This is despite what Panda Bear enthusiasts would have you believe. It started with soulful Briton James "I Don't Play Tennis" Blake's premiere of the Martin de Thurah-directed video accompanying his cover of Feist's "Limit to Your Live" on Pitchfork; friendly endorsements from umpteen tastemaking blogs abound followed throughout the day. The posting at Yours Tru.ly proves to be the most instructive. In addition to the gravity-defying and quietly creepy clip, there are five additional MP3 examples of Blake's vocal fortitude. "Measurements" is still stirring after a dozen listens today.
