Noah Lennox has already released two remarkable solo LPs (including my personal favorite of 2007, Person Pitch), and since the beginning of 2014, the rumor mill has been building excitement for Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, his third solo LP set for release in early 2015.
Lennox has shared an EP to stem the tide, and the lead track, “Mr. Noah,” sits nicely next to the best moments in his solo discography. After a thirty-second freak-out of an introduction, “Noah” grabs hold of the listener with a fluid, magnetic melody impossible to escape, much like the Grim Reaper’s meeting date with all of us.
Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reapers is out 13 January via Domino. The Mr. Noah EP is out now on iTunes.
