Date Palms‘ Thrill Jockey debut, The Dusted Sessions, is more than a genre-defying slice of desert psychedelia, they employ traditional rock instrumentation to create music informed by Indian classical music, country, minimalism, and spiritual jazz, arriving at a style that is wholly their own.
Led by the core duo of Gregg Kowalsky and Marielle Jakobsons, the group excels at creating highly melodic and emotionally affecting compositions that draw their power from the balance of their cosmic ambitions and reverence for earth-bound beauty. Sky Trails is a previously unreleased track from the same sessions that produced the album. The track finds the band revisiting melodic ideas that recurred throughout the record, unwinding and expanding the familiar themes atop a dramatic drone baseline. The track will appear on a special tour CD-R that features unreleased material and demos that the band will be selling at upcoming shows.
Date Palms will embark on a European tour, beginning in Cardiff, UK on 13th September and ending in London, UK on 23rd September, where they will play a special gig at Cafe Oto with J. Spaceman, Pat Thomas, Plankton Wat and Kid Millions (of Oneida fame). The band will also be playing at the renowned Incubate Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands.
