- Tomboy by 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 just a shame he gave us the best of it way before the arrival of the LP. Lennox choose to release the majority of these tracks as 7" singles that preceded the album (with 7"s on Kompakt, Fat Cat, Paw Tracks, and Domino) so much of the material is already sounding quite familiar. That said, Lennox has been courteous enough to re-address these tracks before committing them to 'Tomboy'. So, for those of you who bought the individual 7"s, you'll be pleased to hear that these tracks have been tampered with and reworked enough to make purchasing both items essential. That said these remixes aren't necessarily better in every case. Lead track 'Tomboy' for example doesn't benefit massively from the additional synths added and sounded fresh enough with just the primitive dub influenced drum beat and fantastic (and rarely used) rhythm guitar. A reliance less on samplers definitely shows though and the addition of guitars and loose rhythms gives 'Tomboy' a very organic feel. I still can't help but feel that Lennox may have spent a little too long on 'Tomboy', bogging some of the best moments down with unnecessary detail. Still, fantastic album. I'm just being fussy.
