Panda Bear, Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper

pandabear

Panda Bear is otherwise known as Noah Lennox of cult LA band Animal Collective, and his fifth solo album combines more styles than you can shake a stick at to produce a record which veers from the flat-out odd to the almost radio-friendly.

Some tracks recall Pink Floyd’s poppier late 1960s side, while Brian Wilson is also clearly a keen influence. It’s as mad as a box of frogs and occasionally a bit too out there for its own good but it’s definitely worth a spin.
