PLOT 66: Self-titled: 7”

Jul 20, 2021

What an absolute pleasure to find this in my review pile. This band features Frank Piegaro (Worriers, The Love Songs) on bass, theremin, piano; Kamala Parks (Kamala And The Karnivores, The Gr’ups, Cringer) on drums; and two highly talented musicians who I didn’t know before this release—Matt Peterson on synthesizer; and Faith Gardner on vocals and guitar. There’s so much to love about this release. Faith’s vocals are breathy some times, high pitched and reverb-drenched others. Throughout the release she shows off her range with crisply delivered, catchy-as-hell melodies. Plot 66 also has a gothy/witchy vibe which largely stems from the theremin and synth, but it’s also just an overall pastiche of the group. To me it sounds like a power pop version of Jesus And Mary Chain with a faster tempo. The tracks feel very lived in, as if the group really branched out and explored a new sound for all involved. The second track, “Ghost,” has a guitar riff that reminds me a lot of The Misfits’ “Come Back,” though Plot 66 puts an awesome flourish on it that sounds artsy and dark. This is a super solid release and I very much hope they keep churning out new songs. –Kayla Greet (Self-released)
