On March 14th, Animal Collective’s Noah Lennox (aka Panda Bear) will release the final installment of his limited 7″ series. The song, entitled Surfer’s Hymn, is described as a musical representation of waves crashing against the beach. As with Lennox’s previous 7″ releases, this is a limited edition pressing to build anticipation for his debut solo album, which is set for release on April 12th on Paw Tracks.
Panda Bear’s forthcoming album, Tomboy will be released on April 12, 2011. The highly anticipated side project of Animal Collective’s Noah Lennox ranges from splayed but lyrical noise, florid acoustic arrangements, and guitar-centric psychedelia, he and his bandmates have covered a vast musical territory that blurs the line between pop and experimentalism.
In advance of the release, fans can download”Last Night At The Jetty” here for free.
Fans in New York can attend a free Tomboy listening party at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker Street) on February 16th at 6pm (rsvp ) or at 7:30 pm (rsvp closed).
Several of the tracks have already been released over the last few months on other labels, and Tomboy will compile those tracks along with a slew of others. So grab yourself a fresh stack of bamboo, sit back and listen to this NPR story on Panda Bear.
