Panda Bear

"Panda Bear is the project of Animal Collective member Noah Lennox. Tomboy, his long-awaited fourth album as Panda Bear, and follow-up to Person Pitch, is now complete and will be released on his own label, Paw Tracks on April 19, 2011.

Over the past six months or so, Panda Bear has released a series of vinyl singles on different labels, including Domino, Paw Tracks, and Fat Cat, with the final single forthcoming on Kompakt. The Tomboy album will be a compilation of these songs, along with new ones that have not been released. Additionally, all the songs have been added to and newly mixed with help from Sonic Boom to give the album a wonderfully rich and warm sound. stay tuned for more details." [PRESS RELEASE]

It was back in September that we learned we definitely wouldn't be seeing Panda Bear's album in 2010, or maybe even anytime soon, so this is good news.

In related Animal Collective news, Animal Collective member Deakin will share a bill with Black Dice and Mirror Mirror this Saturday in Brooklyn at Secret Project Robot, a venue which is moving to a new location at the end of 2011. Meanwhile they have a full schedule at the current location. More details, more event listings (including a Knyfe Hyts residency) and this weekend's flyer below...

Also, to the guy above, so it isn't a sure thing? What do you mean by that?

"Biggest joke is animal collective splitting up and going solo."

Actually, they are going to start work on a new album this year too.

Yeah, from what I knew AC never split. They just decided to take a year off or so to focus on their respective solo projects.

Good to hear they'll be back at it.

Posted by Anonymous | January 15, 2011 3:05 PM

So its not a collective anymore?

Posted by Anonymous | January 15, 2011 11:02 PM

They never split, people..just took time off for solo projects and stuff. I talked to Brian/Geologist at the Paw Tracks CMJ showcase and he said they were gonna regroup soon.

Yeah, it's been repeated over and over again. Some people are idiots. Although in the case of BV it's probably MOST.
