is a split record
and Animal Collective
member Panda Bear
. It was limited to 1,000 copies. This is Panda Bear's third single for his 2007 album Person Pitch
"Carrots" consists of two sections: "Good Girl" and "Carrots". "Good Girl" lasts for the first four and a half minutes, and then segues into "Carrots", which itself consists of two separate sections. The last section of the song contains a sample taken from Kraftwerk
's song "Ananas Symphonie" ("Pineapple Symphony") from their 1973 album Ralf und Florian
. The interplay between the song's three movements illustrates a statement made by Panda in an interview on Ma Fama
radio, in which he discussed the idea of performing songs the way a DJ would play records, blending samples that have different BPM
which would result in discordant polyrhythms
Excepter's side contains fragments of two live versions of "Knock Knock," whose lyrics are inspired by the traditional folk song illustrated on the sleeve, "King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O".
Side A - "Carrots":
- "Good Girl"
Side B - "KKKKK":
- "Lypse 2"
- "Who's There"
- "Knock Knock"
- "Jrone (Four)"
- "O Rly?"
