Berlin-based Italian musician, graphic artist and dj Zelda Panda writes utterly charming tunes
about travelling, life in the city and love. Using an old Italian 60s guitar, a loop-pedal and a toykeyboard she works her unique lo-fi magic. Zelda is a very productive listener who draws upon a
vast body of music for inspiration - among other things country, jazz, 80s pop and old italian
crooner-classics - as well as literature, film and her many personal observations.
This cd is one packed disc - part new stuff, part retrospective. A veritable “best of” collection of
selected material from everything recorded so far. It shows Zelda Panda’s journey from the very
beginning in 2003 to 2006. The album shows her working on her own and with various friends as collaborators.
"Comes on like a solo coffee house Stereo Total."
- American WFMU Radio.
"I see Panda as one of the most promising female artists working with electronics. In large part because she breaks down several forms of habitual thinking. (...) Even though you could call her narative miniatures 'electroclash' she is just as much a rock musicians (out of the punk school) and storyteller. (...) There's no excuse not to discover this totally unique and very promising artist right now."
- "Recommended album", Geiger, Danish independent music magazine.
"The record's best moments leads the thoughts towards the clattering indietronica of Casiotone For Painfully Alone. This is especially caused by her fine lyrics about life's, and especially love's, ups and downs."
- Gaffa, Denmark's biggest music magazine.
"In reality you don't really need more than an Italian 60s guitar, a loop-pedal and a toy keyboard. Definitely not if you have Zelda Panda's musicality. (...) She calls herself Marzipan Marzipan. And it is also the title of her new outstanding album. It's an album that seems inspired by Berlin's chilly sensuous and cool lyrical do-it-yourself songwriter style of artists such as Masha Qrella and Barbara Morgenstern. But as Marzipan Marzipan Zelda Panda has her very own personal and quite sensual twist."
- Ralf Christensen, P2 Radium, Danish National Radio.
