new Panda Bear | untitled (live at primavera sound)

New heavy dub droner from Panda Bear, performed live at this year's Primavera Sound fest. Possibly the most sinister-sounding Panda Bear jam to date, thanks to a well-utilized King Tubby loop that serves as the track's foundation.

That's one of the great thing about festivals - hearing new material early on!

"A Rougher Version" is the illest

i mean, it's heavy for a bit there in the start, then it just turns into "surfer's hymn" (what it was called after the Germany live rips at least), which is one of the sunnier/more joy-inducing P'Bear tracks.

can't wait for this album. any idea if this song is on the Tomboy single?

I really think Panda Bear is playing his guitar through MIDI into the M3 synth then using his sampler for the little loops. I can see how these songs on record could really shine. I do not think we will be disappointed.

forgot how killer "a rougher version" is. this was a great reminder.

also, it must be summer here -- i've listened to person pitch the past two mornings.

the first song sounds like pantha du prince with what sounds like a constant church bell throughout. also very minimalist.

@Judson, http://korg.com/Artist.aspx?artist=636 yes that's exactly what he's doing

As for Tomboy, i think it'll be about viewing the world through his daughters eyes as she grows older and he sees more of his personality unfold within her. Daily Routine and I Think I Can sounding stuff

I think his new stuff is going to be of far less widespread appeal than Person Pitch, based on the gig I was at a couple of months back (not saying that it isn't going to be good, just that I suspect it mightn't be a critical chart topping crossover hit like that last album was). Less hooks and more droney and repetetive, from what I can tell. A lot of people were getting very restless and uncomfortable after half an hour and there were plenty of disappointed remarks afterwards.

Definitely looking forward to new Panda Bear. I agree that he seems to be going in a slightly different direction, but whatever, it's his creation.

Sidenote, made the trek from NY to Primavera. Didn't catch Panda Bear, but saw a ton of other stuff. That festival is/was so solid.
