Jeff Plankenhorn with Ray Wylie Hubbard, "Tooth and Nail"
On May 4th, Austin-based guitarist Jeff Plankenhorn will release Sleeping Dogs, a new album featuring collaborations with Ray Wylie Hubbard, Patty Griffin and Emily Gimble. Hubbard lends vocals on "Tooth and Nail," a hypnotic psych-rock track that manages to allude to both the Bible and the Old 97's. Hubbard's deep deadpan and Plankenhorn's crackling guitar go together like thunder and lightning, a combination consistent with the song's ominous, stormy imagery. B.M.
