Panda Bear – Tomboy

- by Thomas

Lemme start this one off just like my Handsome Furs review… When Noah Lennox isn’t writing songs for indie darlings Animal Collective, he’s making music for his side-project Panda Bear. Under that moniker he pretty much became the spokesperson for chillwave. And you know what I learned while listening to “Tomboy”? Chillwave is boring as fuck.

Voices float in and out of focus backed up by some synth sounds that are covered by delay and reverb. I’ve read a bunch of reviews where this is being compared to the Beach Boys… if that were true and Brian Wilson and co. sounded anything like this, I doubt they would still be a reference today. Some may call this hypnotising, I just think it’s plain annoying.
Score: 3 out of 10
