about

“Hell of an album. It makes me want to say dirty things about it...I love it.”

— John Richards, DJ KEXP 90.3FM SEATTLE

“Think of Palodine as the sonic equivalent of a Cormac McCarthy novel: a bewitching, unsettling combination of beauty and darkness; a place where gloriously ominous storm clouds are always on the horizon and terror lurks in beautiful shadows.”

— Barbara Mitchell, Seattle Sound Magazine

“Having opened and shared the stage with Low,Wovenhand and Willard Grant Conspiracy, you get an idea of where Palodine is on the musical spectrum. Led by singer Katrina Whitney. Whitney’s hushed and sometimes haunting vocals also sound like Patti Smith on the plodding but pleasing “Scar”. “Sweet Mouth, Black Heart” is a rougher, cocksure number that has a darker, ominous hue a la P.J. Harvey. Perhaps the best of the bunch is “Sorrow Has Opened Our Eyes”, another number you could envision Whitney getting lost in, resembling a fuller, rounded-out track The Handsome Family might have a stab at. And it gets stronger with each listen and each song, whether it’s the alt.country eeriness fueling “A Dozen Stones” or the chilling “Ways to Drown”. The coda on the album, “Magdalene”, reminds you that Palodine should have an incredibly bright future with such dark, dreary songs”
