“No Show” music video

November 16, 2017 12:11 pm

“This song is about how patterns can change.”

The Fader just premiered the latest music video from Toro y Moi. “No Show” is taken from Toro’s new record, Boo Boo, available everywhere: Carpark shopiTunesAmazonApple MusicSpotify.

“The mystical karaoke video vibe of ‘Girl Like You’ meets the delicate portraiture of ‘You and I,’ all observed from within what looks like a primitive digital editing platform. It reads as low stakes, but that doesn’t mean it’s not also revealing in some way.” – The Fader

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.
