Date Palms – “of Psalms” – [Root Strata]
Debut release, “Of Psalms” by Date Palms, an Oakland-based project featuring composer Gregg Kowalsky and sound artist/violinist Marielle Jakobsons (darwinsbitch, myrmyr). They craft pleasant, drony, raga-like instrumental pieces, some more Eastern-flavored than others. I’m drawn to the pretty, twinkling strings and bells. Drama by way of bass, feedback and repetitive phrasing in places. Michael Elrod adds tanpura on one track and Noah Phillips provides guitar on other. Elevated psych.
