The Heavy Eyes - "He Dreams of Lions" on Kozmik Artifactz

The Heavy Eyes is a Memphis based psychedelic blues power trio including Tripp Shumake (vocals and guitar) Wally Anderson (Bass) and Eric Garcia (Drums). 

"He Dreams of Lions" is their third album, recently released on the excellent german label Kozmik Artifactz.  The album was mixed, mastered, and recorded by Matt Qualls at Ardent Sudios, Memphis, TN.

The band published his self-titled record in 2011 and it immediately laid the foundations for the trio on the heavy blues scene. Their sophomore album, Maera, was released in 2012 and was largely seen as an improvement of their already famous playing.  

So after three years of waiting, needless to say the expectations were high. But the band met them effortlessly with an album, probably their best to this day,  filled with hypnotic heavy riffs and fuzzy stoner jams. My personal favorite track: He Dreams Of Lions.

Purchase it here:

The vinyl version is plated & pressed on high performance  in Germany with matt laquered 300gsm gatefold cover. It comes in red marbled yellow (handnumbered mailorder version), transparent yellow or black.
