These Wild Plains hail from Boston, not typically a hotbed of Americana-flavored roots rock. But the quintet will be representing the state of Massachusetts at Stagecoach this year, not Coachella, though they were equally at home playing CMJ. We invited them into the Paste Studio in New York last month for a stripped-down three-song set. You can listen to “Hey, to Clear the Air” the opener of their self-titled debut, in the player above or check out the rest of their set here:
“Waiting Around to Die”
