MySpace Artist of the day – Sam and The Plants

Sam_and_the_plantsSam and The Plants are one of the strangest bands I’ve ever stumbled across. Somehow, they’ve found a place to exist that lies between classic acid-folk, Spiritualized, Faust and ethereal electronica. Quite often, when a band (especially a folk act) dabbles in electronics, they sound contrived and terrible quite frankly. Sam and The Plants are different. The ease with which they sneak bib-bobs and analogue squelches in only furthers the wonderful sonic tapestry they create.

It’s hard to pick one stand out track on their MySpace page, but most immediately accessible is the jaunty ‘3 Feet’ which kicks off in reverse, before morphing into something from Ray Davies’ mind during an acid comedown/nervous breakdown. Stunning stuff from Sam and The Plants. Keep an eye out for an EP release on Twisted Nerve.
