The EP contains three new tracks: “No Mans Land”, “Cosplay”, and “Jabberwocky”, as well as a new version of “Crosswords”, originally from Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaperand “The Preakness”, a bonus cut off of 2012’s Tomboy.

According to a press release, “The EP explores Noah Lennox’s alchemical use of earthy base elements and life affirming ‘reports from the front’ to conjure up his trademark transports to the Goldilocks zone and comes appropriately enveloped in eye-popping fashion with artwork by Swiss artist Marco Papiro and with custom type-faces by Black Dice’s Bjorn Copeland.”
