PROMISES by Palmer

So, as you may or may not be aware, I created a “Promise” playlist back in November. In my research to create that playlist and the affiliated post, I encountered enough “Promises” songs to do a follow up.

The songs below are selected from the playlist, but they are not the entire playlist. The same rules apply to the Promises playlist that applied to Promise, only I’m throwing out the singular. This is only songs titled “Promises.” No “My Promises” or “Our Promises.”

Celebrating Sydney and The Arts with Anthemic Play It Safe

In October 2023, the iconic Sydney Opera House had a birthday festival to celebrate the 50 years since it opened its doors to the world.

The Sydney Opera House website, under “Our Story,” explains why this building should be a little more celebrated than most in their short three paragraph history, which is honestly one of the more accurate and succinct art building histories I have ever read.

PROMISE by Palmer

Promise by Palmer Music Playlist

Promise. It’s quite a word. It can be a declaration that one will or won’t do something. It can be legally binding. It can be a reason to expect something or an expectation of success. It can also be a pledge.

It’s a versatile word, and because of that I decided to see what a variety of artists could make of a promise by creating a playlist.

Odds’ Crash the Time Machine Reminiscent of ‘Cheerleader,’ Eels, and Cars

Odds Crash the Time Machine

Odds released Crash the Time Machine this year. And it was my first new-new music from Odds ever, as I’ve only known about the band for a few years thanks to Our Liner Notes host Chris Maier. Up to this point, it’s only been new-to-me music.

The internet describes Odds as “a Canadian power pop alternative rock band based in Vancouver, British Columbia,” and who am I to argue with that?

How I Halved My Record Collection and Why I Did it.

From Vinyl to MP3 to Vinyl

As some of you may know, or may have read back in 2021, I have been sorting things out five items at a time for a while now. That has not stopped.

While perhaps a great purge may have been better at some point as this has been going on since well before that original article was posted, I have been able to notice the difference. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t plenty of things I was avoiding.
