Despair pop from Chicago, IL.
In 1997 during an extended break in between Braid tours, the band's vocalist / guitarist Robert Nanna began playing shows and recording under the title of The City On Film, but never taking it too seriously. Throughout Braid calling it a day and both the formation and demise of Hey Mercedes to follow, Robert juggled the project with a slew of smaller releases and tours with the likes of Kind of Like Spitting and other friends. In more recent years, The City On Film has been shifted up another gear with an ongoing list of releases, touring with Minus The Bear, Owen and more across the United States, UK, Europe, South-East Asia and Australia. He has since ditched The City On Film moniker in favor of his actual name.
Frosty Palms is a studio project of Austin via Chicago musician and recording engineer Bryan Dalle Molle. Equal parts bedroom songwriting and detailed arranging combine with elements of psychedelia, noise, and sampling to submerge each track in it’s own unique sound world. All can be heard on ‘bugspray’, the first single from his forthcoming album.
Freshly squeezed, pressed, pureed, etc jangly punk. Locally sourced, not from concentrate.
