Rid Your Garden
The Plutonics are a rare gem from the Philadelphia area that can only be described as hauntingly beautiful. From beginning to end, each song is inventive and commands attention as singer /songwriter Jacquelyn Micaletti weaves hypnotic webs of eerie melody over sparse, intrinsic guitar accompaniments. Adding ethereal atmospheric parts to the whole is Tom Cole on guitar. Using melody lines as a guide, Cole creates dynamic hooks and arrangements, setting apart great musicianship from mediocrity. This duo is complimented and grounded by the solid rhythm section of Dave Odell on bass and Scott Coble on drums. Odell and Coble create a solid driving union that elevates song structures to higher ground. Lavish two and three part harmonies add to the spectral sound making the band's sound driving, yet ethereal. The group's style of songwriting is both haunting and soulful with vocals that are refreshingly original.
