1990 is making a comeback with this week’s featured band, Plantation.
After a short hiatus Plantation is back with new members. But, not to worry, their high energy, heavy guitar riffs, and powerful vocals have remained untampered. Originally from Vineland, NJ, Plantation moved to Philadelphia earlier this year and recorded their very first EP, Out of the Dark, at Milkboy Studios with producer Karl Petersen. This six track compilation echoes strong influences from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Their bluesy southern rock sound grasps at the grunge era with a nod to bands such as Black Sabbath, Alice in Chains, and Down. Much like the aforementioned, it is apparent that Plantation pours their blood, sweat, and tears into everything they do.
If you didn’t catch Plantation at this year’s First Annual Yard’s Fest, be sure to check them out at Bourbon & Branch Friday October 24th with East of the West, Solus Rex, and Pravda.
Out of the Dark is available for download at http://plantation.bandcamp.com/, and don’t forget Plantation will be in heavy rotation all this week. You can catch a track at the beginning of every Gashouse Live (weeknights 6pm ET), and if you like what you hear, show some love and use the thumbs up/down button to voice your opinion.
Fun Fact: Plantation chose their name in hope to one day own a self-sufficient farm/recording studio.
