“Somewhere between drugged and extremely hungover” is how Pitchfork describe Palmbomen II’s self-titled album, just released on Tim Sweeney’s podcast turned label Beats in Space Records. It’s pretty much spot on:
Palmbomen II is the second such alias of Holland-born producer Kai Hugo, this one said to embody the hermetical nature of the recording process, all done in his mother’s attic. All the tracks are named after bit-part X-Files characters too so you can imagine the vibe he was on. All that’s just bumpf though, the tunes are high quality low-fi electronica and well worth a listen.
