One of the many shows as part of NYC's Red Bull Music Academy 2014, Panda Bear will play Warsaw on May 18 with Dâm-Funk and Torn Hawk and it's now sold out. That show is also part of a May solo tour for the Animal Collective member (aka Noah Lennox) who also contributed vocals to Daft Punk's "Doin' it Right." He'll be trying out material from his new solo album which will be out later this year on Domino. The tour starts with an appearance at Austin Psych Fest and all dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks (who also play Psych Fest) will release their debut album next week (4/8) on Domino and will play Bowery Ballroom on April 21 (tickets).

Pitchfork

Pitchfork just posted their Top 100 Tracks of 2013. It's got what some people might call the worst song ever, the song with the most talked-about rap verse of the year, some surprises, and some of the year's most undeniable songs. Their #1 pick is certainly one of those undeniable songs, whether or not you're a fan of the artist who made it. What do you think of their list? Did your favorite song make it? Any glaring omissions?

Check out the full top 100 below...

Drake

Spoiler alert. Here's an excerpt from Ezra's 10-out-of-10 review of Drake's new album Nothing Was the Same:

Why did I invite Panda Bear and not my wife? Fair question. Our son was only two months old at the time, so she didn't want to leave him with a babysitter. Also, all u eagle-eyed readers might remember that Hans and I bonded over a shared predilection for a certain song by a certain band -- that's right, motherfuckers, the one and only ANIMAL COLLECTIVE.

So I'm picking out my outfit when I hear a buzzing sound -- OMG I'M GETTING A TEXT. I run upstairs PRAYING it's from Hans but... it's just Panda Bear again. His friend from college, Nathan, is in town. Can I get an extra plus on the list?

The rest of that review can be found at the Talk House (who are hosting a CMJ showcase at the same venue Ezra took Nathan to).

Drake is touring with Miguel and Future.

Vampire Weekend recently played Barclays Center where they also appeared for the VMAs which Drake also played but will be most remembered for Miley Cyrus, who, after recently hosting and playing SNL, played with The Roots and Jimmy Fallon last night, as you can see in the video below....

The next in Daft Punk's "Collaborators Series" videos is up and this time it's Animal Collective's Panda Bear. While we don't get to hear any of the Random Access Memories track he sang on (just more "Get Lucky"), he does get into how it happened and what it was like to work with them. Check it out below.

Daft Punk's Random Access Memories is out May 21.

Daft Punk

Daft Punk are making a comeback this year with Random Access Memories (due out 5/21 via Columbia imprint Daft Life Limited), their first album since 2005's Human After All. They haven't revealed any full tracks from it yet, but from those two 15 second clips, we basically already know that we love it. Unfortunately, we New Yorkers never get a chance to see them. All they seem to do these days is pop up at Phoenix shows (but not last Friday's show), and then that secret show at 285 Kent turned out to be an April Fool's joke. Who knew?!

Luckily, we will get a chance to see the eight piece Daft Punk Tribute Band, imported from Toronto, who play NYC on July 3 at Highline Ballroom. What's more, we even know what time they go on (10 PM). Reportledly, these guys "have been melting faces and liquifying dancefloors with sold out shows at the most prestigious clubs and concert halls across Canada" since 2009. We can't wait to get our faces melted, Canadian style, in NYC. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

In terms of the real Daft Punk, the rumored tracklist of their new album features appearances by Julian Casablanacas, Giorgio Moroder, Pharrell, DJ Falcon, Todd "The God" Edwards (who sang on Discovery), and Paul Jackson Jr. (who played guitar for Michael Jackson), in addition to previously announced guests, Nile Rodgers, Paul Williams, and Panda Bear.

Like Giorgio Moroder just did, Todd Edwards also discussed the new album in a video interview, which you can watch, along with a live video and check out the full rumored collaborators list, below.

tame impala

There have been rumors flying that Daft Punk would release a new album in 2013 and it's looking that that's going to happen. Both Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter are confirming the the French electro duo have signed with Columbia Records. The Guardian, meanwhile, reports that the new album will be out in May. The album reportedly features guest appearances from Nile Rodgers, Paul Williams (!), Animal Collective's Panda Bear and more.

Not counting 2010's TRON: LEGACY soundtrack, Daft Punk's last album was 2005's underwhelming Human After All. The band last played NYC at Coney Island in 2007 but did make an appearance at Phoenix's Madison Square Garden show in 2010.

