DC area improv/noise stalwarts The Plums have been together 10 years, and just released their stellar double LP last year. Nixon's Mess is another hefty 32 minute slab of riffs, droned out feedback squalls and loose grooves that proves their criminally under-recognized status.

I'm also in awe that they gave me the time of day when I asked Marc to release some of their stuff over Twitter....
