Jane - Berserker



Jane is made up of Noah Lennox (aka Panda Bear of Animal Collective) and Scott Mou, a New York City DJ, the two of them basically jamming together, riffing on a theme until they find something they like, something that speaks to their spirit. When writing of the sessions that turned into Berserker, the first full album from Jane, Noah expresses the following: "...its the dance that gets us going on Jane... mostly it was about hanging out together and talking and playing music and thinking and feeling and having fun and dancing most of all." One would likely be forgiven, then, for approaching Berserker and thinking it's going to be a dance album. Because it's not. Not by a long shot. The only people that would have a prayer in the world of dancing to Berserker are the same people who spend long hours in their homes interpretive dancing to sounds of the rainforest.
