Being that An Aquarium Drunkard’s two year anniversary is right around the corner, I am taking the opportunity to revisit some some artists in past posts whose music is rarely, if ever, reported on. I can’t think of a more perfect example than Joseph Plunkett & The Weight.
This will mark the third time – in 24 months – that I have posted these five tracks hoping to turn on new fans, and perhaps get an update on what Plunkett has up his musical sleeve these days. Last we heard, the former Athens, GA songwriter and bandleader was hanging his hat in Brooklyn, NYC.
These five tracks are culled from Plunkett & The Weight’s two out-of-print LPs. Serious twang in the vein of Dwight Yoakam, Steve Earle, and The Star Room Boys. Hard country highly recommended to those who like their edges rough, and their whiskey smooth. Obviously, I’m a big fan.
