News__ Panda Bear’s Tomboy

April 05, 2011 | By

Tomboy is the newest album from Panda Bear aka Animal Collective's frontman, Noah Lennox. Whether he works on his own or with his band, every song this man touches turns into musical gold. Magazines and blogs alike fall over themselves to sing his praises and prop his albums up at the top of "Best Of" lists year after year. This year should be no different.

Recorded in an isolated basement studio, Tomboy is colored a shade or two darker than his last solo album, 2007's Person Pitch. In true Panda Bear style, catchy electro-pop melodies are twisted around with synths and sequencers to create a sound that is moody yet perforated. Until April 12th, you can stream the entire album exclusively here at NPR.
