Regular edition INDIE ONLY. DOUBLE VINYL plus VINYL EP version PANDA BEAR MEETS THE GRIM REAPER is the fifth studio album from Animal Collective founding member and critically acclaimed solo artist Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear. It finds our hero leaving the airy minimalism of 2011's Tomboy and unpacking his sonic toolbox again (with the help of Pete 'Sonic Boom' Kember), 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, for a sound that is at once dense and playful.
