Panda Bear & Sonic Boom On Fallon

“Founding member of the influential band Animal Collective” Noah Lennox’s has upped his live game by including producer and founding member of the influential band Spaceman 3 Peter “Sonic Boom” Kember onstage. Folks at Panda Bear’s 3rd of July set at Music Hall Of Williamsburg raved about Sonic Boom’s contributions there, and for those that couldn’t make it to Brooklyn that night, here is the duo performing Tomboy’s “You Can Count On Me” complete with visuals from ODDSAC maestro and Animal Collective imagist Danny Perez. Also all of this means Noah on guitar, so that’s nice. Watch the Fallon performance below, watch Animal Collective tonight in Prospect Park if you have a ticket. (If not, just go close by so you can hear them at least.)

  2. The intro was gorgeous

  3. Sonic Boom on national television! I always thought Fallon was a terrible comedian, but seemed like a nice guy. Add to that presumption the fact that he obviously has some good taste in music.

    This isn’t quite Rev and MIA on Letterman, but for some reason this makes me very pleased.

  4. Not really a fan of the album. But I thought this was a good performance.

  5. everybody just wants to dance and nobody can appreciate heart

  6. he’s a little elfish-angel creature sent to earth to sing cosmic tunes.

  7. LOL at how boring that was. The cheers for the roots were 10x louder than the weak mumble for Panda. I can appreciate the guy and I think it’s cool Fallon got him on, but it’s almost arrogant how they (animal collective dudes) always have to play the least catchy thing in their catalog both at shows or on TV. Some says it’s ‘forward thinking and avant garde’, to me it’s just rude and stubborn to fans of some of their less ‘droney’ and boring tracks. Snooze.

    • Some of the tracks on the album are definitely “snooze” but to say “it’s almost arrogant how they (animal collective dudes) always have to play the least catchy thing in their catalog both at shows or on TV” is totally invalid. They played “Summertime Clothes” on Letterman and do the “hits” live…you’re talking out of your ass, chappy.

      • call me chappy again.

      • can a person actually post on here and have their opinion just be that? IF he thinks it’s rude or arrogant, let him be. These performers get 10-15k for a 5 minute song and people wait in long lines just to see it. Snooze fest galore. It was more like a sonic nap, but I still love Animal Collective.

        • No, his/her opinion can’t be “just that” when trinity says some toolish bullshit (like claiming that AC always play their least poppy songs at these sort of gigs).

          “Summertime Clothes” was the most convention jam on MPP and – correct me if I’m wrong – YCCOM is fairly easy to sing-along to. Plus, the only reason why “#1″ was performed on Conan was because the most of the songs on Strawberry Jam would be too long or too ordinary.

          You can call their performances crap and us dumb fanboys wouldn’t give two shits but to make blatant lies to criticize music that you can’t bob your head deserves some flak.

        • you need to learn the difference between opinion and fact. when he said it was boring, that was an opinion…saying he was frustrated is his business, too…but when you comment on something measurable and objective like “they always have to play the least catchy thing in their catalog both at shows or on TV”, that’s just untrue.
          i hope we can at least agree on something being “catchy” or not, whether you like it or dislike it. shit, “poker face” by lady gaga is a terrible song but i can see why it would be considered catchy.
          conclusion:
          you and trinity are a bit dim.

    • I love “You can count on me”. For me it’s one of the “catchy” songs in Tomboy.
