Panda Bear: Token

The last few years have seen the 10th anniversary celebrations of two milestone Panda Bear (aka Noah Lennox) albums—first, his acclaimed solo work Person Pitch (2007) and then the Animal Collective commercial darling Merriweather Post Pavilion (2009). Now Lennox is gearing up for a new solo release, Buoys, and both the debut single and the latest release “Token” continue to stoke excitement. Directed by, and featuring experimental musician, Dean Blunt, the video’s quite a carnival ride. And that’s exactly what one expects from Lennox—especially when working with Person Pitch collaborator Rusty Santos. We’re more than decade removed from his first release and Lennox is still delivering unprecedented creativity.
