Unpeeled: Laura Palmer’s DEATH PARADE – “Salty Arms”

We’re incredibly stoked to debut our “Unpeeled” video series via Portland Mercury. In this series, we’re leaving our cozy venue at the Banana Stand to record acoustic performances from some of Portland’s best songwriters in their natural habitats.


And what better way to begin this series than with Laura Palmer of Laura Palmer’s DEATH PARADE, her acoustic guitar, and the beautiful backdrop of the Willamette. Laura kicks off “Salty Arms” with some quick finger picking and some mesmerizing vocals. She then finishes things off by launching the song into high gear, hammering out chords in a vocal crescendo. It’s an amazing start to a great series. Check it out!
