Palma Violets - 180 album download

Palma Violets were an English band from Lambeth, London. The band formed in 2011, based on the musical partnership of frontmen Samuel Fryer and Chilli Jesson. The band's musical output is primarily in the indie rock genre, with some garage rock and psychedelic influences. Palma Violets' first single, "Best of Friends", was voted NME's song of the year for 2012, and their debut album 180 was released on 25 February 2013.

180 is the first studio album by London indie rock group Palma Violets. It was released on 25 February 2013 and follows their debut single "Best of Friends" the previous year, which was selected as 'Best Track Of 2012' by NME magazine. The album title is taken from the studio in Lambeth, London in which the band often performs. Palma Violets signed to Rough Trade Records in May 2012, a label that features The Libertines, The Strokes and The Smiths as signed artists.

Palma Violets have been hyped as ‘the new Libertines’, saddled with saving guitar music and signed in a whirlwind to Rough Trade, so it’s no surprise ‘180’ sounds rushed – but it works. Whole heaps of thumping drums, choppy guitars and rickety organs thrash and clatter anarchically along, nodding to The Clash and The Troggs, while Sam Fryer and Chilli Jesson howl over the top. The album is also packed with in-jokes – the kind most bands iron out before letting their songs anywhere near the public.

Palma Violets are a young band who've already received ecstatic acclaim from the most excitable parts of the English music press. Like so many scrappy, pub-rocking British blokes before them, Palma Violets face an awkward proposition when presenting its debut record 180 on this side of the pond. Because they've received ecstatic acclaim from the most excitable parts of the English music press, they will inevitably be described as hyped or (worse) over-hyped. And this will impact how 180 is perceived in this country, because of the aforementioned long line of scrappy (and hyped!) pub-rocking British blokes that have tried and failed to make an impression in the States.

Palma Violets are four young boys from the London neighborhood of Lambeth, whose main aim is to make people feel good when listening to music. 180 contains eleven of the most entertaining and powerful tracks I've ever heard, and its an album I seriously never get tired of. Palma Violets have really made themselves known by having extremely exciting live shows, with members of the band, mainly singer and bassist, Chilli Jesson, flinging himself all over the stage and crowd surfing between yelling his own inspirational lines to the crowd to get them going

180 is the first studio album by Palma Violets. The album title is taken from the studio in Lambeth in which the band often performs. More Palma Violets albums. Last Christmas On Planet Earth.

As it stands, 180 isn’t actually that a good of an album in its own right. Opening track Best Of Friends, the one that flicked the switch on the hype machine, is a fun and boisterous effort that ticks all of the boxes; expansive sing-a-long chorus, propulsive bass line and a catch-all message that should get all the drunken gig goers singing and hugging. In fact, it’s such a successful formula that they decide to repeat it almost note-for-note on Last Of The Summer Wine, Step Up For The Cool Cats and then offer dull variations on the mix again throughout the rest of the album.
