Palomica is the home-recorded clumsy rock and roll project of Nicol Parkinson. It’s incidental outside sounds alongside tumbling words and occasional guitar flourishes: sometimes melodic, sometimes cacophonic.

Petito is Palomica’s second full length album, and their first with Fika Recordings. Since 2013’s “Sometimes It’s A Struggle”, Parkinson has played with co-existing unrelated sounds, bringing tape manipulation, ambient recordings and electronic drones to his delicate pop songs. It was partially recorded in his childhood bedroom outside Brighton, with his childhood cats poking around, and finished in Bristol in late 2015 with a different cat poking around.

There’s a wide range of avant and pop influences running through Petito’s 8 tracks. The art-rock of Japanese naivest Tori Kudo’s Maher Shalal Hash Baz has undoubtedly influenced Parkinson’s fluid approach to melody and composition, and acceptance of confusion, as has Jad and David Fair’s careful carelessness. Petito occupies a world where the Movietone, The Velvet Underground and Tenniscoats are essential listening.
