iTunes Review

Animal Collective co-founder Panda Bear (a.k.a. Noah Lennox) pursues his infatuation with ‘60s-era vocal groups into strangely beautiful terrain on his fourth solo album. Tomboy finds Lennox constructing sturdier melodic structures and allowing his lyric to surface more clearly. The mood on this album is dreamy and nostalgic, taking the lush pop sensibility of Brian Wilson and filtering it through the exoticism of the Cocteau Twins. A beachside mood pervades “Surfer’s Hymn” and “Friendship Bracelet”, invoked through plangent vocal harmonies and woozy instrumental murmurs (not to mention ocean wave effects). Matters get positively giddy on the reverb-drenched “You Can Count On Me” and almost childlike on the ghostly, clattering “Alsatian Darn”. Even at his oddest moments, Lennox infuses his creations with a wistful dignity, rising to poignant (if spacey) heights on the closing track “Benfica”. Tomboy shows distinct signs of Panda Bear emerging from his cavern of sonic murk into the clear light of heartfelt expression.

I can see the point made by the other reviewer sometimes it can feel a little over-produced, the reverb is a bit glassy, and not warm like on Person Pitch, but this album is still good, don't think its a failure at all, and I like all the oddities think it wouldn't appeal as much to me if it was stripped back an acoustic, but it doesn't feel like its moved on from Person Pitch, which is a shame. Still worth a purchase and chill out too, nice summer feeling.
