Rock Plaza Central is a Canadianmarker indie rock band. After a pair of glowing reviews from the influential music website Pitchfork they have recently come to prominence as a major indie rock band. Their independently released disc, Are We Not Horses (2006), made many top ten lists for the year, including #8 for CMJ Editor-in-Chief Kenny Herzog, Pitchfork staff writer Stephen Deusner and Americana-UK lead writer David Cowling.

Because the album did not receive an official US release until mid-2007, it made several of those year-end lists as well, including Magnet's "10 Great Hidden Treasures of 2007", calling it "2007's finest folk/rock find".

They are often compared to Neutral Milk Hotel and Will Oldham.

In early 2007, they received additional attention for their cover of the Justin Timberlake song "SexyBack".

Rock Plaza Central is now signed to Outside Music in Canada and Yep Roc Records in the US. They released Are We Not Horses internationally on April 17, 2007.

Their fourth album, ...at the moment of our most needing, was released on May 28, 2009 on Paper Bag Records.
