Driving is one word to describe Maine-based tree-piece, Great Western Plain. Their most recent release,  Elastic Smile, was sent to us a few short weeks ago, and has been on repeat in the buffaBLOG offices. The first track on the album, “Thom,” is a fourteen minute post-punk voyage that fans of Cloud Nothings, The Medications,  or French Toast (and probably  dozens of bands coming out of D.C. in the early-to-mid 2000s) would really appreciate.
