    New John Roberts remix of "Chiba Nights"

    Aug 18, 2016

    Gold Panda has just unveiled a  new John Roberts reworking of standout 'Good Luck And Do Your Best' track "Chiba Nights"

    "I'm a big fan of John Roberts' work and I have nearly all of his releases so I was very flattered to hear he liked GLADYB and agreed to do a remix. The remix uses a similar sound palette to his new album "Plum" which was just released on his own label Brunette Editions and I highly recommend. It was nice to chat to him and find out that we share a fondness for Japan and the Akai MPC2000." - Gold Panda

     

    Gold Panda will be on tour right through to November - all tourdates and details in our tourdates section

    New Album 'FLOTUS' Out This November

    Aug 9, 2016

    It's official - brand new Lambchop material is coming your way this November, and it's like nothing you've ever heard from them before. Their first full length since 2011 will be called FLOTUS (For Love Often Turns Us Still), and you can listen to the beautiful and epic 18-minute first cut “The Hustle” for the first time right here:

     

     

    "My wife and I attended this wedding of one her college friends in the countryside outside of Nashville. Weddings are a heady mix of emotions, memories, and events that can be quite rich in imagery. With this being a Quaker wedding, there was a lack of “officiating” in that the bride and groom addressed each other directly the entire time. This was something that I found to be most touching. Beyond that, as with much of my writing, I tend to describe experiences in an almost journalistic fashion and then strip things down till there is barely a thread to hold them together—in this case, starting with the vows and then moving on from there. The entire wedding party was doing this great synchronized dance step that I hadn’t seen before. I asked my wife what dance it was, and she told me it was the Hustle. She suggested I join them. I respectfully declined." - Kurt Wagner

Primitives

SLANG50113LP | SLANG50113

Roger Sellers is a lot of things. He’s a minimalist composer with a knack for making hypnotic, enveloping songs from a few repeated musical phrases. He’s a gifted musician who is mostly self-taught, having abandoned formal study because it was draining the life from his work. He’s a self-described disciple of Phil Collins. What he is not, however — despite multiple press reports to the  […] READ ON

Good Luck And Do Your Best

SLANG50099LP

The story of Gold Panda’s journey from an acclaimed debut record to now, as he prepares to release his third full length album, is an entirely circular one. Hailing from Chelmsford Essex in the UK, in the six years since the release of his genre-defining debut album ‘Lucky Shiner’, the electronic artist most comfortable with the moniker Derwin Panda spent the subsequent years splitting  […] READ ON

The band’s debut album is intent on dismantling the ideas western listeners have about popularized Tuareg music. This new wave of Tuareg musicians sound very different to the desert distortion that accompanies groups like Mdou Moctar or Group Inerane. Instead, it finds a calm and passionate soul, provides sumptuous slow burners, and a complexity of composition that hasn’t been demonstrated  […] READ ON

Says Hi

SLANG50095DEP

“It took me 15 fucking years to feel brave enough to do this!” Joel Wästberg, the Swedish producer behind the eccentric sir Was alias, confesses. “To reach the point where I could let myself do this was a long struggle. But once I felt less scared, it was kind of easy. It just came out, like: ‘This is the sound!’”
