Beat-ConnectionI knew I had missed so many great albums in my best list. The Palace Garden, debut LP of Seattle based trio Beat Connection -first a two piece, then four and now three, is surely one of them. Apparently, not everything that comes out of this gloomy city is grim and at times, it can leave you injected with energy. I had only come across their single “The Palace Garden, 4 am” and for some reason, haven’t made the effort to listen to the rest of their songs. My loss. Turns out, they are these beautiful, uplifting, a bit dreamy and melodic synth pop/indietronica tunes that I’m absolutely loving, and will be playing at our gigs. Too bad they don’t have any live shows coming up soon in London. For now, videos will do. Enjoy…
