Review // Gold Panda – Half Of Where You Live

Gold Panda

NOTOWN  // June 10th

It’s strange to think that it’s been four years since ‘Quitter’s Raga’ entered our consciousness, but here we are with Derwin’s second LP and follow-up to the addictive ‘Lucky Shiner’. It’s a less direct sound than his previous effort, and shares similarities with the ‘Trust’ EP released earlier this year. On Lucky Shiner there was a definite theme throughout, but on ‘Half Of Where You Live’ he confidently experiments and explores new methods and approaches, much to our delight. With this, the record never lets itself feel tired nor repetitive and remains truly arresting throughout.
