Gold Panda wowed me back in 2010 when he released his debut album Lucky Shiner. He wowed me again earlier this year with the Trust EP. I'm ready to be wowed again. Gold Panda will release his sophomore album Half of Where You Live on June 11th, and "Brazil" is our first taste.
The LP takes inspiration from experiences in Sao Paulo and London as well as Takashi Miike films. As for "Brazil," it's pretty impressive. Enticing, exotic instrumentation loops around the repeating words "Brazil," with the synthesized sounds building and fading effortlessly. I'm down for this. Check it out below.
