[Watch] Daft Punk Continue The Collaborators Video Series with Panda Bear

Daft Punk continue their collaborators video series, and next up is Animal Collective member Panda Bear (aka Noah Lennox). On the duo's upcoming album Random Access Memories, Lennox provides vocals on the song "Doin' It Right."

During the video, Lennox describes his first coming into contact with Daft Punk's music, as he came to understand the ritual of dancing after seeing their video for "Around The World." He, like many of us, has deep connections to the duo's 1997 album Homework. He continues, describing his nervousness leading up to his time in Paris with Daft Punk. After three days in the studio, Lennox said it all came together "right at the last moment." Check out the video below.

[Watch] Panda Bear - "You Can Count On Me" (Official Video)

Gorrila Vs. Bear just premiered the brand new visuals from Panda Bear for his Tomboy featuring track, "You Can Count On Me". Just what you need if you're stuck in work eagerly watching the clock tick away towards a few days off for the holidays. At least I hope it's what you want and that you are all going to have a couple days rest with loved ones in the coming week. The video is a psychedelic visual from Danny Perez that will probably send you into a trance and take you.

[Watch] Panda Bear - "Surfer's Hymn" (Video)

PANDA BEAR "Surfer's Hymn" from m ss ng p eces on Vimeo.

Only a week ago were we given the visual splendour that was Panda Bear's video for "Slow Motion," and today, we're given yet another video from his recent album Tomboy. This time around, the video is for the track "Surfer's Hymn," which, like the video for "Slow Motion," is weird and psychadelic in many ways. The unofficial video was produced and directed by m ss ng p eces, and features some creepy, yet awesome, skeletons rising from their graves, taking hold of their surfboards, and making their way to the waves. The video is visually amazing, so check it out for yourself in the player above.

[Watch] Panda Bear - "Slow Motion" (Official Video)

Today, the official video for Panda Bear's song "Slow Motion," off of his recently released album Tomboy, was released, and features footage from his performance at New York's Governors Island on September 11, 2010. The video, which was directed by Cheryl Dunn, also features interview footage with Panda Bear. Check it out for yourself above (via Gorilla vs. Bear), and if you haven't listened to Tomboy you can stream the full album here.
