Pitchfork

He's making nostalgia work for him without consuming him.

Drowned in Sound

Whatever angle you examine it from, Lucky Shiner is an impressive statement, especially for a debut, and when Gold Panda lets the house beat sink into the background and experiments a little more with space and structure the results are gorgeous.

Most importantly, Dervin's work as Earth-spanning sample librarian helps avoid the hobgoblin of lesser producers: sameness.

This is just great to chill to. Laying in bed at night and just thinking, or just chilling with friends with this on in the background, never gets old.
