Shape-shifting Portland duo Panther are releasing the limited-edition Entropy 12″ at the end of the month. Technically it follows last year’s 14kt God, but as you might’ve gathered by “Love Is Sold,” Charles Salas-Humara and Joe Kelly are pushing their sounds in a different, more free-and-easy direction. In the Kari Coleman-video for the big-hooked “Birds That Move” they perform as an occasional quartet on a float flanked by synchronized swimmers until someone gets hold of a gun and the guys return to their natural state to don corpse paint and attend a friendly bonfire.
Entropy is out 9/29 via Kill Rock Stars in an edition of 500. Pre-orders come with a free “Birds” 12″ EP.
