New Music Video: "Shadow Expert" - Palm

Palm explore a second life as digital avatars in the music video for “Shadow Expert,” the title track of their latest EP, released via Carpark Records. Friends of the band, JP Mayer and Valentina Tapia, produced the video, which features the band’s members waking up in a jaunty, iridescent world of shapeshifting animals and pulsating structures. Much like Jerry Paper’s music video for “Real. Now. Love.”, Palm’s “Shadow Expert” toys with the impartiality and limitations of ironic digital design, while producing in effect a thoughtful and dynamic visual experience that comes in at around the three minute mark. The quartet is currently on tour with Palberta through the end of July, and also will be embarking on a European tour in September.





New Palm EP Available for Streaming

Ahead of its official release this Friday, June 16 via Carpark Records, Shadow Expert, the new EP from Palm, is available to stream in its entirety below. Juxtaposing the relative calm of the vocals with the directional cuts of experimental instrumentation, the quartet creates a dueling but symbiotic relationship. Contrasting those levitating lyrics with lightning-like jolts, Palm doesn’t sit still for too long in a sound akin to Dirty Projectors, Battles, or locals Banned Books. You can catch them at PhilaMOCA on Saturday, June 24, with Palberta and Suffer Dragon. (Photo by Brian Garbrecht)





New Track: "Shadow Expert" - Palm

Palm is slated to release a new EP Shadow Expert courtesy of Carpark Records on June 16. With its second single and title track, the quartet is anchored in a linear march forward of percussion and bass. The dual-threaded guitar playfully circles and swoops as tranquil vocals command, “I don’t wanna go.” Palm will be performing along with Palberta on SaturdayJune 24 at PhilaMOCA

Pile to play Great Scott 11/17

Listening to Pile is kind of like being in the eye of a storm--there are brief moments of calm, punctuated by the cacophony of the hurricane hurling around you. A lot of what makes the band so engaging to listen to is that while they certainly deliver the head-nod worthy riffs of an indie rock band, they're also explosive and driving--constantly pushing the limits of simple song structures and edging toward blanketing the listener in total noise. The result is an unpredictable sonic experience with expert dynamic play, and gleaming, textbook examples of bridled chaos. If the sky ever cracks open, this may be your soundtrack to the end of the world. Check out Pile 11/17 at Great Scott with Palm and Dust from 1000 Years, and listen to them streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

 





Last Littler Philly Show (For Now) at Everybody Hits July 23

The lifespan of an indie band is often short-lived in these modern times, and the Philly DIY scene is bracing itself for another little heartbreak, as half the members of four-piece Littler prepare to move across the country. It hurts to see them go, especially as they were starting to receive a bit of national attention. Their bubbly brand of Slumberland-soaked twee-punk and emotion sheathed in prickly fuzz will be sorely missed, and I'll be keeping an eye to the western horizon in hopes of their return. The band's last booked show in Philly will be held tonight at Everybody Hits, with a host of avant acts that will add an interesting contrast to Littler’s unabashed pop devotion. Ursula, a recent transplant to Philadelphia and self-proclaimed no-wave band, will open the night with songs that know structure but no tune. Their decidedly unmelodious, repetitive riffs and harsh vocals hang in tattered shreds from steady, plodding beats, seemingly the only orienting component of the music. Palm, another local favorite, will also be performing their incredibly nuanced, arcane, avant-math-pop, which treads the seam between melody and dissonance, while covering more compositional ground within a single song than many bands cover in an entire album.
