If you weren’t aware of this one then there’s only one question you should be asking yourself – where the hell have I been? PANDA BEAR releases his third official album tomorrow from Paw Tracks, and the world couldn’t be happier. Continue reading “Panda Bear – Tomboy”
Another Panda Bear 7″ just dropped, and it showed up at my door just one day ago. It’s funny how quick I turn around to share it with you guys, not just because I know the world loves Panda Bear, but because we’ve been following this whole Panda Bear thing since the first 7″.

It’s another 7″ from PANDA BEAR today. That means we must be getting closer to the release of his much-anticipated full length album “Tomboy”, which they say is supposed to drop sometime in the Fall of 2010. Thus far, this is the second installment in a string of 7″ records that are being released up until the full album finally drops. As a quick side note, you can check out the first 7″ right here. With the second 7″ now released, there can’t be that much more time to go, because Winter is just around the corner. Which makes me wonder how many more of these 7-inchers there are still to come. I guess only time will tell, so while we wait, why don’t we check out this new 7″?
Most places across the web already have a decent description of these songs, so I kind of feel redundant going into anything specific. Plus, I have to be at work in under an hour, so I’m not going to go crazy. “You Can Count On Me” is a “gentle duet between Panda Bear and himself, glimmering with third world melodic overtones – an ethereal uplifting number that is over before you become too familiar.” The track barely lasts over two minutes long, so that definitely makes sense. You can hear it for yourself right below. Then flip over to the B-side for the deliciously awesome “Alsatian Darn”. It’s yet another shiny, glimmering track that nearly doubles the length of the first song. Lots of pitter-patter, clapping, and unusually clicking sound effects overshadow the song, bringing thoughts to mind like “What was that?” Be sure to check this one out below too, because it’s shaping up to be quite an awesome full length once it’s finally out. Not sure where you can still pick up this sold out, limited-edition-of-500 7″, but I left you guys with the best links I could find. Good luck!

Hey hey. Here’s something for you guys today that I’m pretty sure most of you are already aware of. And if not, then where the hell have you been?
It’s a brand new 7″ from the PANDA BEAR man himself, and it’s one of many 7″ records that are going to be released in the coming weeks/months. With each new 7″ release from Panda Bear, we will be getting closer and closer to the full-length release of “Tomboy”, which is due to drop sometime during the Fall of 2010. Until then these 7″ singles should hold us over, but it will only be a matter of time before people start going ape-shit for the full-length. While nobody can guarantee anything about the upcoming LP, one thing is for sure: the labels who release these 7″ records are guaranteed some hefty income. I was lucky enough to snag my copy of the 7″ from Paw Tracks, and when I checked back the following day the record was already sold out. Can you say bank?
So it’s kind of a short post for today, but I’ll have another nice gem for you guys tomorrow! In the meantime you can check out the A-side from the 7″ right below, but that’s not all! Head on over to The Yellow Stereo where you can check out the glitchy, dubstep B-side track “Slow Motion”.
