Having suitably impressed with his latest full-length Good Luck and Do Your Best (our review here), big-on-Japan electronica maestro Gold Panda, aka Derwin Schlecker, has shared a new EP and you can stream it right here. Kingdom, coming just a few months since the release of Schlecker’s fourth LP , is made up of five entirely new tracks and has a poignant political undercurrent to it.
In a press release, Gold Panda says that the EP “was made after talking to a neighbour who moved his family from Afghanistan to the UK. He ordered a phone off Amazon so he could call home, but the delivery driver signed for it and kept it. I thought this was a pretty shitty welcome. I made a couple of less happy songs that are very very loosely based around that and my brexit fears, which were sadly confirmed”
The compilation is currently only available on his bandcamp page, although the CD version will also be available on tour.
