Panda Bear 'Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper' (album trailer)
Panda Bear's new album Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper isn't strictly Halloween-themed, but the title certainly has some spooky implications. Now, the Animal Collective member has unveiled an exceptionally sinister album trailer.

In the clip, we see a figure in a cloak and skeletal face paint cradling — appropriately enough — a stuffed panda bear and making a throat-slitting gesture. The visuals then go haywire with an assault of flashing colours and squalling synths, and the album title and release date flash up on the screen.

Check it out at Panda's website.

Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper is due out on January 13 through Domino.
