The Palms of a “Pachyderm”
Palms, a new band featuring Chino Moreno from Deftones and ex-Isis members Aaron Harris, Jeff Caxide and Bryant Clifford Meyer, have posted their debut track, “Pachyderm,” online. (A pachyderm, in case you don’t know, is just an animal with very thick skin, like an elephant or a hippo or a rhino or Axel Rudi Pell.) You can stream it below. It’s very mellow… it kinda sounds like This Will Destroy You with Chino Moreno vocals. Only it never really feels as cinematic, epic, or emotional as This Will Destroy You. I don’t think it’s a bad song, mind you, I’m just not sure it needed to be six minutes long.
[The song has been yanked. Sorry. Hopefully more Palms material will surface soon. -Ed.]
Palms’ debut album will be out June 25 via Ipecac.
And since we’re kinda-sorta on the topic, please allow me to quickly use this opportunity to try and turn a few of you on to This Will Destroy You:
