BEST NEW TRACKS: PANDA BEAR "BOYS LATIN"

12/17/14

Noah Lennox, drummer of Animal Collective, a.k.a Panda Bear, announced his new album, Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, by releasing the records first single, "Boys Latin," on Adult Swim last night.

While hipsters the world round fall over themselves to figure out how the song's title is some sort of esoteric reference to Lennox's youth, I'm just going to listen to this kickass tune. "Boys Latin" is a classic, psychedelic Panda Bear jam on par with "Surfer's Hymn" and "Ponytail." The video is a beautifully animated piece about how a gender-neutral couple procreates using some sort of hallucinogenic vagina-plant.

Or least that was my take away from the video for "Boys Latin," which you can watch below:

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is out 11/13 via Domino.

In parting, we give you the lyrics for Panda Bear's "Boys Latin":

main refrain :
beasts don't have a sec to think
but we don't appreciate our things

dark cloud descended again
has a dark cloud descended again
has a dark cloud descended again
and a shadow moves in
dark cloud descended again
and a shadow moves in the darkness
