Works Progress Administration: Musical Recovery Plan

From the land of unlikely yet cool musical collaborations comes the Works Progress Administration, featuring Sara and Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek, Glenn Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket, Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), and west coast utility players such as Greg Leisz.

Centered around weekly jams at the L.A. club Largo, the group has recorded an album and taken the show on the road this summer and fall. The video below is a promo reel that offers up interview clips from the principals and some tantalizing live snippets that indicate the group’s sound is an amalgam of 70’s country rock and 90’s alt-country sounds that should come as sweet musical relief to fans of the member’s other, mostly dormant projects.