Animal Collective

Animal Collective revealed the first and super distorted lead single for their new album, Centipede Hz. It's called "Today's Supernatural" and you can stream it below. The track was premiered last night on Animal Collective Radio, a new weekly online radio show, which airs every Sunday at 9PM EST, presented by Domino and Creators Project. Each show is hosted by a different member of Animal Collective. Last night it was hosted by Panda Bear, and in addition to the premiere of the new single, his show featured guest DJ sets by Black Dice, Sublime Frequenices, and Haunted Graffiti. If you missed last night's show, it will be streaming on loop for the 24 hours following its airing.

As mentioned, Animal Collective will support the new album on a tour with Micachu & the Shapes which hits NYC on October 5 at Williamsburg Park. Tickets for that show are still available.

Teengirl Fantasy's Tracer artwork
Tracer

Brooklyn duo Teengirl Fantasy have been having a pretty solid year. Back in January, they inked a deal with R&S Records (James Blake, Lone) who are putting out their killer new single, "Motif," on vinyl on June 25 and digitally on July 9. That single comes with the b-side "Eternal" and an Actress remix of "Motif." Check out the video for "Motif" below.

Now, the duo have just announced the release of their sophomore LP, Tracer, which will be out on August 21 via R&S/True Panther. They've roped in some pretty impressive guests for the album, including Panda Bear, Romanthony (aka the voice of Daft Punk's "One More Time"), Laurel Halo, and Kelela. The album won't include "Motif," but it will include "Eternal." The full tracklist is below along with a teaser video and that's the cover art above.

You can catch Teengirl Fantasy at a local show this weekend when they open for fellow Brooklynites/True Panther labelmates Lemonade at the previously discussed Music Hall of Williamsburg show on Saturday (6/2), which also serves as the NYC debut for Elite Gymnastics. Tickets for that show are still available. All TF dates are listed below.

Speaking of Laurel Halo, she put out her own (excellent) new album, Quarantine, in Europe this week and it will see a US release next week. You can stream that album in full below.

Videos, streams, tracklist and a list of all Teengirl Fantasy dates below...

Adele

We already posted Pitchfork's and SPIN's, so... here's Rolling Stone's top 50 albums of 2011. It's got tons of big sellers and major label players taking high spots like Adele, Jay-Z and Kanye West, Paul Simon, and Lady Gaga, but then something unexpected like tUnE-yArDs places at #13. There are also some odd inclusions like Wavves' Life Sux EP and then some albums you could only find on a Rolling Stone list like SuperHeavy (the supergroup featuring Mick Jagger, Joss Stone, Damian Marley, and others). They also give shots to Little Dragon, Josh T Pearson, Das Racist, Wild Flag, and many more. Check out the full list below...

New Moods

New Moods (whose members include a Young Magic member and Gang Gang Dance's engineer) have been busy practicing for their 9pm set at the BV Holiday Party at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight (12/13) (some tickets will be on sale at the door), but they managed to get this list in just in time for those going (or still thinking of going) (or wondering if they should show up for the opener) (you should!) to get to know them better. Here is a list of the top 10 music things that New Moods loved in/about 2011 (in no particular order)...

Panda Bear

After an opening set by recent Domino signees Ducktails, Panda Bear came on stage with Tomboy-producer Sonic Boom (Peter Kember of Spacemen 3) to perform the recently released album in its entirety at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Sunday night (7/3). The sold out venue came off as a bit of an underplay for Panda Bear, whose last NYC show was headlining Governor's Island, though the intimacy made for the perfect setting. Panda Bear spent most of his time on guitar and vocals as Sonic Boom handled the knob-turning duties. Together, they took psychedelia to an entirely different level. Audience members' senses were blurred as the venue was filled with excruciating volume, while smoke machine smoke sifted through the air and trippy visuals swirled on screen. The hazy atmosphere was even more obscured by lights and colors shooting over the audience from projectors. I found myself needing periodic reality checks to remember I was at a Panda Bear show and not in some other weird dimension.

The delivery of the album was spot-on, and in typical Panda Bear/AnCo fashion, he ditched song breaks for droney interludes, extended passages, and trancelike repetition, adding at least 20 more minutes to the 50-minute album. The drone parts especially came through live. They added breathing room into the intense set that you didn't realize you were getting until the songs picked up again.

