Editorial Reviews

Vinyl LP pressing of this 2010 release including download code. Gold Panda's mix of directness and emotion characterizes Lucky Shiner, an album of beat-driven electronic music that's easy to fall in love with, and to. In Gold Panda's world, vinyl-static beats and heart-on-sleeve melancholia collide, and the results are breathtaking.

Gold Panda's LUCKY SHINER feels like it contains every sound in the world. That's not to say it's messy though; these busy electronic soundscapes are riddled with noises, drones, and samples, but they never feel sloppy. This album travels across the world collecting influences and sounds. Even though some of these songs are retro-inspired, the album never feels dated or pretentious. The problem with LUCKY SHINER is that it's not an album that stays with the listener. These songs, while enjoyable when played (whether at the forefront or background of someone's attention), are really interesting, they don't seem to stick with you. Added with this is the album's lack of coherence as a whole. For these faults though, LUCKY SHINER makes Gold Panda a producer to really watch though.

Fans of Baths, Com Truise, and Animal Collective will probably enjoy LUCKY SHINER. Recommended highlights for sampling: "Snow & Taxi's," "You (the first one)," "Marriage," and "I'm With You buy I'm Lonely" are pretty good places to start.

Ok, let's get this straight. This is some of the weirdest music in existence. But that doesn't mean this isn't good music. It's obviously not the kind of music that very many people will like immediately, but you can really learn to love this. I heard "You" once and there was something about it that made me keep coming back, so I finally decided to buy this. In the end, it was very well worth it. If this is your kind of music, buy it.

first hearing the track "You" after randomly clicking music videos on youtube, I instantly fell in love with the track. Soon discovering that lucky shiner in it's entirety is spectacular, with the beautiful alternate version of "You" and "I'm with you but I'm Lonely" Every track comes in heart breaking beats and soft drums and rain ambience, this Album will not disappoint.

I love Gold Panda! Mainstream music is such a downer these days and Gold Panda is quietly making my life better. He is one of the artists I truly look up to. Calvin Harris, AVICII, Etc... I'm sorry, they just don't do it for me. Obviously it's a different genre, but I think electronic music like this should be more broadly heard.

This has become my go-to album for studying a writing term papers. Something about the rhythm keeps you alert and undistracted. It helped me think creatively. Also check out Half of Where You Live - same effect.
