Hungry Ears Eat... Black Planet

Self-described as 'funk fuzz pop', initial listens to the newest Cincinnati thang, BLACK PLANET and their new bandcamp offering... Secifically the track "A Room of Her Own"- is a stones throw mix between Frontier Folk Nebraska and psyche (or 'adellic') shoe gaze-or maybe, just maybe (to a lesser degree) rock-drone akin to the unstoppable mind-expanders,  Black Angels. Spouting cryptically Princess Ramona Rules The Black Planet the magnificent "A Room of Her Own" takes a great, sudden Iceage-ish turn about halfway through the jam but that's a good thing... This is some really good stuff... A truly fresh listen. Black Planet have their name-your-own-price (NYOP) release ready for you and plan on touring this May... But the question and concern remain... Are you ready? I doubt your commitment dear Thwart reader. Prove yourself.

RIYL: Iceage, Jesus & Mary Chain, Mardou, Post-Punk.
