The Panda Bear enjoys a cool bath while contemplating how to best utilize tribal rhythms and brian wilson harmonies while hunting the elusive indie blogger

On Animal Collective’s wildly successful Fall Be Kind EP, Panda Bear pondered: “Will I get to move on soon?” In relation to an ongoing struggle with AC-obsession, the answer for indie bloggers is… no. Because Panda Bear is releasing a new album this year called Tomboy. And the eponymous lead single just dropped. And it is awesome. Panda Bear fans know what to expect: Pounding Drums, Repetitive Motifs, Beach Boys-y harmonies. I won’t tell you much more; you probably activated the player as soon as you clicked this link, anyway. The wait for the Tomboy leak just got worse.

“Tomboy”

Was underwhelmed on first listen at least, but there's a good chance it'll grow.

judging by the b-side, slow motion, i think this is going to be one of the more forward tracks on the album. I could see the rest easily falling into an "I think I can" vein

i hope there are more really cool BEACH BOY HARMONIES on the album

I've heard this song and the b-side to the single and they're good but not as good as anything on Person Pitch. I'm still stoked for the album to come out though

liked it on first listen and i can tell this is type of song that will get stuck in your head for days upon repeated hearings

"can someone please inform me where to find these 'pounding drums'?"

I also felt this way, although second listen I liked this a lot more.

Seems like the sort of nonsense I like to listen to when I'm hungover or too tired to move

Slow Motion is so much better than this.

Electric City
07.16.10
youre right i jumped the gun and posted tomboy before i really listened to slow motion

Electric City
07.16.10
added slow motion to make up for that

tombits
07.18.10
definitely more subtle and less hard-hitting than most of the material on his debut... i'll have to listen to these a few more times.

DoubtGin
07.18.10
