Palmbomen II – Palmbomen II

“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.

It’s hot outside (if you’re livin it up in the UK), everyone’s a little tetchy, maybe time to take a break from the pumpin’ house? Go on then, just for one post:

Gwilym Gold, last seen by HD thrashing around at The Macbeth fronting up The Golden Silvers, has sashayed his way through a White Cube residency with visual artist Eddie Peake and emerged out the other end with low-fi ballad, ‘Muscle’. The first release on Eddie’s new ‘Hymn’ label, it comes with the above remix by Beam. This enigmatic (i.e. no RA profile) producer has injected just the right amount of percussion and uplift to calm the most hot and bothered of listeners.
