“I had a dream once where Brian Wilson was writing songs for The Stooges,” Michael le Riche of Toronto’s Fake Palms tells us. “In the dream he was playing them on the piano and describing how they would translate on guitar to Ron Asheton. When I woke up I couldn’t remember how any of the actual songs went but it struck me as something worth trying and I think maybe this is what that would sound like.”
He’s not too far off. There’s a raucous edge here to “YTMATLDPH”, but one with a melancholy pop sheen underneath it.
The song comes from the band’s self-titled LP out on August 28th on Buzz Records.
The band is on tour and hit Palisades in Brooklyn on August 24. Find the rest of their tour dates here.
