With influences ranging from William Faulkner to Palace/Oldham, Tom Waits and Van Morrison, RPC’s profile grew quickly after a pair of glowing reviews from Pitchfork, one being an 8.4 stating, “the music is so surefooted and evocative…accessible, supremely affecting, and unique.” Shortly thereafter they were on the cover of CMJ and were called “stars-in-waiting” by David Fricke at Rolling Stone. Their independently-released album also made many top 10 lists for the year. Rock Plaza Central has been on a tour of the US, and will return to the states in August.

Magnet on the new album:
“‘[RPC] deftly toed the line between a Dust Bowl-era country/folk road show and more modern, damaged rock brainiacs like Neutral Milk Hotel…the new album reveal[s] some fresh weapons in RPC’s arsenal. One thing that hasn’t changed is Eaton’s punishing singing, a strained vocal register he sometimes pushed to the point of self-flagellation…”
