Palm announces new album “Rock Island” + shares first single

November 1, 2017 11:39 am

On Rock Island, their second LP, Palm produces evidence of a distinct musical language, developed over time, in isolation, and out of necessity. On the island, melodies are struck on what might be shells or spines. Rhythms are scratched out, swept over, scratched again. Individual instruments, and sometimes entire sections, skip and stutter. There is the sense of a music box with wonky tension or a warped transmission in which all the noise is taken for signal.

Very hyped to announce that Palm’s new album, Rock Island, is due out February 9th. The band has given us a taste of their new progression with “Pearly,” the first track from the LP. Head over to the Fader to check it out.

Pre-order the album today and receive “Pearly” instantly. A limited-edition LP (500 copies) includes light-blue vinyl and a digital download card, available on the Carpark shop! Bundle any physical format with a Rock Island long-sleeve shirt. The record is also available digitally on iTunes and for pre-save on Spotify.

Along with the news, Palm has released a trippy visualizer for the
magnetic first single.

See the band on the road this fall! Tix available here.

MADEIRA shares Flight Facilities cover

October 16, 2017 1:03 pm

MADEIRA just unveiled her cover of Flight Facilities’ “Crave You.” Check out the premiere via GoldFlakePaint: “It’s every bit as bright and captivating as we’ve come to expect.”

Kim Pflaum on the track:
I’ve been a Flight Facilities fan for a long while, and was lucky enough to see them last year while at Austin City Limits. There’s something really special about their music that transports you to another time and place. When I listen to their music I always get the feeling I’m on holiday in Italy or Switzerland, driving through the alps in a classic car past pristine lakes and world class vistas. So it’s only natural that I’d want to cover one of their songs to try be a part of that. This track really speaks too me, the longing and unrequited love (well that’s how I read it) are topics that I feel are sort of my speciality! It reminds me of a great track by sixties group The Honeys ‘The One You Can’t Have (is the one that you want the most)’, that feeling of not being able to make it work with the person you really want to. I approached Alistair from Boycrush to work on the track with me and really happy with what we’ve come up with together! I love the almost MJ style baseline. I think it really suits this version. I hope you all like it too.

++ Catch her in London this Thursday, October 19th! More details here.

Evan Gipson joins Carpark, releases “The Music of Morphite”

October 11, 2017 10:29 am

Today, Carpark Records is proud to release Evan Gipson’s, The Music of Morphite, the soundtrack for Marumari‘s latest video game, Morphite.

Morphite is an atmospheric Sci-Fi adventure in a stylized universe. The video game (iOS, Xbox 1, PC Steam, PS4) was written and created by Josh Presseisen (of Marumari fame) and players can journey to distant planets in hopes of discovering new animals and plants, while finding the secrets of Myrah Kale’s past. Presseisen enlisted Evan Gipson to compose the soundtrack for the game. Gipson has been composing music for Presseisen’s Crescent Moon Games, which include titles such as Mines of Mars, Hammer Bomb, and Sparkwave. This time Gipson brings us a massive and epic soundtrack, filled with desolate tones and energized synthesizers, the perfect fit for space exploration. The soundtrack release for Morphite includes over 50 tracks by Gipson and a special guest appearance by Marumari on remix duties after a long absence from the music scene.

“When I’m Lonely” music video

October 10, 2017 11:09 am

Introverted Dancefloor is back with a brand new song, “When I’m Lonely,” paired with a new music video.

Bevan Smith (Introverted Dancefloor) on the video:
“For this video, Rowan Pierce (the director) and I wanted to use dance to represent a person being overwhelmed by loneliness and crushed by the weight of the world. Something light and breezy. We wanted it capture the attention of the viewer, but also be very minimal, voyeuristic and creepy.

In essence, it is a study of a dancer’s body in motion. We worked with Kosta Bogoievski to develop the concept. We started from a place of stillness and built up to repetitive movements to represent Kosta being compressed by immense weight. When filming, Rowan focused on the details of his body in motion to show muscles and skin through a plain and objective lens.”

“When I’m Lonely” is available now on the Carpark shop, iTunes, Apple Music, and Spotify!
