CD Review: The Inclined Plane Aims For The New "Frontier"

From Hartford, CT comes The Inclined Plane with their new album “The Backwards Frontier” on Popular Wallpaper Recordings. The album contains 11 home recorded songs that expand well-beyond the basement. Their sound tries to capture the mind-expanding, prog-rock sounds of the 60’s and 70’s with a touch of modern flair.

The songs “Little Shifts” and “Wireland” add a bit of psychedelic rock to the band’s overall indie sound. The acoustics of “California Amps” sounds like it came from the shores of San Francisco in the summer of love, while “New Wave Prison Break” sounds like an underground, modern rock masterpiece. The album closes with the ambient, relaxed flow of “Take My Brain.”

Check out for more information on this underground indie band.
