Palm (+ the good lonely & Barbara Shop)
Music House // Friday 9:30PM
Palm plays music unlike anything you’ve heard before. A first listener might notice their disregard for respecting expectations. One second you might think you’re listening to a relaxed Beach Boys song, but then it breaks into something that feels like music from another planet. Formed in Bard College, they all learned their instruments specifically for this band - the result is anything but conventional - what they call “rock music backwards.” Pretty melodies sit atop interesting, unusual instrumentations - at times jarring rhythmic sections that are constructed intricately with choppy guitars and steel drum effects. It keeps you from staying comfortable for too long and keeps you wanting more. It’s this distinct sound that makes them truly unique and their sound one that’s currently pushing indie music forward. They’re especially known for their transcending live show; the sound achieved with their lineup of only four is baffling - two guitars miraculously create massive electronic soundscapes. Palm has received a lot of praise and hype in the last year for their fantastic new album Rock Island - tons of press on NPR, and so many awesome live sets.
For a limited time only! Don't miss the Good Lonely!!
