RIYL: Black Joe Lewis, James Brown, The Arcs

The Heavy are back! Soul, rock, blues and R&B are all elements that provide the backbone to The Heavy’s sound, and Since You Been Gone, the first single off Hurt & The Merciless, is another solid slice of propulsive, Heavy-style energy that should get your a** moving. By the way: if you can, try to catch these guys live if they hit your town. The last time I saw them they basically blew the roof off the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix.

Side note: there’s a standard, non box set version of the record available for less $ at the same “Buy Now” link if the $50 is just too crazy for your vinyl-buying budget.
