If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you know that we're HUGE Joel Plaskett fans. In a true mark of fandom, I was one of the only five people that showed up on a bitterly cold Sunday night for a Boston gig a few years ago.
This man has made some seriously great music, with his band Thrush Hermit, The Emergency, and on several solo albums. His latest album, Three, came out earlier this year in Canada and is massive -- it's a triple album, and although I have yet to hear it in it's entirety, I am sure it's as great as everything this man has touched. If you've ever wondered what Ted Leo might sound like if he came from Nova Scotia, then here's your chance.
