London-based Palma Violets make the kind of down-to-earth garage-rock that is so well loved in Portland. Guitar anthems and booming drums set the stage for melody-laced vocals, all coming together in their boozy, sweaty, welcoming debut album, 180. Frontmen Samuel Fryer and Chilli Jesson complement each other's shredding, singing, and thrashing to create dynamic and fiery songs that take direct cues from the Clash and Iggy Pop. Their music is uproarious and rambunctious—and for a relatively new band, they own a combination of sounds that immediately sparks an energy inside that tells you to engage. RACHEL MILBAUER
