Panda Bear & Sonic Boom

Psychedelic pop/Electronic act Panda Bear and member of Animal Collective (Noah Lennox) and former Spacemen 3 member/Electronic producer Sonic Boom (Peter Kember) have formed the ultimate artistic alliance, releasing their joint electronic effort ‘Reset’ back in August 2022 via Domino Records.

Panda Bear and Sonic Boom as one entity have created a powerful Psych Pop sound built on the foundation of sampling 1950s and 1960s pop songs from Sonic Boom’s exquisite record collection. As a collaborative force Panda Bear & Sonic Boom endorse musical experimentation through intelligent manipulation of sampling and production, angelic dual pop vocals, and electronic soundscapes and textures. These two artists as a duo are creating a sound which embraces the beauties of the past, present, and future, proving themselves to be an exciting staple of the post-modern in music.

‘Reset’ , the catalyst of Panda Bear and Sonic Boom’s joint artistic journey, celebrates the nostalgia of vintage pop reminiscing on the glory days of acts such as the Beach Boys, as well as the primal need for ambient soundscapes and minimal pulsating beats.

“In the remarkable case of Noah Lennox, aka Panda Bear, and Peter Kember, aka Sonic Boom, the two have melded so completely that they sometimes seem like a single musical mind.” – Pitchfork

“Sunkissed, innovative, uplifting, and as soothingly euphoric as evening shadows on a summer beach, Panda Bear and Sonic Boom’s first complete musical collaboration, Reset is an album that stirs the listeners soul, as much as it uplifts it.” – Louder Than War 


Ruunes is the solo project of Ed Chivers from AK/DK and Fujiya & Miyagi, fusing synths, cassettes, arps and drones.


Automouse (DJ)

Live only and all hardware. Automouse transmit relentlessly dirty sounds from a dystopian/utopian future. The eye eats a tiny bit of the soul you weren’t using anyway.
