Fresh from her visit to Ireland over the weekend, where she played a sold out Tripod show and Tower Records for Record Store Day, this remix of Lykke Li has surfaced. If you haven’t listened to Gold Panda before then this acts as a nice introduction. His mostly instrumental debut album, Lucky Shiner, keeps on growing in my estimation every week and he is over on Irish shores (including Cork’s Savoy) in June. Lykke Li’s original track is all piano, big voice and emotion. But Gold Panda transforms it. He adds his electronica beats beneath the vocal and suddenly things don’t feel so bad. Though it’s still rather sad, obviously. Oh well, can’t have it all.
