Mandatory Music: The Palms Release Groovy New Album ‘Charlie’ Reminding Us of Better Days Ahead

There’s too much noise in the world these days. You long to tune out, but want a soundtrack, rather than silence, while you do just that. Enter Charlie, the groovy new album from The Palms.

The Palms are Johnny Zambetti and Ben Rothbard of Terraplane Sun. With a blend of jazz, psychedelia, folk, hip-hop, and electronica, The Palms have created a fresh sound informed by their love of all genres of music. The result are glittering, head-bopping tracks perfect for strolling the streets of Los Angeles after dark.

The chill Charlie album comes with some killer music videos featuring animation by Studio Films. A shaggy-haired hipster in skinny jeans and a slouchy beanie, reminiscent of a young Jason Schwartzman, is the focal point.

“My name is Parker Charlie Hughes, but people call me Charlie,” one of the YouTube video’s description reads. “Over the next 9 episodes, my story will unfold. A sonic portrait of my thoughts, feelings and observations from a recent 8 month journey that changed my life forever.”

The title track of the new album is a piano and drum-driven jam.

“Nostalgia” is a dark and hypnotic tune that evokes smoking in the attic during a bout of insomnia.

“Jello” is a sexy, danceable bop.

Check the rest of The Palms’ tunes on their YouTube channel. They’ll help you keep your cool until the apocalyptic year that was 2020 comes to a close.
