A Brand-New Panda Bear EP Is Available Right Now
Crosswords EP is out today via Domino, but will be released physically on November 15.
It’s only been a few of months since Noah Lennox (a.k.a. Panda Bear) released the PBVSGR Remixes EP (which only came out a few months after he released the excellent Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper), but it seems like the Animal Collective member hasn’t closed the new music book on 2015 yet. This morning, Lennox dropped a new five-track EP featuring three fresh songs and two alternate versions of previously released material.
“No Mans Land”—the lead single from the Crossroads EP—is a funky and playful track that finds Lennox straying from the ethereal sound of Meets The Grim Reaper. With an eclectic beat, a strong vocal melody, and looping flourishes reminiscent of The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows,” “No Mans Land” brings Panda Bear back down from the clouds and places him firmly into the rich sonic soil of the natural earth.
You can listen to the entirety of the just-announced (and released) Crossroads EP at Spotify now and purchase the EP at Domino’s website instantly.
