There is also a website for Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, which brings you to a video of a sparkly hooded and face painted “Grim Reaper” holding a panda bear stuffed animal. This inevitably leads to the destruction on the bear, with psychedelic graphics overlaid on the video of the destruction.
It was 2011 when Lennox last released his last album Tomboy with his own label, Paw Tracks. But was also featured on Daft Punk’s song “Doin’ it Right” from the album Random Access Memories. Lennox has also been busy as a member of Animal Collective with the release of Centipede in 2012, and two EPs after that, “Honeycomb”/”Gotham”, and “Monkey Been to Burn Town.”
