MP3: Panda Bear – “Tomboy”
For those of you who remember 2007 (think back now, guys), you might remember a little album called ‘Person Pitch’ by a “bro” called Panda Bear, that sent about a zillion critics jumping around their bedrooms naked with sheer enthusiasm.
Panda Bear would go on to repeat the feat only a couple of years later, when he and his band, Animal Collective (maybe you’ve heard of them?), released 2009′s ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’: an album generally hailed by everybody as an instant masterpiece.
So, the news that Noah Lennox (aka. Panda Bear) is back with another solo outing this April is no small news. In fact, you’d better go slap on your poncho and cover your floors with newspaper now, lest you wish to be subsumed by fanboy drool.
“Tomboy” – the title-track from the new album – shows Lennox has lost none of his knack for kaleidoscopic pop dreamscapes. Bask in the track’s gorgeous circularity and look out for the full-length this 15th April via our friends (with benefits) at Mistletone.
