Century Palm - Meet You LP
Century Palm is Paul Lawton (Ketamines), Andrew Payne (Zebrassieres), Penny Clark (Tough Age) and Jesse Locke (Dirty Beaches). This debut album was recorded by the band in Toronto, mixed in Vancouver by Jay Arner and mastered in Australia by Mikey Young.
Meet You is ten songs about getting to know another layer of yourself ‰ÛÓ even when you think you know yourself ‰ÛÒ and about subtle tones of despair, plus the things you aren‰۪t encouraged to express on an everyday basis.
Century Palm crib shamelessly from Wire, Neu!, and Eno-era Roxy Music, modern Australian bands like Total Control, and failed experiments from earlier, abandoned projects. There are many instances of droning synths ruining perfectly nice pop songs.
