Panda Bear has dropped a new EP. His latest five track collection, Crosswords EP, is the follow up from this year’s Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper. Crosswords EP is digitally out today, and physically on CD & 12” on November 13, 2015 via Domino.
On his Crosswords EP, Noah Lennox has released five fresh tracks – three new songs: ‘No Mans Land’, ‘Jabberwocky’ and ‘Cosplay’ – and two re-castings of previous ore – ‘The Preakness’ – previously heard in spirited demo form on 2012’s Tomboy LP boxset.
The EP explores Noah Lennox’s alchemical use of earthy base elements and life affirming ‘reports from the front’ to conjure up his trademark transports to the Goldilocks zone and comes appropriately enveloped in eye-popping fashion with artwork by Swiss artist Marco Papiro and with custom type-faces by Black Dice’s Bjorn Copeland. Aided on studio production duties by Sonic Boom, the five EP tracks take us tumbling down the metaphorical rabbit hole once more…as Noah’s latest Adventures in Wonderland continue.
Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, or PBVSGR, the fifth studio album from Animal Collective founding member and solo artist Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, was released in January 2015 on Domino. The Crosswords EP follows on the release of the PBVSGR Remixes EP compiling remixes from Pete Rock, Andy Stott and more.
