By now maybe you have heard some rumblings about Office of Future Plans. They have slowly but surely been building up buzz over the past year or so with select opening slots and some low-profile headline gigs around town and in Baltimore. After opening for one of The Dismemberment Plan reunion shows last weekend and this week revealing their first recorded music in the form of an excellent 7″/digital single (pictured above), Office of Future Plans are poised to break-out as one of the most exciting new bands of the DC-Baltimore region.
There is a lot to get excited about here. First and foremost is that OoFP is the latest band put together by indie-legend J. Robbins. In these parts Robbins is considered indie-royalty for being in or founding several great area-based bands like…oh let’s see…Government Issue, Burning Airlines, Channels, Report Suspicious Activity, and Jawbox (just about the best 90’s band ever). To form Office of Future Plans, Robbins has enlisted some old DC/Baltimore music pals like Darren Zentek of Kerosene 454, Brooks Harlan of Avec, and rock cellist Gordon Withers. Together the four are creating some terrific angular, post-hardcore sounds that rank right up there with some of Robbins’ best.
