Many have joked about how Jacob Swanson plays really sad music. But is it less sad when played with a full band? No. It’s still really sad. However, that shouldn’t distract from the craftsmanship behind the songwriting nor the musical contributions of drummer Zach Anderson and bassist Matt Donoghue. Planemo formed in 2011 and plays a melodic style of down-tempo indie rock. With their first official release still in the works, they’ve given audiences a taste of what could be expected with demos and live recordings. As they drift in and out of activity their set always returns feeling polished.
