As we’ve mentioned, Panda Bear is releasing his new 7″ single, “Tomboy”/”Slow Motion” tomorrow. This single is the first of in a series of single releases that will eventually make up Panda Bear’s upcoming album, presumably called Tomboy. Rumor has it that this album will be out in September. You can stream “Tomboy” and “Slow Motion” now below, but keep in mind that these are low quality rips.
I’ve only listened to this a few times, but neither of these tracks strike me as instantly gratifying as “I’m Not”/”Comfy In Nautica” was back in 2005 when Panda Bear released it as the first single for Person Pitch. Which could mean two things; one, the tracks will slowly open up with each listen, allowing me in (like most of Panda Bear’s work), or two, these songs simply just aren’t as good. It’s also interesting to note that Panda Bear released “I’m Not”/”Comfy In Nautica” nearly two years before Person Pitch was released.
Props to Some Kind of Awesome for the upload.
