In all honesty, I had never heard of The White Panda before this week. I decided to check them out when SPA announced that they would be playing a show here at Penn State with Asher Roth. I hopped on Spotify and began listening to their albums and I instantly knew I had struck gold (Thank you SPA!). After the addition of several White Panda tracks to my party jams playlist, I can officially say that I am a fan. I mean, who doesn’t love a good mash-up, am I right or am I right?
“Midnight Life” has got to be my favorite White Panda song. The duo combined the New Wave, electronic pop song “Midnight City” by M83 (which was featured on one of Victoria’s Secret’s commercials last year), and Kanye West’s rhymes from “Good Life” to create this killer jam that’s absolutely genius if you ask me. For those of you who are still skeptical, just take a listen and enjoy the ride.
If you like what you hear, be sure to come out to the White Panda and Asher Roth show in the Hub’s Alumni Hall on December 7th at 10 PM. It’s free, and everyone loves free shit, so we hope to see you there!
