Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, has announced more solo dates for 2010. Yes, the dates are in Europe, wah wah wah, but that’s why we have technology right? Here’s what we need to do: find a couple Europeans (preferably white), have them bootleg the Panda Bear shows with MD recorders and digital cameras (preferably Japanese), find bloggers (preferably “of color”) to post the audio/video pointing to ZIP files and YouTube, and then HAVE MULTICULTURAL SEX WITH EVERYONE INVOLVED.
After we’re done boning each other, hopefully Panda Bear will announce details for his new solo album, rumored to be titled Tomboy. Here’s what he said about the album in an interview with Pedestrian.tv last year:
The rhythms are really basic and kind of raw and simple and are electronic. It’s not live instrumentation, I’ve been playing guitar but I feed it through the same thing that the sequences are on. It’s a very electronic sound and very voice heavy. A simple arrangement of drums, the guitar and singing. Really there are only two or three elements to every song. It’s pretty raw sounding for better for worse. The tone is a lot darker and it sounds sort of dramatic or romantic to me.
