Heavy Glow: Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine

Pears & Swine and Everything Fine is the soon to be released full-length debut from US psychedelic rock act Heavy Glow. Led by Jared Mullins (Guitars/Vocals), the band is rounded out by Joe Brooks (Bass), and Ryan Muller (drums). Fans of the classic 'power trio' sound made famous by acts such as Cream, Blue Cheer, Grand Funk Railroad, and the Jimi Hendix Experience will no doubt find much to enjoy here on Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine, and when you toss in some pop, blues, and Motown elements, it makes for an even more enjoyable ride. Tracks like "Love Ghost", "Fat Cat" and "Mine All Mine" bob and weave with plenty of funky hard rock swagger yet contain no shortage of hooks, while the heavy rock of "45 Shakedown" and "Domino (Black Flowers)" allow for Mullins to get into some serious 6 string pyrotechnics. Speaking of Mullins, he's got a great voice, soothing on the Hendrix inspired warm & chunky slow blues of "Hello September (Goodbye April)", and delivering a somewhat charming drawl on the crisp hard rockers "Nerve Endings" and "Headhunter", each one containing some fat grooves and tasty guitar licks.

This is a pretty fun album, and I can certainly see the potential mass appeal of Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine. The album has hooks, strong vocals, tons of groove, and solid musicianship. Be on the lookout when this one unleashes in June.
