Last year at the Pitchfork Music Festival fans experienced a reunited Pavement and (among other great sets) a ferocious performance from LCD Soundsystem. This year we can look forward to Fleet Foxes, TV on the Radio, Animal Collective, and the return of Dismemberment Plan, who are headlining the annual three-day festival in Chicago’s Union Park, July 15-17.
Animal Collective fans are well aware of Panda Bear, which is the solo project of Collective member Noah Lennox. He has a new album on the way, his fourth, called Tomboy (it’s due in April), which compiles a bunch of the singles he’s been releasing lately on labels like Domino, Paw Tracks, Kompact, and Fat Cat. A few new, previously unreleased songs will be included as well. Tomboy will be released on Panda’s own label, Paw Tracks, on April 12, 2011.
We have a free MP3 download of one of Tomboy‘s songs, “Night at the Jetty,” a hazy, dreamy track that pits layered vocals and electronic squiggles against a slow beat in what sounds like an echo chamber hooked up to an iron lung. Or, something. It’s kooky, sure, but it’s also quite beautiful.
