They’re visiting Aus for the very first time this December and pairing up for three impossibly fun shows. Check out Darlins here, JEFF here, and grab your tickets here. If you love a rocking live show, this is one not to miss!

Gold Panda’s ‘Lucky Shiner’ out today! October 1st 2010 By brooke

Gold Panda’s ‘Lucky Shiner’ out today!

They’re calling it ‘frelectro’ – friendly electro that just feels like summer. Lucky Shiner is the debut record from London’s Gold Panda, an electro producer who carved his name remixing everyone from HEALTH to The Field, though incidentally sounds neither like the former or the latter. You can have your own taste at http://soundcloud.com/gold-panda and as of today, it can be yours both digitally and through your trusty record store. Here’s hoping we can get him over here for our own summer fun, and in the meantime, see the clip for ‘Snow & Taxis’ premiering tonight on Rage. Snow And Taxis from Gold Panda on Vimeo.
