CD Review: Tomboy [2011]

Musician: Panda Bear
Release: 4/2011
Label: Paw Tracks

Comments: Lost a big write-up I just did! Not going to dwell on it…has happened before and will happen again. GREAT TUNES: “You Can Count On Me,” “Slow Motion,” “Last Night at the Jetty,” and “Alsatian Darn.” Not as spectacular as Person Pitch — this has some tunes that simply aren’t as strong as the very best — but Panda Bear does tend to impress when he changes things up in-song. He’s always been good at that.

Grade: B (84)
