Great Western Plain – Elastic SmilePosted: March 30, 2014
Somehow imagining that the music on this burning krautrocker would be played by the three benevolent-looking ladies on the cover makes it all the more badass. In fact the Great Western Plain is three manly men from Portland, ME who brew up their own hypnotic fuzzy edition of psychedelic rock and sandwich themselves somewhere between the neurotic 90’s indie classics and the best, autobahn-burning synaptic travellers. And all that done with a classy distortion to boot. And that meaty bass, it makes my knees soft. Gentlemen, start your engines.
EDIT: I just noticed I wrote “OR” instead of “ME”. They’re from Portland, Maine, NOT Portland, Oregon. So sorry, guys! I feel so embarassed now. 😦
