    Rock Plaza Central released a stellar album earlier this year. With it, the Canadian natives proved that they are certainly no strangers to warm Americana textures. The album is an extraordinary trip through twang laden folk-rock.  This summer, we got a chance to catch them on the live circuit, and were able to ask Eaton a few questions about his music, resulting in an informative interview.

    While Chris Eaton and co. have recently finished up a tour with The Weakerthans in support of At the Moment of our Most Needing…, they’ve also managed to squeeze in some recording time to put an awesome track to tape. The tune, an awesome cover of Bob Dylan’s “I Want You”, is further proof of the band’s understanding of lush, folk-tinged textures. Eaton and RPC have created a slow swooning, lush, momentum building take on the lighter, more upbeat Blonde on Blonde original. Smooth strings and subtle banjo accompany Eaton’s raspy pipes, brightening up with light piano, before Eaton gets a little more passionate, even teasing the Beatles’ “I Want You” in the process.

    Eaton has revealed that he’s working on a new novel as of now, and in an effort to retain some creative sanity, he doesn’t plan on recording anytime soon. He does, however, have some ideas in that respect, but with a baby on the way and a novel in the works, he kind of needs to take a break from recording and touring for a while. Nevertheless, we hope to hear more from Rock Plaza Central in the future.
