PALM

(Philadelphia, PA)
Genre: Indie Rock

Palm plays rock music backwards. Eve Alpert and Kasra Kurt’s guitars occupy themselves most often with the pace-keeping work typical of a rhythm section. Meanwhile, Gerasimos Livitsanos’ bass and Hugo Stanley’s drums perform commentary and reportage from their deeply embedded positions at the front. The band is firmly attached to the physicality of rock, but not as much its tone; their instruments with the jagged quality of Glenn Branca, The Fall, Beefheart, and Sonic Youth.”
