Yet another good thing having five parts to equal a solid whole comes straight from Venice, CA: Terraplane Sun. Where the sun and swamp meet, Ben Rothbard (vocals, guitar, harmonica, tambourine), Johnny Zambetti (guitar, mandolin), Cecil Campanaro (bass), Gabe Feenberg (keys, lap steel guitar, trombone) and Lyle Riddle (drums) have no problems blending and bending the curves of rock and blues, country and folk, and whatever else they deem worthy in their world. They just wrapped up a successful July residency at the LA venue, the Satellite, and if you missed it I’m a little sad for you. They’ve got soul, they’ve got grit, and is a righteous cocktail of pure musicianship. Fresh from their upcoming Friends EP is a little “Get Me Golden.”
Enjoy the tunes, explore the bands, and get your summer on.
