Plateau Below | Riverside

February 23, 2014 at 4:13 am Leave a comment

Bloomington, Indiana band, Plateau Below, will be releasing their debut record, “Still Paradise”, on March 4th via Jurassic Pop Records. Until then, they’ve posted a single, “Riverside”, for you to stream at bandcamp. It’s a sad, nostalgic-sounding, lovely kind of psych-rock track. There are a number touchstones here, maybe a little Bright Eyes and a band from New York called Uncle. What distinguishes this song is the combination of laid-back guitar strumming and lead vocals teetering on a raspy edge to the point of hoarseness, giving severe weight to poetic lyricism and a growing instrumental thunder: “Starvin’ by the riverside / I’m just waitin’ here for my wife / She went and ran off with another Jack / But I’m sure she’ll come running back / I can’t remember what her eyes look like.” Lyrics are unofficial. You can follow the band at facebook.  — David D. Robbins Jr.
