Listen to Panda Bear’s ‘Tomboy’
Finally. After years and months and weeks of anticipation, Mr. Noah Lennox aka Panda Bear, arguably Animal Collective’s most important and most talented member, is just about ready to release Tomboy, the follow-up to 2007’s history-making Person Pitch. The record comes out on April 12, but you can stream the whole thing now over at NPR. It’s very, very good. More minimal-feeling than Person Pitch, full of processed guitars and those warm Lennox vocals. It’s certainly a lot to soak in and you’re definitely going to want to buy the record itself (that’s the wax paper-y album cover above), but for now this stream is pretty crucial.
