FDJ Plantation play alt- rock that would of not of sounded out of place in Seattle circa the mid 80's.That said don't write these guys off as copyists (even though "Lost Dog" unashamedly lifts Nirvana's "Come As You Are" riff) there is enough here to prove these guys have their own thing going on. The vocals are superb with a touch of Vedder meets Staley about them and the bass player is a monster!
Big thanks to fellow Bandcamper Ana for the heads up on this! Favorite track: Been This Far.

Ana This one was a long time coming, but well worth the wait. In terms of influences, if you would conceive of a scale of Black Sabbath to Alice in Chains, Plantation would be sliding to and fro, paying homage to one, then the other. Well...perhaps more obviously to the latter.
They play blues inspired, groove laden, bass-heavy hard rock. Complete with a vocalist you're going to love. Favorite track: Painted Desert.

about

"Out of the Dark" is the debut EP from Philadelphia based Grunge rockers Plantation. This album was recorded at Milkboy Studio in Philadelphia, PA with Karl Petersen (Miley Cyrus, Usher, Michael Jackson) over the course of just 4 days. Often drawing praise for their song writing which blends elements of Stoner Rock & Grunge and powerful vocals, they have been compared to rock royalty such as Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, TOOL, Black Sabbath, KYUSS and Queens of the Stone Age.

Track Name: Painted Desert
Painted Desert
Music: Patrick Fiore
Lyrics: Corey Presner


Free the Mind
self doubt controls us from inside
the heat is fear
siphoning all that keeps us alive

Leaving all the chains behind now
I dont have a lifetime to waste
looking to a new direction
no turning back now i embrace

Lose the Hate
only love can paint this desert of pain
deep beneath the soil
is the water that will fuel your gain

Leaving all the chains behind now
I dont have a lifetime to waste
looking to a new direction
no turning back now i embrace
Embrace

Leaving all the chains behind now
I dont have a lifetime to waste
looking to a new direction
no turning back now i embrace
Embrace
Track Name: Been This Far
Been This Far
Music: Patrick Fiore
Lyrics: Corey Presner

So the Wind is blowing against me
debris is blinding my eyes temporarily
Im trying to hold my place but i hit the ground
I cant stop myself from falling down

all this misfortune is plaguing me
time and time again its what i see
but ive been down this road and ive been this far
Have to keep on going i have no time to stall

each night and day takes on a new idenity
it seems i will never get used to what awaits me
but its the only path ive known
My only way to feel Free

all this misfortune is plaguing me
time and time again its what i see
but ive been down this road and ive been this far
Have to keep on going i have no time to stall

Im bidding my time
as i push it all to the side

Time is not on my side
I keep on pushing
Yet i dont know why

all this misfortune is plaguing me
time and time again its what i see
but ive been down this road and ive been this far
Have to keep on going i have no time to stall

Im bidding my time
as i push it all to the side

all this misfortune is plaguing me
time and time again its what i see
but ive been down this road and ive been this far
Have to keep on going i have no time to stall
Track Name: Lost Dog
Lost Dog
Music: Patrick Fiore
Lyrics: Corey Presner

Lost and alone i have traveled so far from home
just wondering now where have you gone?
these memories are not coming in clear
and i can barely see your face now my dear
Just look my way and tell me how it will be ok

show me the way when i close my eyes
I am a little bit broken so please take your sweet little sweet time
and i am slowly running you in circles
and I believe it shows

Lead the way and i will comply
slowly burrowing we can make it to the other side
and you always answered the call
when i needed it most
You gave your all

show me the way when i close my eyes
I am a little bit broken so please take your sweet little sweet time
and i am slowly running you in circles
and I believe it shows

show me the way when i close my eyes
I am a little bit broken so please take your sweet little sweet time
and i am slowly running you in circles
Circles
Track Name: Slow Down
Slow Down
Music: Patrick Fiore
Lyrics: Corey Presner

run and hide
the illusion that leaves our blinds closed tight
and have you ever really wondered why oh why oh why

I can see the world pass through these eyes
and when you slow it down it loses its disguise
underneath it all its so frightening to think
what some have become

I need a new lead to set my path on
there is so much more than we could ever ask for
Taking the time to soak it all in
just dont stay too long or you will drown in it

I can see the world pass through these eyes
and when you slow it down it loses its disguise
underneath it all its so frightening to think
what some have become

I can see the world pass through these eyes
and when you slow it down it loses its disguise
underneath it all its so frightening to think
what some have become
Track Name: Subversive
Subversive
Music: Patrick Fiore
Lyrics: Corey Presner

trying to make sense of why youre in my life
was i too strong when i held on
or too weak to let go
I just dont know

trust was my gift to you
but if i only knew

you have no reason of why you will see me this way
and why it will never be the same

trust was my gift to you
but if i only knew
but its what i give its what i gave
all of the attention you were not deserving
No dont try to hide your crimes
you have no alibi

Trust was no gift for you
Now that i know it is really is just nothing new
but its what i give its what i gave
all of the attention you were not deserving
do not hide your crimes
you have no alibi

Lyrics: Corey Presner


I am just a little one
Neglected as it may seem
from my mother sun
No rays of sunshine flow on me

Pick me up when i Fall
Pull me out of the dark
Shine your light down
all over me Im dying from the lack of light
within my sight

does she know i am here
Does she even hear my cries
Mother sun mother sun i am here
dont leave me to die

Pick me up when i Fall
Pull me out of the dark
Shine your light down
all over me Im dying from the lack of light
within my sight

i feel like this has been going on for far too long
and i wonder if ill ever see the sun

The ground is so cold
from where i stand and where you should be
I am feeling so low
when you will notice me
The ground is so cold
To where i stand and where you should be
I am feeling so low
when you will notice me

Pick me up when i Fall
Pull me out of the dark
Shine your light down
all over me Im dying from the lack of light
within my sight

I feel like there is this darkness deep in my chest
and once it grabs ahold it will never let me go

Wake up young fool
before you die
