OUT NOW: B.B. PALMER Bridges the Far East with the Deep South on New EP, KRISHNA COUNTRY GOLD

Article Contributed by Victory Lap PR | Published on Friday, August 26, 2022

Cosmic country fans rejoice: B.B. Palmer is back with his boldest offering to date. Aptly titled Krishna Country Gold and released August 19, 2022, the genre-defying collection explores intricate metaphysical theories inspired by Palmer’s deepening relationship with the Bhagavad Gita. Juxtaposed with the Lee County, Alabama native’s staunchly Catholic upbringing, the poignant listen funnels philosophies from opposite ends of the earth into one brilliant kaleidoscope.

On Krishna Country Gold, Palmer weaves the rich texture of far eastern traditions with a downhome blend of country grit and all American storytelling. The resulting sonic patchwork employs everything from traditional Indian instruments like the sitar and tanpura, to an exuberant horn section, and trademark country apparatuses like the slide guitar, fiddle and organ. Clocking in at just under 20 minutes, the breakneck collection doesn’t skip a beat. Each bite-sized chapter unravels a goldmine of surprises that keeps listeners at the edge of their seats.

On the heels of Palmer’s 2019 full length debut, Lee County’s Finest, Krishna Country Gold is an illustrious followup to Palmer’s previous works. With updated instrumentation, strikingly vulnerable subject matter, and timely, whimsical embellishments, Palmer’s latest exudes a maturity that is well beyond the young troubadour’s years.

Glide Magazine has compared the project to the likes of George Harrison, Father John Misty, and Devandra Banhart, calling it “ a twangy mystic stew” while PopMatters has lauded it  “a mesmerizing brand of ethereal roots music.” At its core, the record underwrites the journey of a vagabond soul yearning for home; an earnest exploration of global soundscapes and diverse perspectives. Remarkably accessible and studded with provocative insight, Krishna Country Gold is a living relic of personal conviction that warps and bends with its protagonist’s ever-unfolding discoveries.

Krishna Country Gold is now streaming on all digital listening platforms. Newly-announced tour dates and a track listing can be found below. For more information, and to stay up-to-date on all things B.B. Palmer, visit bbpalmermusic.com.
