It’s been a while since I beat you over the head with my love for Panda Bear, and I’m feeling a little guilty for slacking for so long. Since we last checked in with Panda, four (!) new tracks have surfaced, along with Panda Bear Live At ZDB September 2004, a two part digital-only EP, which you can buy at the low-quality, DRM-riddled digital music store of you choice. The new tracks are all brilliant, particularly the Scott Walker-sampling ‘Laughed For A World Filled With Fantasy’. However, the dark, schizophrenic ‘Bonfire Of The Vanities’ is also pretty great. This is a must have for any Panda Bear fans.
