Seaside (CA) based Burnt Palms is officially releasing their new album Back On My Wal on 2/5/2016 via We Were Never Being Boring. Today, they are giving you a taste, with a stream, which you can check out via Soundcloud below.
“If the previous record The Girl You Knew thrived on the contrast between the compact sound of the garage guitars and the lightness of singer Riley’s voice (the preferred reference among reviewers has been the Dum Dum Girls), this time the writing shifted–pouring in indie-pop melodies and a predilaction for faster rhythms. The work in its entirety aquires a character of spontaneous vitality and immediacy that closely resembles historical formations of the nineties”.
Their third record Back on my Wall was recorded at Speakeasy Studio in San Francisco, but it’s on the east coast at Marlborough Farms in Brooklyn that it was finalized. Perhaps it’s in this double-character, split between the sunny beaches of California and the urban bustle of the East Coast that lies the secret charm of the album. Part of the credit for this sound probably goes to the engineering work done during the recordings by Gary Olson, founding member of Ladybug Transistor and producer of bands like Crystal Stilts, Hamish Kilgour, Frankie Rose, Jens Lekman, and many more. The band will also be playing SXSW in Austin this year; more details to come.
Back On My Wall will be released 2/5/2016 via Italy/SF based label We Were Never Being Boring.
