Plaxton and the Void :: Still Alive

Plaxton and the Void :: Still Alive

plaxtonBack in late 2012 Warsaw, Indiana’s Plaxton and the Void made their music debut with the great Ides. That album was filled with expansive, cavernous songs written with their Midwest roots in mind and proudly displayed. No trends or fad-filled songs; just songs written with heart-on-sleeve and ready to sing along to. Plaxton and the Void have returned to the album fold with the six song e.p. Still…

The Mondo reissue of the Drive Soundtrack on black vinyl. One of my favorite films in years and one of my all-time favorite soundtracks. Dark and majestic, with just the right pinch of 80s synth goodness.

Down In Front: Sunday Night at the Drive-In

Down In Front: Sunday Night at the Drive-In

Plaxton and the Void are ‘Still Alive’

Plaxton and the Void are ‘Still Alive’

plaxton

by E.A. Poorman

In the quaint little seaside town known as Warsaw, IN there lives a band called Plaxton and the Void. You know of them? Well, you should if you don’t.
