“Fixina” and “The Sting” music videos

December 4, 2017 11:01 am

Sad13 just shared, not one, but two new videos for tracks taken from her 2016 release, Slugger. Head over to YouTube and check out “Fixina” + “The Sting.”

“Our goal was to shoot a double feature, with videos by Grimes and Melanie Martinez as our inspiration. Zoloo and Vrinda came up with the concept that I’d play a monster in one video, and a monster hunter in the other–the two most sympathetic character types in fiction, in my opinion. We shot on a freezing cold roof, on a lake in a snowstorm, bribed some Elmos to hang out, and of course we gave both the monster and the monster hunter plenty of glittery looks.” – Sadie Dupuis

“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.
