First Spin: Behold Heavy Cream’s Snot-Spackled ‘John Johnny’
A hot blast of hellfire from the Nashvillians' forthcoming, Ty Segall-produced full-length
It makes perfect sense that Heavy Cream landed on Infinity Cat Records, a label founded and managed by fellow Nashvillians Jake and Jamin Orral of JEFF the Brotherhood. They don’t sound like a band with much regard for their bodies or expectations. That and the mostly female quartet soak their pugnacious brand of garage-rock hellfire with a thick and smelly distortion closely related to that favored by their (figurative) bros in JEFF. “John Johnny” is a herky-jerky joyride from their forthcoming, Ty Segall-produced full-length, Super Treatment, due May 8. You can both hear and feel some rock’n’roll constellation take shape.
