This is one band that is different enough to appeal to drone fans while still up-tempo enough to appeal to more mainstream listeners, & that in itself is a dazzling combination.

About Plumerai
I’ll go ahead & give away that the name Plumerai comes from a french lullaby about depluming a bird.  Plumerai is post-pop band from Boston.  Equally influenced by 80’s punk (The Misfits, Minor Threat), early 90’s british alternative (The Cure, Cranes, PJ Harvey), & modern art-rock (Radiohead, Gogol Bordello, Cat Power, Yeah Yeah Yeahs); the results are shoegazing guitars, Cat Power-esque style vocals, tight drumming, & driving bass lines – everything you could want from pop oriented music.

Slugging it out since 2004 going through line-up changes searching for the perfect band & tightening up on tours, they currently consist of Eliza Brown (vocals), Mickey Vershbow (drums), & brothers Martin Newman (guitars & keyboards) & James Newman (bass).  Brown brings sweet floating vocals to the mix.  Vershbow gives us dynamic drums with subtlety & strength.  Martin Newman provides the heavily reverbed guitars around which the songs are built. James Newman brings the percussive bass lines that help hold things together.

The shoe-gazey/dream-poppy foundations are still there, but it’s the strength of Elizabeth Ezell’s vocal performances & the richness & sophistication of the band’s songwriting & instrumentation that make “Your Guilty Prize” Plumerai‘s most mature & varied work yet.
