Song Spotlight: Lykke Li x Gold Panda

Everyone, freak out. At least that’s what I did at 6AM when I saw the tweets trickle in about Gold Panda‘s remix of “Sadness is a Blessing” by Lykke Li.

I clicked, I listened, I fawned. And now, I’m here to break my unintentional Autostraddle hiatus to share it with you.

Lykke Li – Sadness Is A Blessing (Gold Panda Remix) by Pretty Much Amazing

Gold Panda is a talented British producer whose debut album, Lucky Shiner, topped my listen of Favorite Albums of 2010. Add his organic, mellow dance touch to Swedish indie-singer Lykke Li’s ironically upbeat downer from her new album, Wounded Rhymes, and the result is one of my favorite remixes of 2011.


Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th! We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?
