This 2012 release by Heavy Times is nonetheless politic. Featuring "I'm Single" as the lead on side-a, followed by "Unsolved Mysteries," then "Bath Salts" on side-b, Heavy Times delivery a quick 7inch worth heavy rotation. It's the ol' 'get in, get out, leave them wanting more' approach that HoZac Records is so good at.
The packing is simple, yet fitting. A v-fold cover with titles only, no credits, because it is all about the music. Black vinyl with a large cut hole, because this isn't a fucking art project (people), its rock and roll. Drink up.
"Unsolved Mysteries" bears great melody with some added production, and delivers that 'everybody gather together and sing along' feeling at the beginning of each verse that would make Kevin Seconds proud. Continuing the trend of stellar b-side tracks, "Balt Salts," digs into Heavy Times' dour side. With fetching guitar leads, and curious vocals, I can't help but reset the needle on this one again and again.
