Wild Palms

WILD PALMS are the one band who’ve made me get off my arse and actually leave the house this year.

I know I don’t get out much these days, but I can’t remember the last time I was so taken with a new act and, despite a rather lacklustre audience, the London-based quartet played a terrific set at the Double magazine party at Islington Mill in Salford last week. It was the fifth time they have appeared in Manchester, so I’m not exactly what you’d call an early adopter, but I thought they were great.

Listen out for their new single Deep Dive on One Little Indian.  More info here. And watch an exclusive interview with the band after the jump ..

    You might find this interesting.

    We refer to it as “Analog Music from a Lost World” — previously unreleased post-punk experimental rock from 1981, unlike anything else recorded before or after.

    “Here’s something lovely and odd from the Free Music Archive: the Karen Cooper Complex.” — No Rock and Roll Fun.com

    “…some hefty grooves, and plenty of ‘holy shit” moments’. It’s a spacious but highly rewarding listen, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some label makes an effort to press this on vinyl in the near future.” — ongakubaka.blogspot.com

    “This is amazing stuff and we would be honored to feature it in wfmu’s curated portal on the free music archive. I’m very sorry for our slow response, we have a lot of stuff to wade through to find gems like these.”

  2. Kinda crazy but I kinda like it, I have to say. Will download and have a proper listen over the weekend. My missus is going to love you for pointing me in the direction of this stuff blxl.

    Thanks for stopping by and brightening up / weirding out my life.
