Petito from Palomica
Petito is Palomica’s second full length album, physician and their first with Fika Recordings. Since 2013’s “Sometimes It’s A Struggle”, Nicol Parkinson has played with co-existing unrelated sounds, bringing tape manipulation, ambient recordings and electronic drones to his delicate pop songs. It was partially recorded in his childhood bedroom outside Brighton, with his childhood cats poking around, and finished in Bristol in late 2015 with a different cat poking around.
Petito is full of incidental outside sounds alongside tumbling words and occasional guitar flourishes: sometimes melodic, sometimes cacophonic. For fans of Real Estate, Belle & Sebastian and Tenniscoats.
