Panda Bear is the first solo album released by Animal Collective member Panda Bear at the age of 20 on the label Soccer Star Records, which was run by himself and Animal Collective member Deakin and initially founded only to release this album. Therefore, it is also the very first Animal Collective related release, apart from the EP, "Paddington Band", which was a recording by the Animal Collective precursor, Automine.


Panda Bear commented on his approach to making the record:

I kind of feel like I didn’t even have a concept of what an album was back then, for the first one, when I was 15, 16, 17, 18 or so. I just put songs together that I liked at the time.[2]
