« Meltface Video Performs Circuit Benders Ball @ Open Lot this Saturday | Main | NEW AOE SHIRT AVAILIBLE @ MELTSTORE »


That's right folks the new Heartbeater full length is available now thru meltface records as well as itunes, rhapsody, and amazon (though you should really buy thru bandcamp and not thru itunes and all those other greedy fat cats who snatch up all the pennies we make on every sale). Not to mention, soon to be the last record store on earth: Grimey's on 8th Ave. So go forth and BUY BUY BUY this fantastic sounding piece of wax, recorded to tape, mastered for vinyl, which comes with a free download card (so you can burn your own damn CD even though that shit is SOooooooo 90's).

"Heartbeater’s brand-new debut full-length, Slow Waves, is just the sort of release we Nashville-dwelling rock ’n’ roll fans want to hear. It’s hearteningly fresh and earnest, but saturated in all the right record-store-clerk-approved rock influences: washy but smart surf-rock noodling (“Dark Horse Rising”), grungy, riff-savvy college rock (“Blackout”), blistering, punk-tinged hard rock (“Heartbeater”), Southern grit (“M.I.A”) and dreamy, far-out psychedelia (“Vaporizer”). Dynamically, it doesn’t have a whole lot of dimensions — it’s really just booming low-end, two handy-with-a-lick indie-rock guitarists, a drummer who lays into the brass and lyrics about, you know, emotions. But next time one of those sequined-cowboy-hatted Okie tourists asks you that question we’ve all been sick of hearing for a couple decades now — you know the one, “You mean Nashville has music other than just country?” — feel free to tell them the following: “We have rock music. We have Heartbeater.” — D. Patrick Rodgers for The Nashville Scene

"Slow Waves is an album that combines garage-band-grunge with punk-apocalyptic-surf-rock. Heartbeater has created a cohesive piece of work that flows nicely from the intro to the final track." - Allison Thomas for The Nashville Wire
