Summertime joy

Wow. We have really neglected this thing. Ok, here is the buddy update. I have been in Central America for the past couple months, Nick has been composing, playing in Ether and has a couple other projects going on. We have been writing some new material that we hope to record before the end of the year. We have a few shows lined up as well (check our myspace page). We will be featured for a download on Utahfm.org sometime this month as well.

We recently had our latest record reviewed in Slug Mag, check it out:

Palace of Buddies
Kilby Records
Street: 03.21
POB = Health + Sonic Youth + Blonde Redhead + Beach Boys
Palace of Buddies is the larger than life projection of two kids playing with their toys: Tim Myers slinging his axe, keyboards and sampler, while Nick Foster pounds the skins, percussion and even more keyboards. It is their youthful experimentation and exuberance that makes Palace of Buddies such a powerhouse in the local rock and electronic scene. In what I would consider calculated risk, Palace of Buddies stretch the boundaries of modern songwriting while still appeasing the listener with tremendous musicianship. “Dirty Diapers” is their claim to fame, with a vicious polyrhythm set to the focused single guitar note, but there are undiscovered gems throughout the album. New age, proto-casio breakdowns such as “Hope For Me” and the melodical and spiritual drive of “Noel” are my favorite tracks. This is the best local release of the year. Go to your local record store and get a copy. –Andrew Glassett

Also, here is a video from the Slug localized that we played in May:
