2013 album from the Chicago-based Dream Pop band. Recorded in an old factory in Chicago, Northern Automatic Music marks a new development in Panda Riot's sound. With the addition of drummer, José Rodriguez, the dance-laden drum machine beats of their previous recordings have a new weight and power. While maintaining a melodic focus, this record creates a darker vibe that is simultaneously haunting and euphoric. A collage of ghostly vocals, dance-y drums, dub-y bass lines and blurry guitars, the record evokes nighttime, UFOs, and pyramids in the sky.
