Gold Panda was kind enough to sign a few copies for us.
A culmination of years of work spent refining his sui generis sound, Gold Panda's eagerly awaited debut album is finally here. An artist at ease traversing genre boundaries in search of new auditory frontiers - whether mixing dissected hip hop beats or the pulsating flourishes of minimal techno - this apropos release will cement the foundations laid by previous output and visions whilst expanding his canon to unparalleled limits. As electronic music gradually arcs into a period of unprecedented successes, "Lucky Shiner" pits GP firmly at the forefront of a new wave of artists unafraid to challenge preconceptions of what music can be.
"Lucky Shiner"'s the piece that completes the picture. Originating in crystal clear vision, the nuance and frenetic cadence of life and the mind's constant disequilibrium means its final realisation stands as a product that'll provoke thought as much as enjoyment; pathos as much as praise. 'Lots of factors affected the way it came together.' Gold Panda explains, 'touring, mixing, moving house and splitting with a girlfriend. Family, friends and lovers related, places I've never been."You", "Parents" (featuring a field recording of GP helping his grandma push a wheelbarrow in the garden), "Marriage". Lucky Shiner overflows with life. Disengaging with the need for vocal, GP intimates, makes intimate idea's immeasurably expressive and does so whilst always retaining an unfettered ear for melody. 'I didn't want to write 'beats'' he says about the album, 'I didn't want bangers. I wanted songs with structure.'
