[Album] Palms- Palms
« on: June 25, 2013, 10:46:43 AM »
Clever album title huh? Anyway, this band is made up of members of the band Isis and fronted by Chino Moreno of Deftones. As expected from members of Isis, the songs are mellow wandering soundscapes, and Chino's vocals are a perfect match. Even the longer and more meandering songs on this album (one at 9 something minutes the other at an even 10 minutes) have enough variation within themselves to keep you interested. The album only has 6 songs but manages to clock in at around 46 minutes...and to me every single one of them is enjoyable. Chino's vocals are bit more restrained here than on the last Deftone's release Koi No Yokan, but he manages to effectively croon out the lyrics and blend his voice with whats going on instrumentally behind him, adding yet another layer to the sonic landscape. He varies between an erotic whisper/croon and haunting wails, often in the same song thanks to the length of the songs and the twists and turns they make.

9/10 wood slam muff to this album, also if I still burned big dusty nugs...would do that to this album too.

Five Finger is awful...I don't understand how they are still a thing...don't expect Deftones level of heaviness from Palms...but fuck...with Chino's voice they could be playing fucking Mariachi music and I probably wouldn't care.

I've been waiting for this forever.

Word is Chino has a couple other projects, including recording the shelved Eros album (last of Chi's material) and bringing back Team Sleep.

He said they unshelved the Eros demos...but that they really didn't want to revisit their material from 5 years ago right now or something. I dunno...I really want to hear that album but I also loved Diamond Eyes. Team Sleep is awesome though...

I loved Koi as well. In fact, I love all his material other than half of Saturday Night Wrists. I even like Crosses.

I like every album but Adrenaline honestly...there are a few songs here and there that I don't enjoy, but none of the albums have enough terrible songs to make me dislike any of the post-Adrenaline stuff.

For the most part I like Adrenaline. It is more nu-metal than everything after but I like some nu-metal.

I just can't get in to it. I love the SHIT out of Around The Fur, and it's still pretty nu-metalish.
