Listen to Gold Panda's Second LP for Ghostly
It has been almost three years since Gold Panda's solid debut, Lucky Shiner, was released—time which has seen him expand his sonic pallette tremendously from his early bouts of starry-eyed boom-bap. Following the producer's unveiling of the genre-hopping "Brazil" single in April, the entirety of his sophomore album, Half of Where You Live, is now available to stream in full. Half of Where you Live was born out of Gold Panda's recent move from his hometown of Essex to Berlin, and takes a more world-weary stance in both production and inspiration than his previous work. (The LP's original announcement conceded that the album was designed as "city music.") Half of Where You Live is due on June 11 via Ghostly and Notown, but the full effort is streaming here, courtesy of NPR.
