We gave it a B+

Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear of blog-beloved avant-rockers Animal Collective, isn’t kidding when he titles a cut from his second solo disc ”Drone.” Tomboy stretches out Beach Boys-style pop into a kind of slo-mo sound installation. The woozy, reverb-rich result makes for great headphone swimming (also: infant appeasement!), but Lennox is at his best with a groove to submerge; on ”Afterburner,” dude excellently imagines a disco 20,000 leagues under the sea. B+
