"Plume" (Small Stone; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Detroit muscle rock meets German electronic rock in an epic battle on "Plume," a luxurious five-track escape administered by Giant Brain. 

The brainchild of Detroit scenesters that include the producers of some of Small Stones' most ornery acts and the ex-guitarist from Big Chief, this liberating release is laden with elegant grooves, trippy robotic beats, and a rigid yet flowing kind of rave-DJ-meets-rock band aura that the dues that engineer Volkswagons and those who hit up Oktoberfest can only normally fathom.

But don't fret. There's enough material for your Hawkwind and desert rock side to keep you interested here.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
