Heartbeater Record Release Today at Grimey's + Video for 'Dark Horse Rising'

Posted By on Tue, Oct 5, 2010 at 10:40 AM

Look out! Heartbeater's on the loose, and if the above video is any indication, they're prone to forced horseplay. That there is the brand-new video for "Dark Horse Rising," a tune that can be found on Heartbeater's fresh LP, Slow Waves. The boys will be playing a record release this evening at Grimey's, and I picked the hell out of it. Here is but an excerpt:

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.

The show is today at 6 p.m., and as always with Grimey's in-stores, it's free.
