Gold Panda – Lucky Shiner

One of the most innovative and mind-melding albums

Named after his Grandmother, ‘Lucky Shiner’ is Gold Panda’s debut album and one of the warmest and most vibrant electronic debuts of the year. Panda caresses a truly eclectic blend of influences and disparate sounds, including eastern instrumentation and large swathes of noise, to create a unique spirit of adventure and individuality – truly embossing a sense of personality and warmth onto cold static patterns. Mixed by Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford, ‘Lucky Shiner’ is one of the most innovative and mind-melding albums of the year and one that just keeps on giving.
