New Gold Panda – “Mountain” & “Financial District”

The fantastically whimsical UK-based Gold Panda has graced us with a brand new single called “Mountain,” backed with a great track titled “Financial District.” These two tracks include familiar elements from previous Gold Panda material, such as Middle Eastern and Asian-influenced instruments and samples, paired with noisy percussion and head-bobbing beats. At about two and a half minutes in, “Mountain” morphs almost entirely from an ethereal, low-key musing to a full-on glitchy celebration. The B-side, “Financial District,” balances upon warped horns and chopped-up vocal samples, sounding like something shiny swimming around at the bottom of the ocean. Listen below.
