Fearless, wild, weird and wonderful, Philly four-piece Palm has a new record out today called Shadow Expert. It’s a collection of candy-coated dissonance, six songs of mind-bendy arrangements and interlocking instrumental complexity that stand alongside inviting tones and playful melodies, the sweetest shreddery you’ll ever hear.

As a live band, Palm is no joke — of course they’re not, being able to make records like this means being actually able to play music like this — and we heard that firsthand a couple weeks ago when it performed in XPN studios for a joint session with The Key and the Indie Rock Hit Parade. 

Today, we’re psyched to bring you a video from that session for “Walkie Talkie,” a spunky two-minutes-and-change jammer that has one foot firmly in Deerhoof territory and the other reaching for Stereolab.

Watch the video below, read our review of Shadow Expert here and order the EP from Carpark Records here. Palm plays PhilaMOCA on Friday, June 23rd with Palberta; tickets and more information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
