What does everyone have lined up?
It’s Palm Haze day for me. Earlier this year I heard their song “Wildflower” in one of the Rolling Shoegaze threads and it blew me away instantly (and it looks as if it’s going to be on the album). I’ve made this comparison before, but if the idea of Sonic Youth’s 'Cross the Breeze being mixed with the shoegaze blasts of peak Silversun Pickups appeals to you, you need to listen to this song. I’ve been wrong before but given how good their debut EP was, I don’t think this album is going to disappoint.
I’ll also give the new Tool album a shot, but my expectations are tempered.
