There's been much animated discussion online about the meaning of Animal Collective member Noah Lennox's latest solo album under the Panda Bear alias. Whether or not Lennox really is musing on death (as he did on 2004 album Young Prayer, which was recorded in the months following the passing of his father) is almost irrelevant; you see, Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is a delightfully eccentric listen, full of humid, psychedelic pop songs drenched in '60s style reverb. As a result, it sounds like Pet Sounds or Smile era Beach Boys (Lennox even sounds like Brian Wilson) reinvented for the 21st century, with synths and electronics replacing harmonium and evocative orchestration. As a result, Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is a sunny sonic delight.
