San Francisco psych-pop duo Painted Palms are proud to announce the upcoming release of their debut full-length album Forever, out January 14 via Polyvinyl Records. The album follows their 2011 EP Canopy and the Carousel 7".

Whether living four states away or four blocks away, Reese Donohue and Christopher Prudhomme have always used the Internet -- at first out of necessity, later out of preference -- to collaborate on their songwriting.

Although the cousins grew up together in Lafayette, Louisiana, Donohue eventually moved to San Francisco, while Prudhomme stayed near New Orleans.

The newfound distance between them forced the pair to start sending song ideas back and forth via e-mail, a virtual exchange that quickly spawned Painted Palms' first release, Canopy, which was discovered by of Montreal's Kevin Barnes.

Tours with of Montreal, Braids and STRFKR soon followed before Prudhomme moved out west to San Francisco, where Donohue still lived.
SOFT METALS
SOFT METALS
Soft Metals is a multi-disciplinary electronic duo from Portland, Oregon now residing in Los Angeles, California. Its members Ian Hicks and Patricia Hall were brought together through a common love of synthesizer music and began writing and recording songs together in the spring of 2009. Inspiration came to them by way of experimental electronic sounds, film soundtracks, early industrial music, minimal synth, house, techno, synth pop, krautrock, and shoegaze. Their songs are built from moody, improvised sessions fusing old and new production technologies using exclusively electronic instruments. Soft Metals express themselves freely rather than adhere to a particular genre. This freedom gives them a diverse sound somewhere between dance music, austere synthetic pop, and experimental electronic composition

Soft Metals is signed to Captured Tracks and released their first record, an 5 song EP titled “The Cold World Melts” in July 2010. Their debut self-titled album came out in July of 2011. FACT magazine called Soft Metals “one of the most accomplished and ambitious of the myriad new synth-pop acts coming out of the States.”

July 2013 saw the release of their 2nd full length Lenses. The duo have toured extensively through North America and are about to embark on their first tour of Europe.

Melted Toys
"Crunching post-punk bass lines, reverberating shoegaze guitars, and wailing psychedelic powerpop vocals all thrown together in a fiery kiln produced Melted Toys. The San Francisco group’s hazy and infectious demos are already making waves in their hometown. Now, a recent record deal and nationwide tour are giving the group some playing room, setting the ground for Melted Toys’ vividly lo-fi aesthetic to take proper shape." --Noise Pop
