The Seldon Plan

The Seldon Plan is a Baltimore-based band that plays “tuneful-wistful rock...” (The Washington Post) that is "literate, yet still youthful"(Allmusic). Currently comprised of Michael Nestor (guitar and vocals), Dawn Dineen (guitar and vocals), Dave Hirner (bass), and Mat Leffler Schulman (drums), The Seldon Plan has spent the last few years recording two acclaimed full-length albums and taking on an busy live performance schedule—including shows with The Stills, Matt Pond PA, Now It's Overhead, I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness, Explosions in the Sky, and Jet By Day. In 2003 The Seldon Plan released The Living Room EP, which quickly received airplay on commercial and internet radio stations such as KSCR and SOMAFM. When the EP received a review in Allmusic, interest in the band grew rapidly. The band's first full-length album, the critically acclaimed Making Circles, released in 2005, made its way onto a number of top-record of the year lists, including a selection as one of "the top 40 releases of 2005 "by The Big Takeover. It was also featured on NPR's All Songs Considered, Current TV, the lonelygirl15 series, and in the indie film "Closer to Midnight". The Seldon Plan released their second (and current) full-length The Collective Now on Magnatune in 2007. The Collective Now was quickly named one of the "Best Baltimore albums of 2007" by The Baltimore Sun, a top 40 record of 2007 by The Big Takeover, and a top 50 record of 2007 by Amie St. The Collective Now received national recognition when it was re-mastered and re-released in response to the "loudness wars" occurring in modern rock music and is currently featured on MTV-U.
