We've been fans of Painted Palms since the group first appeared on the local scene a few years ago. Its swirling, vaguely tropical electronica has been steadily evolving since the band's first EP, and today's "Spinning Signs," the first single off upcoming debut album Forever, shows even more development. The song has a decidedly psychedelic feel, with pulsing synths and an almost rock-like beat. It feels kinda like a Beatles song, but more ominous and disjointed and impulsive. In any case, it's good. Take a listen:
Painted Palms' debut album, Forever, is due Jan. 14 on Polyvinyl.
