[Milk! Records and Friends]
Palm Springs began in 2014 previously releasing on Palm Springsteen Records. It remains an ongoing solo song-writing project for Erica Dunn (Mod Con, Tropical Fuck Storm). The project responds in spirit to deep outsider folk sentiments and recalls heroes of the genre; Karen Dalton, Pip Proud and Hopkins/Bradley to name a few references. The 2018 cassette release Palm Springs & Friends (via Tender Collection) was predominantly recorded to tape in a small analogue studio in the Lower East Side NYC and employs the help of two long time companions Paul Pirie and Steph Hughes. The takes are raw and immediate and resist over-production or elaboration an ethos that reflects the live shows, which are sparse and intimate.
