- The Plain Where The Palace Stood
- Artist: David Grubbs
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 4/16/2013
Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 release from the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist best known for his work with Squirrel Bait, Bastro and Gastr del Sol. Plain Where the Palace Stood finds him twining together the diverse strands of his vast interests. Working with Andrea Belfi (drums, electronics) and Stefano Pilia (guitar) creates a sympathetic groupthink for David. As in the days of Gastr del Sol, songs float in idiosyncratic, exceptionally unhurried arrangements, featuring vocals on just four of the 11 tracks. The welcome return of his distinctive overdriven guitar tone is a highlight of the record.
