Palomar, 'All Things, Forests' (Misra)

7
All Things, Forests
Critical Mass
Label: Misra

by Will Hermes

Like the Bangles with a death wish, this indie-rock girl gang (and a token guy) begin their fourth CD with Shangri-Las harmonies on a song about being buried. And though they aren't afraid anymore of sounding bigger than four kids in a rented room, singer Rachel Warren still comes off as disenchanted. "The best times / We were dead drunk with multiple visions," she intones on a song about time's lamentable passage, suggesting nostalgia is as good an excuse to rock as it is to wallow.
