Olden Yolk Share Grand Palais
Someone reached out the other day to ask me what I’d been listening to a lot, and I had two albums on repeat pretty much the entire week, one being Olden Yolk‘s Living Theatre (the other is that Martha record!). Musically, it’s a magical journey that’s far more diverse than I expected, and I mean that in the best way possible…”Grand Palais” gives you another look at the band’s new LP. There’s these psychedelic elements, though they often end up being disguised beneath these textured layers of sort of Spector-esque pop vibes; it’s disorienting and captivating, and ultimately emphatic with the drumming of Booker Stardrum (what a name!). It even closes with this little spoken word jam journey, further spinning the band and the listener into a pop spiral! Living Theatre is out May 17th via Trouble in Mind Records.
