The vinyl-only EP, Animal Collective cofounder Noah Lennox's first solo release in more than two years, arrives in January.
A Day With The Homies will be Lennox's first solo release as Panda Bear since 2015's Crosswords EP, which stemmed from the Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper LP issued earlier that year. It'll come out only on limited-edition vinyl, with an artwork jacket and an inner sleeve with lyrics.
"I hoped to make something without frills or much embellishment, principally because I've found more fluff tends to equal less power," Lennox says in his introduction to the EP. "Since the juiciest action is entirely focused in the deeper zones of the frequency spectrum (at least from where I've sat), power was key." He adds, "The songs aren't lyrically linear or narrative as such, though I did scatter pieces of longer-chewed themes across the tracks."
