New music from the rocking duo out of Seattle. It’s The Grizzled Mighty with a new LP called Closed Knuckle Jaw. The Grizzled Mighty is a powerhouse blues-rock band from the Pacific Northwest. With just a guitarist/vocalist and a drummer, there’s a bunch of sound that comes out from the two rockers. The new album Closed Knuckle Jaw is packed full of party anthems, that have a sound similar to early Black Keys. The album starts off with a heavy hitter “Chantael” which immediately has a super catchy guitar riff. My favorite track from the album has to be “Miles Of Cocaine.” It is real gritty and has a wicked awesome guitar solo, along with singing about a bunch of cocaine. This band is a must see live as well, so check them out.
Duke Evers EP, Handful of Pennies starts with their single, “Lions” that grabs your attention immediately with catchy guitar chords and a drum rhythm that makes you just want to dance. This is feel good Indie Rock at its finest. Hailing from Seattle with a Blues/Pop mix that has a magnetic pull that draws you in and holds you hostage until the music stops. Duke Evers has an energy that will bleed into anyone’s soul and resonate there. The combination of Kyle Veazey (drums) and Josh Starkel (vocals/guitar) is a combination of pure musical bliss. Through the four track EP they show incredible diversity in range, tempo, rhythm, and originality. Their track, “Seaside” is incredibly catchy and is sure to be a favorite with Josh Starkel’s appealing, smooth voice and Kyle Veazey’s clean, upbeat drum hits.
The album has an enigmatic feel that is both unique to them while being strangely familiar. Handful of Pennies drops today so be sure to give it a listen, it is well worth your time.
