Heatbeater featured on new We Own This Town Comp

greg is totally on the cover too! rock that sexy frontman skill!

also thought i'd repost some other nice things people had to say about heartbeater:

beat it up: Heartbeater


"i will lead you astray, when youre tired of straight lines"

these are the kind of tempting lyrics you get from Heartbeater, 3-piece (now 4) rocknroll band straight outta Cashville, TN. they recently released their 1st self-titled ep on Meltface Music, which was recorded @ the glorious Toy Box Studio.

Heartbeater offers a solid sound on the 4-song record; permeated w/ thick bass lines, driving rhythms, layered guitar solos, & canopied in hazy reverb flowing from vintage tube amps. lead singer mabry pens crafty lyrics w/ memorable melodies, leaving remnants of songs stuck in your head for days.

after a couple listens you can start to pick out a subtle but potent concoction of influences: 1 part nirvana, 2 parts pixies, 1 part stooges, & a dash of black lips. that being said, they dont truly resemble these predecessors outright. instead, they blend sounds & ideas of the aforementioned groups to coin their own style of punk, surf, & garage rock.


the 3rd track "lead you astray" is the slowest song on the ep & my personal fave. it starts to build around 1:35, where a cello & electric guitar feedback swells into a huge sound bubble, then bursts, resulting in the heaviest jam on the album.


mp3 --> heartbeater - lead you astray

you can download physical copy of the album (limited-edition, hand block-printed) for $5, or download it digitally for free on their Band Camp page.

    I have no credit, and my buddy has bad credit. We are going on a trip in a few months and need to apply online to get a credit card. Mastercard or Visa. Anyone know where?
