Heaviness – Saddest Colour
Astounding! ‘No idea this band had any web presence beyond the myspace page!
Fans of Pship mixtapes from 07 and 08 will recognize the name: with Electro Group, Heaviness are my favorite neoshoegaze purveyors, rightfully located somewhere between MBV and Flying Saucer Attack. For me, those genre coordinates are serious-as-fuck, and of a significance that a different sort of person would refer to as “spiritual.”
In this live context, the MBV/FSA sandwich takes on an appropriately “EVOL”-ish tone of throbby knife-thrusting and screeching, getaway car guitars.
[h/t to BuiltOnaWeakSpot for turning me on to Heaviness so long, long ago.]
