02.26.04 Palomar makes Page 6!

11.05.03 Palomar's next record "Lift / Drag" is finished. We just heard a copy of the record, and damn if it's not great. It's their best record so far, and we're guessing they're going to keep getting better.

07.15.03 We are sad to report that Matt has left Palomar. But we are happy to report that Dale has joined Palomar. Welcome, Dale!

Palomar is a NYC band that plays gritty sing-song pop-rock. Palomar (rhymes with Mallomar) formed in April 1998 as a trio: Rachel, Sasha, Matt. Two cassettes and a self-released 14-song CD later, the band recruited guitarist, vocalist and Rachel's former bandmate from Trixie Belden, Christina, in Fall 2000 to stir up the noodles. In the summer of 2001, Sasha left Palomarsville and was replaced by Sarah, formerly of Philadelphia non-metal band Overlord. Along the way they've played with everybody from The Gossip to Burning Airlines to The Strokes. (To recap, Palomar is currently Rachel, Matt, Christina and Sarah.)

Palomar have spent the last two years on the road and in the studio perfecting something that no other band knows how to do: how to be Palomar. They nailed it. A hugely wonderful album.

"Palomar II"
Catalog number: PSP 021
Track listing: click here
Release date: 04.23.02

Fun and frenetic pop from these long-time NYC favorites. 14 catchy songs with instrument credits including typewriter and tap dancing. These kids use everything but the kitchen sink (but mostly four voices, two loud guitars, a bass, and a drumkit) to make their brand of delightful pop.
