New Music: Joel Plaskett Emergency – Lightning Bolt
Canada’s Joel Plaskett plays a brand of Indie Rock that draws from the finer moments of 70’s AM Radio. The construction of his songs are sneakily complex as is his writing. “Lightning Bolt” starts off sounding like a late night bedroom jam with just a man and his amp. The track builds from there, reaching a crescendo as Plaskett’s band, The Emergency, joins in on the fun. You can purchase his latest album, Scrappy Happiness, over at his website – and see Joel live at O’Brien’s on 03/20/13.
