Amidst his ongoing U.S. tour, Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, has been teasing new music off his forthcoming solo album, tentatively titled Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper. As we previously reported, the follow-up to 2011’s Tomboy was made with British producer and longtime collaborator Sonic Boom and has been described as “break-centric” and influenced by hip-hop producer 9th wonder, featuring tracks “constructed out of samples of self-made sounds” and is “meant as a celebration of the fact that new growth sometimes requires death.”
Now, fan-made footage from those concerts has surfaced. Along with mind-warping light projections, Lennox debuts new material that continues to push the boundaries of his wondrous psych-pop sound. Watch some of those videos below.
And be sure to catch him on the rest of his upcoming tour.
