As is now well-known, a vast new continent of non-biodegradable plastic waste is being created just beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean; in Gorillaz's Plastic Beach, it's breached the surface to form an island which serves as the cartoon group's headquarters – a Tracy Island of the imagination, created by consumerism.

As a member of Animal Collective, Noah Lennox, better known as Panda Bear, had a big 2009. But he's not using that as an excuse to take a load off, it seems; he has already returned to his solo work this year. A follow up to his incredible 2007 LP 'Person Pitch!' is expected soon and in an interview with pedestrian.tv (tinyurl.com/yl3pr7d) he described the new music as "a lot darker and it sounds sort of dramatic or romantic to me." Recently on a brief European tour he played large swathes of new material. One blogger recorded his entire set from a show in Berlin – download it at ramin-ton.net. The quality of the recording isn't great but it might give an idea of what to expect – to me it sounds less busy than 'Person Pitch'; slower and sparse, and, as he suggested, more downbeat. There are a lot of nice sounds in there, though, so my expectations remain high. Another fan recorded 10 minutes of Panda Bear's gig in Belgium and put it on YouTube (tinyurl.com/ yab4qve) – the sound quality is a little cleaner. I particularly like his guitar playing after the six-minute mark.
