. Through repetition and transcendence, these pieces form an erratic tide, straddling cohesion and sprawling, intently refusing to choose between the two. On "Coconuts," Mou and Lennox serve to challenge preconceived notions involving the constituents of psychedelic music. The overwhelming presence of sweat-drenched stringed instrumentation is noticeably absent. In its place is percussion that is both pulsating and skeletal (achieved through Mous masterful manipulation of the turntable), awash with keyboards and effects, joined by Lennoxs mournful, amorphous vocals. The link between these musical mediums and the realm of psychedelia is indulgence. The abscesses of the Id are gracefully confronted and pondered. The ego, and its desire for instant gratification, has been swept up in this ocean of sound. Trusting is with its weight, it chooses not to swim against the tide, but float with it, and allow itself to be carried where this acoustic sea considers fit. This edition of "Coconuts" stays true to the artwork found in the original release. The CD is packaged in a square 7" hand-pressed by Jon "Jonas" Asher, of a beautiful drawing by Mou. Rusty Santos of UUAR (whose past projects include Animal Collective) and Edik Kleyner of Jesus with Me were responsible for the re-mastering." - Psych-o-Path.
