Sunday Night Music: Palm Sunday and Canary Room

Palm Sunday is a genre-bending Portland-based band spearheaded by songwriter Merle Law. They started this project in Atlanta GA in 2018 where they recorded the lofi debut EP “Wishful Thinking” later released in New Orleans LA. They are currently cooking up their first full-length album recorded entirely to tape in Portland, OR. The counter-jazz rhythms overlap with timeless ethereal songwriting. The effect of being elevated by something familiar. The melancholy, unconventional rhythm, and tropical elements carry one another.

Canary Room is Portland-via-Wisconsin singer-songwriter Maddy Heide’s combination of lilting vocal melodies and ethereal fingerpicking backed up by a lush instrumental soundscape. Her tender recollections are presented with a palpable authenticity—like time capsules out of which long-kept memories freely flow, they invite the listener to piece together fragments of a time gone by.
