Gold Panda Release EP Compilation

Before releasing his acclaimed debut Lucky Shiner, Gold Panda assembled a series of EP’s on Make Mine Records (UK), Avex Records (Japan) and his own Notorious Records.

Now these rare EP’s have been assembled into one package, called Companion. The album came out this week on Ghostly International Records. You can get it wherever records can be found.

What’s more, Gold Panda was recently the subject of a brief documentary by film-maker Shai Levy. In it, the artist opens up about touring and the lonely road. Speaking of touring, Gold Panda has a new North American Tour. You can catch the dates right below the video.
