Big Bad Wolf – The Heavy

I can’t get enough of this song. It’s gritty rock and roll at its finest. This band channels old school soul and classic rock, then blends it to sound like some retro garage rock band, ala The Black Keys or The Strokes, but more emphasis on the soul and the rock. The horns add a layer to this song that would otherwise just be awesome, not extra-level awesome. The drums provide an excellent beat (it actually sounds like keyboard percussion to me? But I don’t know; it just sounds “produced”) and the guitar is un-notably absent for the most part. Again, it’s the horns. They are the melody, the riff.

As I often say, you just need to click the link because my description will not do it justice.
