A stationary camera is set up on a street in Lisbon (the adopted hometown of Panda Bear, aka Noah Lennox) and the image cross fades throughout the day, capturing all the people walking down the road.

Noah Lennox is really good at making beautiful music, but you might be forgiven for forgetting this on occasion. Lennox's band, Animal Collective, has spent much of its discography (Merriweather Post Pavilion a notable exception) hiding Lennox's melodic gifts behind waves of atonal drone and challenging musicality-not necessarily a bad thing, in many instances, but it has the effect of making it a special thing to hear Lennox on his own with his Panda Bear project.
