Panda Bear Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper on 2LP + Download
Domino is pleased to announce the release of Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, the fifth studio album from Animal Collective founding member and critically acclaimed solo artist Noah Lennox aka Panda Bear. Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper or PBVSGR, as the album has been referred to cryptically online over the past few months, will be out in January 2015.
Lennox has had a far-from-quiet few years with the release of his fourth solo record, 2011’s Tomboy. Since the breakout success of 2007’s universally-adored Person Pitch, each new Panda Bear release is a highly anticipated event, and with a high-profile Daft Punk collaboration also under his belt (“Doin’ It Right,” from 2013’s Random Access Memories), that’s more the case than ever.
Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper finds our hero leaving the airy minimalism of Tomboy and unpacking his sonic toolbox again, rearranging the multitude of his disparate influences into the ever-morphing concoction he refers to as “the soup.” Old school hip-hop textures and production techniques meld with the intuitive, cyclical melodies he has become known for a sound that is at once dense and playful.
The album signifies a pivotal point for an artist who has proven he can continue to evolve while remaining at the top of his game. As Lennox says, “It’s sort of marking change - not necessarily an absolute death, but the ending of something, and hopefully the beginning of something else.”
This standard 2LP edition of Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper includes the album on heavyweight vinyl in a deluxe gatefold jacket and includes an MP3 download card.
