The good people at Ghostly tell us that Gold Panda would like to express their intention to not make beats but songs, with a more or less classic structure, without any desire to tear up the dancefloor. And that is exactly what Derwin Panda has done on “ Lucky Shiner ”, a debut album that’s difficult to label and is clearly looking for a place of its own. Strange electronic songs drenched in the pastoral spirit of the English countryside, and which are turn in the shadows of ancestral Japanese culture. The record, recorded at home in two sessions in rural Essex and afterwards mixed by James Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco, will be released on 12th October on Ghostly International.
