HEAVY GLOW - Pearls & Swine And Everything Fine (CD)
United States | Rock
Heavy Glow from Austin, Texas are a classic rock trio and they deliver their rock with a fresh and modern vibe. Heavy Glow constructs Pearls & Swine on a foundation of fuzz-fueled hard rock, appointed with psychedelically-tinted blues and beautifully textured washes of Motown/Memphis soul. Simultaneously, a punkish verve cattle prods the retro rock vibe squarely into right now. Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine features Joe's exquisite bass runs while Jared plugs his guitar into rock's heavy history with nods to Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore and Tony Iommi. At the same time, melodic pop subtlety underpins the album's heaviest chord stomp moments; witness the swinging soul delicacy of "Fat Cat." It's all welded together by Jared's totally now perspective, his innate ability to focus his love of rock/soul/psychedelia through a contemporary lens to create Heavy Glow's modern classicism. Heavy and melodic, raucous & guitar-driven: That's Heavy Glow!
