Clear Vinyl. Anyone who grabbed hold of the recent 'Alive in my Mouth' LP from ex-Baltimore trio Heavy Winged will know just how essential their tunes are. Made up of the classic bass, drums and guitar combo, the noise they generate is anything but predictable - the guitars rasp and drone, the bass bubbles and resonates and the drums rise and fall like tidal waves hitting a doomed continent. This is not your average white band, and 'Waking, Shaking' is possibly their finest release to date as they dial their sound down a little bit and reign in the mudded noise they made their name with. The A side 'Tidal Blackness' even sees frenetic drummer Jed Bindeman (last seen on Xela's 'In Bocca Al Lupo') removing all sense of rhythm in favour of 'washes' of percussion that accompany almost beautiful guitar and bass drones. Don't worry though, the second side sees the return of those characteristic hyper-fast blast beats and the band crumble their pitiful surroundings with a sheet of acidic noise. Heavy Winged might not have the profile of Lightning Bolt or Wolf Eyes, but to these ears they're one of the best bands in the noise genre operating at the moment. Hell, it might not even be noise any more at all - just buy it.
