Plasticsoul - Demos of the New Album

Just like everyone else, I've been digging into the terrific compilation "Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock".    What a great album!  Certainly one of the highlights of the year so far.   While listening to the Fleetwod Mac track "Sentimental Lady" covered by Plasticsoul, I started wondering where Plasticsoul leader Steven Wilson was towards completing his new album.   

For the unitiated, Plasticsoul released one of the best Power Pop releases of 2008.  "Peacock Swagger" was a broad ranging album exploring mid-period Beatles territory similar to Cotton Mather.   Wilson and producer Brandon Schott have been trickling out demos of their new album for the last couple of years.  Here is a compilation of those tracks.  They sound great,  but I'm looking forward to the finished versions.
