Best Bands You’ve Never Heard of: Planes Mistaken For Stars

There aren’t words to properly explain Planes Mistaken For Stars’ last and most potent album. It’s very raw, gritty, in-your-face, and not always easy to listen to. Despite this, there’s something very beautiful about their music. Their sound tends to bring in elements of hardcore, folk, and metal (some post-rock even) into a strange globule of potent rock that is anything but boring. Sadly, I missed out on seeing these guys on their final tour because I was not yet 21 and could not get into the venue the gig was taking place at.

Here are some vids of this tremendous band:

These guys really knew how to deliver some badass rock and roll in an unusual package. Necessary (not recommended) listening includes “Mercy” and the compilation record: “We Ride to Fight! (The First Four Years)”

    This band just needs to get back together and make music until they’re old and grey. I’d give my left testicle for it.

      I hope Hawks and Doves at least winds up putting the album out. Apparently it’s almost done. The two original songs I’ve heard were both amazing. Folkier than PMFS, but still had some of that sound.

        You mean the ones I sent you or other songs?

        They posted a new one recently. On the blog-ish section of their Myspace they said there should be an album out around spring.

    Yeah, just checked it out. Not that great in my opinion. Hope the album is rockin’.
