The Heavy - The House That Dirt Built

Counter Records, 2009

This album goes all over the place, switching between hard funk, retro-rock, soul, reggae, blues, indie and more. “How You Like Me Now?” is a killer track and the rest of the cd is pretty good!

"Every band benefits from a well-defined sense of purpose. Even if you aren’t a big fan of the Heavy’s music, you’ve gotta love their mission. The Bath, England, quartet bash their way through classic soul, funk, and rock with a visceral, apocalyptic intensity that means to right all the musical wrongs Lenny Kravitz has committed over the past 20 years. Rarely has a band been so appropriately named. It’s all heavy with these guys. Heavy soul. Heavy funk. Heavy rock. Even the breezy folk-pop numbers and the ballads mean business." - PopMatters

LIYL: James Brown, Shawn Lee, Black Mountain, The Sonics, Jimi Hendrix, Black Keys, Clutch, Rolling Stones
