Palais d’argile; where the eras of Remain in Light and In Rainbows live in harmony.

Sometimes, I ponder to myself about much phenomenal music I’m missing out on due to cultural barriers. Websites like RYM and AOTY will often tip me off about foreign albums that would otherwise slip through the cracks for me, as a Native English speaker, but are relatively popular in other regions; and its albums such as Palais d’argile truly make me treasure having something like AOTY at my ... read more
Éste debería tener al menos mil valuaciones, buenas o malas, tan sólo que le diesen una oportunidad, con eso sería suficiente para certificarlo. Qué le piden ellos a For Those I Love o a un ya añejo Nick Cave, sé que es injusto el comparar a artistas que no se desenvuelven dentro del mismo género, pero en ocasiones como audiencia nos dejamos llevar o apantallar por lo mediático, o en el polo opuesto por la presunción ... read more
If this album was in English Fantano would’ve given it a 6.
I was not expecting this at all, the patterns of drumming throughout the entire project were almost always on point to the signature change and chorus.
The chords and melodies played throughout the first half of the project were going from strength to strength, a consistent mood was set and each track felt evolving.

Definitely one of the strongest LP's of the year so far.

"Palais d'argile" with its raw, nearly organic feeling creates a timeless acoustic sound, taking inspiration in the early days of music but also adding its own modern twists. Even though you can find here some disco, rock, and even electronica flavours, the whole record isn't monumental, with its very drawn-back atmosphere it flows nicely, but without grandiose moments.

POV: You are listening to this because of The Best Teeth in the Game.
