Amoeba Review

06/24/2013

Close your eyes and let Palms’ debut record take you away. The post-rock, metalgaze group consists of most of the members of defunct group Isis plus Deftones lead singer Chino Moreno, presenting a sort of fusing of those group’s sensibilities. You have the glacial metallic movements of Isis, full of guitars that shred and glimmer over marathon songs with names like “Patagonia,” while Moreno’s hardcore Robert Smith howl calls into the wild. Palms is by no means monochromatic; “Mission Sunset” sees the band soften and expand for music that evokes seaside grandeur while Moreno goes high and breathy like Billy Corgan circa Siamese Dream, and “Tropics” is as dreamy as Slowdive. Along with the new Deafheaven record, heavy rock fans who’ve grown out of their old sounds or who are looking to expand their palette now have two terrific records to feast on, and Isis fans have an awesome new band to follow in the wake of Isis’ departure. Palms is a scenic wonder of a record.
