Panda Bear – “Acid Wash”

In my review of Panda Bear’s new Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, I noted that album closer “Acid Wash” is about declaring victory over “the dark” and “the deep.” It’s the decisive blow in Noah Lennox’s showdown with mortality, though it sounds more like music for receiving a medal on a podium than the soundtrack to some climactic showdown. Now that Lennox’s global radio campaign has wrapped up, you can hear “Acid Wash” at NPR.

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper is out 1/13 on Domino.
