Wild Palms – Summer Dates
aaamusic | On 20, Jul 2010
Forward-thinkers Wild Palms have been busy in the studio with Gareth Jones (Grizzly Bear, Clinic, Interpol, Wire, Depeche Mode) working on their debut album, slated for a new year release, with a single slated for September release.
Speaking to NME earlier this year, singer Lou Hill signalled the shape of things to come, “The stuff we are writing now is a complete departure from anything scratchy or angular – it’s warm and it’s expansive.” Saluting Can, New FADs, Beefheart, ACR, Sonic Youth, TV On The Radio, Radiohead, MBV, Liquid Liquid, New Order & Talking Heads, Wild Palms continue an ethos that runs through from Neu! to Factory to Flowered Up, carrying with them a rough-edged charm that in no small part comes from roguishly charismatic 23 year old front man and garage MC, Lou Hill.
