  • Listen: Palaces “Glisten & Trip/Still Romantic”

    The Detroit duo Palaces returned this month with a psych-infused new single, “Glisten & Trip/Still Romantic“. There’s a pretty nifty riff to start “Glisten & Trip“, and every time it seems to be climbing upward, it takes an unexpected detour back down. Meaty enough to marinate on, instead the pair distills several psych styled riffs here, with each time the […]
