EP REVIEW: NOT A PLANET – SMOKE BOMBS & CIGARETTES: THE HISTORY OF NOW

Not A Planet

Background
Nathan Corsi, an Akron, Ohioan, made his way to Kansas City after a featured role in a year-long documentary about life as a busker in New York. It wasn’t long before Nathan and Liam Sumnicht, drummer native to KC, hooked up to form Not A Planet. A rotating cast of bass players tagged in and out alongside the duo on national tours and local shows for years, but in 2012, William Sturges enlisted as a permanent player.

Strengths
Robust old-school pop-rock songwriting delivered with verve and gusto. Sympathetic production channels the organic 70s pop sound with an unapologetic affinity for that era.

Highlights
This 4-song EP should be listened to right through – from start to finish.

Sounds Like
Wilco, Jellyfish, Brendan Benson.

Bottom Line
Rock ’n’ roll traditionalists that prize authenticity above all else!
