Gold Panda “Lucky Shiner” (music review)

Sep 13 2021

Just a quick review of Gold Panda‘s new full length album “Lucky Shiner“…

“Lucky Shiner” straddles the line between moody downtempo and quiet-banger minimal techno with dash of glitchy idm thrown in here and there. Take the raw energy of Crystal Castles, minus the hipster irony and give it half a valium. Mix in a bit of Fuck Buttons repetitive marching drone, and then bring it up to a low boil using a minimal electronic stove top. While it’s simmering add a bit of spicing using Blockhead’s ethnic funk and contrast that with a dash of Autechre’s sheared beats. Finally bake it using Lemon Jelly’s infectious positive energy.

I love it you may not. I suggest you buy it direct from Ghostly International as you get an extra bonus track from them
