Gold Panda: Companion (2011)
Before Ghostly International released Lucky Shiner last year a put Gold Panda on the music-map of the world, this highly talented young artist (born Derwin Panda) had been honing his skills for some time and, among several 7 inchers, released 3 EP's in 2009. Thanks to Ghostly, now all the three (Quitter's Raga, Mayuri, Before) were re-released under the title Companion. Many folks say that Lucky Shiner is the real deal and no doubt, it's a fine album, but I, for some reason, like the uncut diamonds of these earlier EP's better. Maybe it's those indian / asian samples, I don't know, but I love Companion so much.
