Palmer Generator – (E)Motionless


Palmer Generator – (E)Motionless
Self released – 2013
Rock, Alternative, Progressive, Stoner
Rated: ***

Hailing from the Marche countryside in Italy, the three men from Palmer Generator just released a second effort called (E)Motionless. It is a family affair comprised out of brothers and a son and shows the legacy of a very musical family. The sound on the album feels otherworldly, experimental and has definite dreamlike qualities. It comes across like a weird hybrid of Eastern influenced space out music, with South-American ditties, progressive rock and stoner inspired rhythms and riffs. Some of the vocal parts could use a little work but this is hardly worth mentioning for the mind pictures painted are extraordinary. You can just as easily imagine green rainforests and naked beauties bathing under waterfalls, worn down parts of town where the wind has free reign over all the rubbish and very little souls dare venture or even sacred rituals by masked freaks that try to waken some ancient power. In other words; Palmer Generator has a lot to offer and probably has something for everyone…
