Every now and then you hear a song from a new band (just one single song), and you become completely obsessed with that band. The latest example of that for us is Palberta's "Corner Store."
The New York City trio have been releasing music since 2015, but they've somehow slipped by us unnoticed. "Corner Store" has changed all that. The song reminds me of early that dog mixed with later that dog. It has the gorgeous three part harmonies mixed with a 90's indie rock aesthetic. It's the smooth sounds from Retreat From the Sun combined with the rawness of their 1994 debut album. Somehow Palberta are making harmonies punk, and we love them for that.
You can watch the video for "Corner Store" below. Palberta5000, the upcoming album from Palberta, will be out January 22 on Wharf Cat Records. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Palberta, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
