New Album from Paleo

Posted: March 18, 2011 in Folk, Indie, Music, Pop, Rock

The King James Facebook by Paleo from his 2010 album A View of the Sky was one of our favourite tunes of the year, appearing in our 2010 Best Of Top Ten posting. Now the wandering folk troubadour is back with another album Fruit Of The Spirit, which will see a release on Partisan Records in June.

This time he has decided to try something which’d never occurred to him before: collaboration. Friends strode in from around the region – Chicago, Minneapolis, Iowa City, Rock Island, and Lawrence – and with next to no rehearsal and no lead sheets, they huddled for a three-day creative blitzkrieg. Electrofolk artist Cloud Dog lends samples and howls in the background, the bastard folkies from Minnesota add their sad, quirk-pop sensibility, and a revolving door of drummers and percussionists take turns on the kit.

Together they bottled a mischievous, mercurial record sparking with imperfection: the bruised, sweet, and colorful Fruit Of The Spirit.

Check out the excellent taster track In The Movies – two minutes of indie folk perfection with a melody so catchy you’ll be humming it for days.

    “In the Movies” is a fantastic pick – really retro feel to it, love the fuzzy vocal. Thanks Mackerel 🙂
