Album Notes
Children of Coal Miners and Mormon Immigrants don’t usually make for good rock music candidates, but in the case of Palodine they bring with them an underlying power and intensity which tests the boundaries of dark American music. Before meeting each other, guitarist Michael Aryn and singer Katrina Whitney had virtually parallel music experiences. Both had dabbled in shoegazer, gothic, experimental, folk and country projects. When they began playing together, their musical kinship became readily apparent and their influences quickly formed into their own unique sound. Within a few months of forming, they self-produced and mixed their debut record (“Desolate Son” 2006) on an unheated floating barge during one of the coldest weeks in the Seattle’s history.

2007 saw Palodine performing live as a four or five piece and opening for such acclaimed artists as Woven Hand (Featuring David Eugene Edwards of Sixteen Horsepower), Willard Grant Conspiracy and Low, as well as a return to the studio to work on their follow-up record. Recorded by Michael Aryn with Desmond Shea (Diamanda Galas, Tarnation, Einstürzende Neubauten) at the mixing board, “Garden Of Deceit” deliveres a darker and grittier interpretation of their sound, more bombastic percussion, and heightened urgency from Michael’s guitar playing. This Sophmore effort also sees Katrina delivering a deeper and more resonant vocal style, while continuing to explore the Biblical imagery and religious symbolism that were alluded to in their prior effort.

Garden of Deciet gives us ten songs about lies, hypocrisy, scars, jealousy, deceit, restoration, and endurance. Here we witness a band evolving and working out their personal demons. While it may be a more direct and raw delivery both musically and thematically than their debut, there are also moments of introspection and vulnerability, ultimately resolving with a sense of illumination.
