Our Song of the Day is from Steve Palmer’s new album Unblinking Sun released on September 11th, 2014 via one of our label favourites Dying For Bad Music (DFBM).
According to the DFBM Palmer is a Fahey nut and guitar obsessive. For his full length debut album he explores the experimental side of American Primitivism. Like Fahey Palmer brings a luminescence to the acoustic guitar, a pioneering player right out there in the blazing sun. On his video for ‘Six Dollar Sunglasses’, which we have the pleasure of premièring today, the experimental feel of the track is heightened with the use of polarized vintage footage from Prelinger Archives. This track is a joy and the video just heightens the articulation of his playing.
Unblinking Sun will be his debut full-length. His prior releases include Garfield Avenue Sessions, a compilation of home recordings issued on on the small tape label Ambivalent Soap, along with Fables of the Feral Boys, an online-only EP.
