Palomine is the first album by the Dutch indie rock band Bettie Serveert. In Europe, Palomine was released in 1992 on Guernica, a short-lived subsidiary of 4AD Records; in the United States, it was released on Matador Records. (A re-released version came out on Brinkman Records.) "Brain-tag" is a CD-only bonus track. Initial copies of the vinyl release included a bonus seven-inch single, common to Guernica LP releases.

A large poster of the sleeve is on the wall in the movie Empire Records.
