Noah Lennox, est loin de s’être reposé depuis la parution de son quatrième album solo, Tomboy en 2011. Depuis le succès de son album Person Pitch en 2007, chaque nouveau disque de Panda Bear est un événement attendu fébrilement, d’autant plus depuis sa collaboration avec Daft Punk (Doin’ It Right, sur l’album Random Access Memories).

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper sorti en 2015 voit notre héros quitter le minimalisme délicat et ouvrir de nouveau sa boîte à outils soniques pour réarranger sa multitude d’influences en une potion magique en perpétuelle ébullition. Des textures et techniques de production hip-hop old school se mélangent aux mélodies cycliques qui ont fait sa renommée, pour créer un son dense et enjoué.

Il sort un nouvel EP en janvier 2018 A day with the Homies.

English

Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, a.k.a. one-fourth of the founding members of Animal Collective, has had a far-from-quiet few years since the release of his fourth solo record, 2011’s Tomboy. Since the breakout success of 2007’s universally-adored Person Pitch, each new Panda Bear release is a highly anticipated event, and with a high-profile Daft Punk collaboration later, that’s more the case than ever. But if the title of his fifth solo album as Panda Bear seems to portend certain doom, think again. Taking his inspiration from ‘70s dub duo albums like King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown and Augustus Pablo Meets Lee Perry & the Wailers Band, Panda Bear prefers to frame his latest work as less of a battle and more a collaboration. “I see it [as] more comic-booky, a little more lighthearted,” he says. “Like Alien Vs. Predator.”
Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper finds our hero leaving the airy minimalism of Tomboy and unpacking his sonic toolbox again, rearranging the multitude of his disparate influences into the ever-morphing concoction he refers to as “the soup.”
