Buoys, Noah Lennox’s sixth full-length as Panda Bear, is out now on Domino.
The nine-track album, which landed last Friday, opens with “Dolphin,” the aquatic-inspired song co-produced and co-mixed by Rusty Santos. In an interview with Stereogum, the Animal Collective member explained that Santos was the force behind Buoys’ musical direction.
“[…] One of the things that was attractive about working with Rusty was hearing him talk about the kind of stuff he was making and where his head was at with music and production, namely sad trap, Latin trap, reggaeton, stuff like that,” Lennox said. “I was like, ‘I wonder how the songs that I’m doing filtered through that perspective would sound?’”
Other songs on the LP include “Cranked,” “Inner Monologue” and the spellbinding “Token,” which arrived last month along with a music video.
