Last Planet on the Left
A skewed look at our post-punk-apocalypse, veteran singer, songwriter, and producer Digney Fignus offers up his best work yet, covering subjects from alien abductions to predictions from the Book of Revelations. A fun, rootsy romp from start to finish as Digney spices it up with his own special blend of musical styles ranging from acoustic funk to snake charmer revivalist, creating twelve unique snapshots of this crazy world we call our own. A well-known figure on the Boston music scene, Digney started out singing in the choir and playing the clarinet, but they were soon replaced by a guitar, amplifier, and microphone. He's no stranger to the airwaves. Digney's last two CDs received widespread critical acclaim, as well as national and international airplay. Trouble on the Levee (2006), and Talk of the Town (2008), both scored high on NPR, Americana, Roots Rock, and College Charts. "Last Planet on the Left further cements Digney Fignus's standing as one of the most complete and thought-provoking songwriters gracing the roots/Americana landscape. Lyrically positive and musically as brilliant as ever, these 12 songs have more hooks and lures than a fishing tackle box. If Last Planet on the Left doesn't get you moving, check your pulse and see if you're still alive!' - Reb Landers, The Alternate Root "...sophisticated blend of blues, folk, Cajun, and old-time music with a rock and roll heart...his ensemble's playing is always dead on - precise, spare, yet loose enough to serve the backcountry spirit the lyrics evoke." - Ted Drozdowski, The Boston Phoenix Digney skillfully skates past the delta and beyond, using African beats, gypsy rhythms, and stone-cold country harmonies to send the listener on an upbeat musical journey across the heartland and into outer space. A totally satisfying listen from start to finish, Last Planet on the Left will instantly have you singing along, clapping your hands, and stomping your feet.
