Painted Palms Stream Second Album 'Horizons' - Listen
Words: Sam Geary
For San Francisco duo Painted Palms' second album (mixed by former DFA house engineer Eric Broucek -LCD Soundsystem, Classixx) 'Horizons' they have elected on a diverse sonic palette which encompasses 60s psych-pop, 80s synths, and the minimalism of Southern hip-hop - all given a present-day gloss.
Though vocalist Chris Prudhomme and producer Reese Donohue once again collaborated by sending song ideas to each other via e-mail, just as they had done on 2014 debut 'Forever', 'Horizons' marks the first time the duo has taken their sound beyond the bedroom by venturing into the studio.
Stream the album in full below.
'Horizons' is released on September 4 via Polyvinyl.
