Boy, if there’s one thing I wasn’t expecting from this life, it was for Panda Bear to be a zombie. But, hey, here I am, screaming out in pain while the man legally known as Noah Lennox gnaws away the remaining meat on my left arm. Guess I won’t need pills anymore, eh? Unless they make a pill that cures being dead. Because, you know, that’s what I’m about to be. Dead.
At the very least, I can use these last moments of life to make Panda Bear look like kind of a jerk. So here goes: Panda Bear has added more dates to his upcoming world tour. Accompanying him on these shows will be Sonic Boom, the former Spacemen 3 member who co-produced Panda Bear’s latest record, Tomboy (TMT Review). Shucks, I almost forgot: Sonic Boom, also a zombie. He is currently devouring my left leg.
If you are among the living, you can purchase a deluxe edition of Tomboy, on October 31 if you reside in Europe, or November 1 if you reside in North America. What makes it so deluxe and special is the fact that it’s a four-disc vinyl version with a bunch of instrumentals and single mixes and a capella versions. That will come out through Paw Tracks. Anyway, Panda Bear, you’re welcome. You can thank me by feasting on my sweet, sweet gallbladder.
