Earlham Mystics
Waters EP

Waters is a four-track EP from Earlham Mystics. It can only be described as a collection of head-heavy beats and repetitive notes played on a variety of differing electronic instruments. The record feels like it...view item »


Earlham Mystics
Truth EP

Earlham Mystics is the new moniker of Norfolk’s Luke Abbott. Released through Gold Panda’s Notown label, and with three years since his last solo full length, The Truth EP, and indeed the project itself is much more percussion focus, and has a melodious pop centric style to ...view item »

Glitterbug
Dust

Dust is the fourth studio album from German-born Glitterbug. Enthralling ambient electronica drifts in and out of your conscious like dust in the sunlight -- it’s slow moving and all the better for it. Bubbling synths and expansive soundscapes galore. A fitting addition to the Gold Panda label ros...view item »

Dam Mantle and the Free Association
Heavy Velvet Affair

Belting collaboration here between Glasgow people Dam Mantle and the Free Association. One side is taken up with this stealthy locked-down house stormer that seems to go on forever in the best possible way. Plenty of subtle knob-twiddling, pure percussive force, off-set rim-shots and dubbed-out delay make this relentless snake-in-the-gra...view item »

Gold Panda
Quitters Raga

Gold Panda is back with a new 7" featuring not one but two brand new cuts! Now before I get started let's recap some facts we know about Gold Panda. Firstly, his most recent album 'Half of Where You Live' is his best yet; secondly, he has a habit of saving his most immediate tracks for singles and has a line in b...view item »

WANDA GROUP
Outer Alsation EP

Presumably as opposed to inner alsation. Hey people. I want you to close your eyes, breathe deeply and find your inner alsation. You got it? No, no, your inner alsation. Your outer alsation is a series of bristly noise, ladies and gentlemen, cut up radio static, the sound of disembodied voices from late night radio stations. What does it sound l...view item »

Gold Panda
Reprise

Gold Panda is a little worky ticket. He’s not put his name anywhere on this EP and the cover art is different to on the site so I sat through the first track trying to work out what it was and who it was by. Its a bloody good job that I liked it or I’d have been spitting feathers. The opening track is a Fort Romeau mix with s...view item »

Luke Abbott
Object Is A Navigator

Loving this new Luke Abbott 12”, he’s another consummate player in the melodic electronica field that consistently delivers the goods. The title track opens proceedings, this piece being a densely layered fizzing bloop-fest featuring strange...view item »

Gold Panda
Half Of Where You Live

Yup, a certain Mr Panda is back with a second album after wowing you all with his crisp and creative ‘Lucky Shiner’ debut, and this beautifully presented collection has more genre-defying psychedelic techno/house/indie-dance crossover business. Layers of indefinable swells and twinkles rub up ...view item »

Hannes Rasmus
Analog ist Besser

Roughly translating as ‘analogue is better’, this is made in Hamburg, mastered in Leeds, yet sounding like a warm take on Detroit techno. Thats three towns/cities named so far in this review. Heres another...Blackburn. Home to a Pizza Hut and Ewood Park but otherwise nothing to do with this release. The 12” is an antido...view item »

Gold Panda
Trust

I wonder why this 12” plays at 33rpm...and why have they not told anyone? At any point did someone not think that a 33rpm anywhere on the artwork might be useful? Right-o, I’ll re-do the bloody review. I’m obviously such a buffoon that I can’t tell what speed a record is supposed to be at.It now means that the...view item »

Gold Panda
Mountain / Financial District

So here’s Gold Panda’s first new material in ages and it’s...um...okay. Opener ‘Mountains’ is built around a sample of wibbly trumpets over a skittery beat and circles around for about three min...view item »

Luke Abbott
Modern Driveway

Already gets a point for the label name but even without that this is a wonderfully intoxicating brew of honest to goodness electronica that recalls all the best bits of all your favourite twiddling heroes. It has a lovely warm organic sound with stuttery synths and warm electronics....view item »

Gold Panda
Lucky Shiner

Gold Panda's Lucky Shiner feels like it contains every sound in the world. That is not to say it's messy though; these busy electronic soundscapes are riddled with noises, drones, and samples, but they never feel sloppy. Even though some of these songs are retro-inspired, the album never feels dated or pretentious. The problem with Lucky Shiner ...view item »

Gold Panda
You

Glitchy glitchy, everyone's glitchy. I didn't mind this record. It has a bittersweet feel to it, and a slow pulsing beat. You could say it sounds like a slowed down Field, or a less upbeat Animal Collective. It creeps up on you like a mischievous step child, and slowly grabs your attention. Its strangely compelling, and its actually quite ...view item »
