Mountains of sugar a well reasonably known to be something we should not eat? Then it is much more edible that mountains of sugar is an exciting album from the band Heavy Feather?

Roots rockers Heavy Feather are finally back with new music! Their upcoming sophomore album Mountain Of Sugarwill be released by The Sign Records in Spring 2021, with heavier 60s and 70s rock influences and amazing blues vocals at  the core of the release. The title track Mountain Of Sugar,

Heavy Feather’s first album Débris & Rubble (2019) was praised  by both press and audience, which spurred the band to go on tour of Europe. Now it´s time for their second album, Mountain of Sugar: an even rawer, heavier, and harder release than the previous one, but still with the roots rock and psychedelic touch holding it all together.

Mountain Of Sugar consists of 11 roots rock tracks oozing with a 70’s sound and feel, filled with attitude and raw vocals from blues singer Lisa Lystam (who along with guitarist Matte Gustavsson both involved with Siena Root) Catchy hooks and roaring guitar  riffs are based on influences from the greats of the 60s and 70s, drawing inspiration from  bands such as Free, Cream and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Just like their first album, this one was also recorded together with the producer Erik Errka  Petersson.

Favorite track: Where Did We Go».

Mountain of Sugar will be released April 9th 2021 on vinyl, CD, and digital formats via The Sign Records.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7405 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
