Painted Palms’ second full-length album Horizons is out now via Polyvinyl. This week the album track “Refractor” gets remixed by Lexington, Kentucky-based producer Ellie Herring. You can stream the track below via Soundcloud.
San Francisco music festival Noise Pop 2016 has been announced, and Painted Palms are among the lineup. The band is scheduled to play Rickshaw Stop on February 26 with GEMS. Headliners of the festival include The Mountain Goats, Parquet Courts, Kamasi Washington, Vince Staples and more. Full lineup here.
Though vocalist Chris Prudhomme and producer Reese Donohue chose to collaborate on their second full-length by sending song ideas back and forth over e-mail, just as they did when crafting their 2014 debut Forever, Horizons marks the first time the duo has expanded their sound beyond the bedroom by stepping into the studio.
Mixed by former DFA house engineer Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, Classixx), Horizons engages with a diverse sonic palette on each track: ’60s psych-pop, ’80s synths, hypnotic vibes of the kind induced by Bjork and early ’90s Creation Records bands, and the trunk-rattling minimalism of Southern hip-hop.
