Geoff Palmer, of New Hampshire’s The Connection/The Guts glory, has a solo album dropping June 7th on Stardumb Records (EU) and Rum Bar Records (US) titled Pulling out all the Stops. The album is available for pre-order on CD and streaming with bonus tracks (via Rum Bar) here, and on red or black vinyl and 7″ here in the US (via The Machine Shop) and here for Europe.
“There’s nothing left to do. I’m giving up and giving into you.” is the chorus which breaks through the catchy harmonic cadence in this newest single, “Giving In” off the upcoming record. We’re streaming the music video below which has an interesting nostalgic quality of a lazy Saturday morning watching the spinning grooves of a record and the needle, or the dog. “You are 1989 and I am East of Berlin… I’m giving up my walls for something new.”
Geoff Palmer and his associated acts have several times been featured by Steven Van Zandt (Bruce Springsteen/Sirius FM Underground Garage) for having the “coolest song in the world”. He has also recorded with The Queers under the name Geoff Useless on their Everything’s O.K. and Punk Rock Confidential albums. His music goes well with Alkaline Trio, The Hard-Ons and The Queers. Stream the video for “Giving In” below.
