The Animal Collective man released his fifth solo album, Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, this week. Before he did, he sat down with Joe Clay to pick 13 formative favourite records


Black Dice - Creature Comforts
They took us on our first tour and they've released stuff for our label, Paw Tracks. This album for DFA was the first time they became what they are now. They stopped working with a drummer and it became more of a strictly electronic entity. That was a real inspiration for what I do now... y'know, having a table on stage and a bunch of gear. They've been hugely influential for me in terms of trying to reach for stuff, and find new sounds and explore sound.... trying to take yourself to new places. Watching them do that over and over again has been a massive inspiration.
