Gold Panda - Half Of Where You Live CD
Half Of Where You Live is the second LP from Gold Panda, released on his own label NOTOWN in the UK.
Half Of Where You Live comes almost three years on since he burst into public consciousness with the glitchy brilliance of the Lucky Shiner LP. Those three years seem a long time and yet, paradoxically, tracks like You and Snow & Taxis still sound as buoyantly fresh as they ever did upon their inception back in 2010. That’s signatory of Gold Panda though, a producer who absorbs, cultivates and warps so many influences both old and new, so that his tracks spread across eras, rendering such timespans obsolete and transcending any sense of fashion even in the accelerated world of electronic music. For him, new album Half Of Where You Live bears the marks of time on the road and all the perception-altering, personality-defining experiences that have inevitably come his way.
