"GIMME GIMME" - OBJECT TEN COMPILATION

“Gimme Gimme” (by Pallas Athene) was released on the compilation album, OBJECT TEN. This is the tenth release on Objects Forever, the label run by London drone pop band The Leaf Library. The album features original pieces by new and established artists alike, including friends and collaborators past and future, as well as band members’ own side projects. The music showcases a breadth of styles, ranging from the weary pop of fellow Walthamstow band Firestations to the celestial drones of Tiki Erie, from cracked acoustic recordings and loops to heavy, skulking electronics and space rock.Special edition copies of the release are accompanied by a book of photos and lyrics by some of the artists involved[“Gimme Gimme” - Written/Recorded/Produced by Pallas Athene]LISTEN / SUPPORT on Bandcamp>

"WEIRD EMOS" - DOLLARSTORE KEYBOARD (PALLAS ATHENE REMIX)

I had a lot of fun creating this Yoshi’s Island-inspired remix of Dollarstore Keyboards’s track, “Weird Emos”. You can hear it on his album, Discgarden (2021)

"KESSON DASLEF" - APHEX TWIN (PALLAS ATHENE REMIX)

“Aphex Twin's groundbreaking 2001 album "Drukqs" was released exactly 20 years ago today. In celebration, a community of talented and creative individuals have produced over 30 remixes, covers, and reinterpretations of the tracks off of this seminal work.” - Greystar via Braindance News

"PALLAS ATHENE" - SELF-TITLED DEBUT EP

Pallas Athene released her debut self-titled EP in October 2019– a dark pop record with lo-fi dream vocals and minimalistic beats (written, recorded, and produced by Pallas Athene) featuring a collaboration with Minnesota’s “Dollarstore Keyboard”."Evocative of words from J G Ballard’s sci-fi novels, scenes from Ben Wheatley films, ‘Pallas Athene’ is ominously eerie, a spectre gaining ground on its victim. It’s absurdly alluring though, its tractor beam light luring you into a strange, uninhabited land."
- Balloon Machine [UK]
"Beats, minimalism, self-awareness, self-reflection, outward infinity – all conjoin to make something that is beautiful in its oddity and reflexive luxury. With ‘The Wall’, those walls do fall asunder, proclaiming that rise out of the fires of detriment and doubt. It rises."
- Come Here Floyd (US) > >

"WHAT I WANT" (Brought to Light Vol.1 - Fat Cat Records UK)

"The “Brought to Light” release is a collection of demos, curated by the label, who have deemed them some of the finest submissions they’ve received over the last few years. FatCat has a long tradition of supporting new artists and treating demos with an open mind. This new collection of songs, the first in a trilogy of such releases, is demonstrable to the eclectic taste the label has always possessed.One of the founding partners of the label, Alex Knight says. “FatCat has a rich history of signing Artists from Demo recordings, this includes renowned artists such as Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad, Animal Collective, and Max Richter as well as current signings C Duncan, Samana, Resina, and Shida Shahabi. We receive a wonderful array of demo’s and the compilation is a great way to highlight just how good this material is!”FatCat have always been a label that comfortably straddles the line between guitar music and electronica. For this release, the focus is on the sort of DIY guitar sound of which Paws and TRAAMS fans might enjoy. Away from the FatCat roster, fans of Yuck, Cloud Nothings, Drenge, and Girl Band will also find plenty in which to immerse themselves. The next two compilations will focus on other genres that make up the FatCat musical tradition.The artists on this release are all at different stages of their careers. Some have gone to work with labels, some have remained independent. Some are new, some have been around for years. The album has been lovingly put together by FatCat with the intention of bringing these songs into the spotlight.Album art by Joby Barnard Window Photo by Mary Martinreleased July 12, 2019"
