"No crossed arms," Palma Violets' merch guy and hype man said at a New York show. "Tonight is the night to fight against that." This band gave the London rock scene a shot of punk earnestness with a debut full of garageland guitars, Strokesy singing and psych-nuggets organ, all in the service of songs unafraid of a good yell-along chorus.
