Charlie Hilton: Palana
Buy! - (Captured Tracks)
The solo debut album from the lead singer of Portland group Blouse is an excellent set of varied psych-pop that finds her inviting, distant vocal style meshing beautifully over both moody ballads that are reminiscent of Nico and more propulsive tracks akin to Stereolab. Palana was produced by Jacob Portrait (of Blouse and Unknown Mortal Orchestra) who helps give the record its smart, fuzzy, nostalgic charm. 1/15/2016 - Alex
