Heavy Deeds first formed as a band two years ago. But those two years got loaded with with life changes — jobs, projects, and relationships — that kept recorded material on hold. For some artists, the constant postponing would be a sign that the band just wasn't meant to be — but that never occurred to Chris Bierden or Chris Rose. Personnel-wise, Heavy Deeds sort of reincarnates the guys' old indie-rock band with Rose's brother Alex, Vampire Hands, along with a couple of new recruits, Sara Bischoff and Molly Harrington. Their debut EP, titled Light Lunch, is a sprawling five songs filled with warm guitars, reverberating synths, and group vocals deftly evoking the spirit of the late '60s and early '70s. It wouldn't sound out of place in rotation between Neil Young and the Band, and it's got summer anthems written all over it. With Is/Is, Night Beats, PHAROAHS. (Photo by Sarah Nienaber)
