Get down with The Heavy

According to PopMatters, The Heavy's debut album "kicks Lenny Kravitz’s career to the corner and runs it over a few times for good measure. In one crucial sense, the Heavy are throwbacks. They’ve delivered a bold, uncompromising, barnstorming debut without regard for current trends, fashions, or indie cred. You can dismiss lazy comparisons to Amy Winehouse and 'dirty soul'. The coolest thing about Great Vengeance and Furious Fire is it’s too busy kicking your ass to think about just how cool it is."

You can check out some songs here, or for a while at least, listen to the whole thing.