After one other non-Tomboy track ("Ponytail"?), he ended the show with Person Pitch-favorite "Comfy in Nautica" to much excitement from the crowd. And while I was equally excited to hear that song, it helped further illustrate how cohesive Tomboy is. The album's unlikely marriage of drone and Beach Boys-y psych pop is like no other. Tomboy lacks the immediate standouts like "Comfy in Nautica," and performing the album from start to finish showed how well it works as a continuous piece of art, and not a collection of singles. Panda Bear chose not to do an encore, which was fitting. The Person Pitch tracks, although great, already felt a little tacked on to what was a very complete set.

More pictures, the setlist and some videos from the show below...

Panda Bear at Governor's Island in 2010 (more by Erez Avissar)
Panda Bear

Tickets go on sale at noon for the Panda Bear show at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Ducktails, who recently signed to Domino opens the show. Panda Bear contributed vocals to "Killin The Vibe", a b-side off Ducktails' Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics, which was released this past January. I wonder if Panda Bear comes on stage with him at MHOW and plays the song. Ducktails also plays Bowery Ballroom with Woods and White Fence on August 13. Tickets are still available for that.

Panda Bear and Ducktails aren't the only Animal Collective and Real Estate related acts playing together this summer. Real Estate's recently announced tour that hits Maxwell's on July 24 is with Paw Tracks artist Dent May.

Ducktails and Animal Collective both recently played Primavera Sound in Spain. Listen to their sets, and others, at WFMU: Ducktails (Day 1) @ Primavera, Animal Collective (Day 2) @ Primavera.

Animal Collective's summer tour dates include a sold out show in Prospect Park with Black Dice who will also play MoMa's 'Warm Up' series at PS1 on August 13 with His Name is Alive (DJ set), oOoOO, Clams Casino, and others.

Still no word on where Zomby is playing.

Panda Bear

Panda Bear is playing Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 3, a venue much smaller than last time. According to MHOW's website:

"This show will be will call only. No hard tickets will be issued. There is a 2 ticket limit per person and tickets are non-transferable. Tickets will be available online only. Not available at any outlets."
Tickets go on sale Friday (6/10) at noon. Noah's only other upcoming solo date is as part of a big fest at Hollywood Bowl on September 25th with TV on the Radio, Arctic Monkeys, Warpaint, and Smith Westerns.

In related news, Panda Bear's voice can be heard on the new Zomby album, and Animal Collective has dates coming up too including a sold out show in Prospect Park with Black Dice who also opens the Merriweather Post Pavilion (the venue) show three days earlier. Black Dice also opened for AC in Prospect Park in 2009. Zomby did not.

Check out a new video of Panda Bear's "Slow Motion" directed by Cheryl Dunn spliced with an interview and live footage of his set at Governors Island in 2010, along with more dates, below...

DOWNLOAD: Zomby - "Things Fall Apart" (Feat. Panda Bear) (MP3)

Zomby

UK producer Zomby is releasing his first album for 4AD, Dedication, on July 11 in the UK and July 12 in the US. Panda Bear provides guest lead vocals on the track "Things Fall Apart," which you can download above. Dedication is/was currently streaming in full on hhv (it doesn't seem to be working at the moment). Check out the full album tracklist below.

July 12 is the same day Animal Collective play Prospect Park in Brooklyn, two days before Zomby's TBA New York show (7/14) which is listed on his myspace. Stay tuned for more details, and hopefully those details aren't a cancellation this time.

Remember when Zomby was supposed to open Animal Collective's Prospect Park show in 2009. It would be cool if he makes up for it by opening at the same venue in 2011. Don't hold your breath though. Zomby also recently cancelled his appearance at the Animal Collective curated-ATP last month. According to 32 RPM...

"Zomby has cancelled and lots of people eager to suck up his revivalist bullshit rave music were forced to mull around wearing their best faces of disappointment. I didn't mind. Zomby is a REDACTED and if it means he's ten fans down after blowing the festival out then that goes to shape a better tomorrow. For one he confused Steve Moore completists and for two the world needs a 90s rave music revival like it needs an airborn Aids strain.

Now much as I was left non-plussed by them I have to say 'good one' to The Frogs for filling the gap and playing a second show."

Harsh. Zomby cancelled Sonar in 2010 too. All currently scheduled dates and the album info below...
