Summer is basically upon us, well at least it is here, but I’ve been wondering what sort of albums will act as the soundtrack for the days where the sun actually manages to show itself. Beyond more obvious contenders like the new Scale The Summit effort and the latest Coheed And Cambria album, I’m putting my money on the upcoming debut from Palms, which, if somehow you’ve managed to avoid this fact thus far, is comprised of members of both Deftones and Isis and creates some of the most lush and beautiful post-rock you’ll hear all year.
The band have been teasing material for a long time now, but most recently debuted the album opener on the Radio 1 over here in the UK. It didn’t take long for it to get uploaded to internet thankfully, so you can listen to it below:
Honestly, I wasn’t hugely sold on the sound the first time I heard them, but every time the band come out with something new, I find myself enjoying it more and more. We really don’t have much longer to wait either, with the album set for release through Ipecac Records on the 25th of June.
