Painted Palms will be heading out with Calgary’s BRAIDS and Pepper Rabbit late this summer. The tour is a bit of a ripper and will see them heading all across North America. Click through below for the dates and don’t forget to order a copy of Painted Palms’ debut 12″, Canopy, HERE.
Cousins Reese Donohue and Christopher Prudhomme are the creative force behind Painted Palms — a duo in the studio that expands to a five-piece band for live shows. The two grew up together on the same block in Lafayette, Louisiana. After Donohue moved to the Bay Area in California for school, they spent several years exchanging music they had made by themselves — hypnotic sound experiments and song fragments. However, it wasn’t until they both returned home for the winter break in 2009, that they began playing music together.
Canopy is the debut EP from duo Painted Palms. With its echoes of Brill Building pop, buoyant electronics, and encompassing textural experimentation, the EP exudes something ebullient as well as meditative. Canopy is a modern psych-pop collage with an affinity for fluidity and the exotic.
Painted Palms were hand picked by of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes to open for them on their North American tour, starting this Friday. You can find the full list of dates HERE.
And on Valentine’s Day, the band brought forth a new video for “I Remember” alongside a free I Remember EP, featuring the album version as well as a remix by Painted Palms and Villa.
Yeasayer will be back on the road beginning in May with the Smith Westerns serving as most of the support.
