When Panda Bear (aka Animal Collective’s Noah Lennox) finally releases his fourth album, Tomboy, on April 19, 2011, it will have been nearly nine months since the first single, “Tomboy,” graced us with its presence. Since then two other singles have followed, “You Can Count on Me,” and “Last Night at the Jetty.” By the time Tomboy does drop, more than half of the album will have already been released in these singles… I’m not complaining, of course, just pointing out a fact.
And now we have another new Panda Bear song/video making the rounds, “Atiba Song,” named for the photographer who directed the video, Atiba Jefferson (along with Ty Evans). As one whose heart still leaps at the sound of a skateboard against the asphalt, it’s a nice addition to the song… watch the video and you’ll see what I mean.
