Now back after 2011’s fantastic Canopy EP, Polyvinyl has announced a new 7″ from Painted Palms. That’s the a-side, “Carousel”, above. It’s a big change for the band that was oft accused of aping Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion sound, opting for a more muted, minimal sound that builds on simple drums, guitar, and keys. I suppose it’s the band reeling back from the over-the-top nature of their EP for something more down to earth. The result is a sleepy little track, one that piques my interest over what comes next.
