Elin Palmer - Postcard (Independently released CD, Progressive pop)
The debut solo album from Sweden's Elin Palmer. Some folks may already be familiar with Palmer's playing as she has acted in a supporting role for a variety of well-known underground artists including (but not limited to) Eric Bachman. Postcard is a wonderfully fulfilling album. Palmer's music recalls a variety of artists...most notably Lisa Germano and Rasputina (although only occasionally sounding like either one). She writes wonderfully flowing melodies, has an incredible voice, and threads lots of cool stringed instruments into her compositions. This short album (clocking in at just under 30 minutes) is a rather mindblowing debut. We can't help but think that Elin Palmer will be an underground celebrity over the course of the next few months. Killer heady pop tracks include "Postcard," "Paint," "Balloons," and "Whaleboat." (Rating: 5+)
