It is really nice that Gold Panda is wearing a wild animal shirt. Think it's a white tiger. Dude is out there in the musical woods, everything sounds like a chase scene in a Julianne Moore movie, heavy, but with freckles. Can electronic music be emo? He doesn't look too lonely up there, in front of the Spinner crowd, tall guy bouncing a bedroom mirror bounce. This live performance is essentially a live mix of his songs, and it's really, really nice when "You" comes in, chopped up more, a stutterers dream. Gold Panda's Lucky Shiner is one of the most inventive records we have heard this year, kitchen sink goulash of diamond sounds and conveyor belts made of gold.
