Gold Panda had so much blog hype last year that I actually avoided listening to it for a while. Sometimes the overwhelming words of praise scare me away and I prefer to wait and listen, even if I’m a little late to the party.
Well, guess what – the UK producer and his debut full-length “Lucky Shiner” were totally deserving of all the attention.
DJ Mario Cotto did a great job of explaining why, so I won’t repeat it, but I will encourage you to listen to the album’s 3rd single “Marriage,” as well as remixes by Baths and more.
Gold Panda’s upcoming tour dates include a stop in SXSW, as well as a show at the Troubadour in LA on March 27. Mark your calendars!
