Joel Plaskett Emergency - Ashtray Rock

Joel Plaskett Emergency - Ashtray RockAfter his excellent solo album, La De Da, Halifax hero Plaskett is back with his Emergency band. The group’s latest, produced by Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar, Grady), is a mostly raw rock-and-roll record. The blistering “Drunk Teenagers” details getting plastered, suburban-style, while “Fashionable People” mixes riff rock and synth-pop elements to hilarious effect. But then Plaskett pulls out “Chinatown/For the Record,” a gorgeous ballad with acoustic guitar and orchestral strings. A prolific renaissance man.
