I recently told a friend that Panda Bear’s solo stuff was the only Animal Collective-related music that I’ve liked in several years.  He shot back with: "Of course you’d say that.  He’s a Jew."

Totally wrong brosef: Panda Bear (real name: Noah Lennox) isn’t the Jewish member of the Collective, Geologist (real name: Brian Weitz) is.  Furthermore, it’s not my fault that Animal Collective started to drop off after Feels, that the album Avey Tare did with his wife was TERRIBLE, and Person Pitch is one of the greatest records of my generation; eclipsing pretty anything Panda Bear could do with his bandmates.

Whatever the case, According to Stereogum, Panda Bear’s Tomboy, will start dropping singles sometime around mid-July.  I’m excited, my friend is excited, Carles is excited, Jews are excited, and goys are too.
