Turns out the Giants anthem contest is not over, folks.

From the upcoming second album from the Baseball Project -- a collaboration between Steve Wynn, Scott McCaughey, and others --  we give you "Panda & the Freak," a sonic celebration of our own Pablo "Kung Fu Panda" Sandoval and Tim "The Freak" Lincecum. Check out this chorus:

The Giants got The Panda, the 
Giants got The Freak 
The Panda's smoking line drives, 
The Freak is throwing heat 
Panda and The Freak, Panda and The Freak.

See a live performance and listen to this stomper after the jump.

The Baseball Project's Vol. 2: High and Inside isn't due out until February 2011, so consider this an early sneak-peek. You can watch a video on the ESPN site, and check out the song in the player below.

Of course, after you hear "Panda & the Freak," you must tell us how you think this stacks up to the previous Giants anthems from this season.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
