Panda Bear
A Day With The Homies

We now have a reason for why Noah Lennox sat out Animal Collective’s Meeting of the Waters EP that came out midway through 2017 - he was finishing off his first solo release since 2015. This limited-edish 12” sees Lennox retreating into the deeper frequencies, combining his trademark ...view item »

Animal Collective
Meeting Of The Waters

Following on from their Painting With album last year, Animal Collective reveal the results of a recent trip to Brazil: four new tracks, recorded live in the rainforest by Avey Tare and Geologist and integrating field recordings. Animal Collective on location. Meeti...view item »

Panda Bear
Crosswords EP

If you just can't get enough Animal Collective/Panda Bear/Avey Tare etc etc etc then here's a five track EP which contains absolutely no songs whatsoever off Panda Bear's recent 'Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper' record. Instead there are three completely new tracks and two older reworked ones all recorded under the watchful eye of Sonic Boom. I...view item »

Panda Bear
Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper

Animal Collective's drummer, Beach Boys' drone aficionado and only living bear has a new record out to chew at the corners of. Panda Bear was last seen with Tomboy, a fittingly delayed and overdue record of slow, grey-scale jams, and returns now with the strobe-lit&n...view item »

Panda Bear
Surfer's Hymn (Actress Primitive Patterns Extended Mix)

Yeah, you all bought this already except it was ridiculously truncated on the flip of his last 7". I bought it, got it home, quivering all over with excitement and then, just as I was sinking into the hypnotic, dream-like trance I was yearning for, the bastard thing finished. Then I DJ'd with it a week lat...view item »

Panda Bear
Person Pitch

With great honor I shall be reviewing the PANDA BEAR album Person Pitch. I simply don't know where to start with this baby. It's the best thing I've heard this year. In my flat this record is always first on the turntable when friends come round. It's like having another friend in the room with you! The rich vocals, so reminiscent of the...view item »

Animal Collective
Sung Tongs

Clint here with more. First up Animal Collective  - one of the few new bands to lick my ears in a seductive manner and not have me chop their tongue off with a rusty pair of shears. I'm always amazed by their songs  -its kind of nice acoustic stuff slightly chopped up full of crazy noises and m...view item »

Panda Bear

Really liked the first single on this new Panda Bear LP. The now sold out 'Tomboy/Slow Motion' 7" that began this promotional campaign is easily the highlight of this new collection from Animal Collective main man and musical all-rounder Noah Lennox. That's no reflection on the quality of this highly anticipated follow up to 'Person Pitch', it's...view item »

Panda Bear
You Can Count On Me

The big cheese, or head honcho from Animal Collective's new single minces along the "chillwave" expressway like a man with a ghost for a shadow. It's pretty good stuff actually. It's a bit ponderous, bittersweet and I guess fairly reflective too. It has a good beat and a very catchy vocal line that is swathed in Spector's own reverb. The tune ma...view item »

Panda Bear

Panda Bear returns with another 7", this time on the mighty Kompakt records and it's a pretty wonky affair. Not really sure why it's called 'Techno' as it's actually 'Surfers Hymn', one of the new tracks from the new album 'Tomboy'. This is the original mix of the track and it's pretty wild! The arrangement and the placement of his loops makes f...view item »

Panda Bear
Tomboy/Slow Motion

Animal Collective's big cuddly, furry endangered sugar cane muncher is back in action after Person Pitch blew everyone's mind and here he's in an even more energetic mode. This is the first in a series of limited singles that precede a forthcoming album. 'Tomboy' has 'super blazing hot summer anthem' written all over it. It's catchy pure pop wit...view item »

Panda Bear
Last Night At the Jetty

Animal Collective founder and much loved character Panda Bear returns with the third in a series of four 7" that will eventually find themselves compiled into the next Panda Bear LP on Paw Tracks. P.B. is on his usual form here working bizarre and intangible riffs and beats into perfect experimental pop music. This will please anyone who's been ...view item »

Panda Bear
Take Pills

Regulars of these pages should be fully aware that all members of Team Norman fully endorse Panda Bear records with his bittersweet and unique ghost of Brian Wilson (yeah, I know he's still alive) sample thing. 7" 'Take Pills' sounds like a big psychedelic trip with the smurfs and has 'Bonfire Of The Vanities on The flip' and comes in a cool c...view item »

Panda Bear

Panda Bears rule. That's a fact. Can you think of anything better than hanging out with a panda? Me neither. Boyhood fantasies aside PANDA BEAR's 'Bros' 12" on Fat Cat is delicious retro sounding track that the Beach Boys could have created had they taken a million times more drugs than they were already on. T...view item »

Panda Bear / Excepter
Split EP

First up I'm listening to my new obsession. Its (Animal Collective member) PANDA BEAR and his new split ep called Carrots with EXCEPTOR. We've been listening to a promo of his album in the office this week and its so glorious it makes me weep. You guys and gals got a treat coming. Its like he's stepped into th...view item »

Animal Collective

It's hard to imagine but there was a time when Animal Collective were actual children rather than just pretending to be children. This album comes from way back when where the initial line up of Panda Bear and Avey Tare added Geologist to the line up and collected up radio sessions and...view item »

Animal Collective
Here Comes The Indian

Animal Collective. These lot are are about to have something out on Fat Cat. It was sold to us as being a bit like Acid Mothers Temple which obviously led to Phil here running out the building screaming. It doesn't sound anything like them. In fact its more like those madmen of the US und...view item »

Panda Bear
I'm Not Comfy

Whoopie! A Jukebox style 45 On War with its centre missing by Panda Bear called 'I'm Not'. I'm liking this very much. Sultry female vocals overlaid into a dreamy haze of twin peaks-esqe drugged up psychedelia. The flip is pretty tripped out too. 'Comfy In Nautica' is a blissful slice of underwater flower power with Beach Boys...view item »

Panda Bear
Young Prayer

We really liked that Animal Collective album here at the towers. A right eccentric blend of off kilter psychedelic wizardry & twisted folk wonderment it were. So with trepidation I begin to review the solo offering from AC member Panda Bear. Rambling out of tune caterwauling, nonsensical bletherings that sound like a mencap ve...view item »
