Heavy Traffic lays down sludgy, heavy jams

Heavy Traffic lays down sludgy, heavy jams

With a name like Heavy Traffic, you have to ensure that you're a band that's bringing down the heavy jams, and the Brooklyn-based four-piece definitely does not disappoint. Delivering stoner/doomy riffs layered with fuzz and grit, the band's psych-influenced vocals and blunted percussion make them a driving, unadulterated display of sludgy metal that stands out from the pack. With tunes this heavy, you can practically smell the oil pits and diesel fumes from here. Check out single "Medicated Bed, streaming below, and - if you dig it - mark your calendar for September 23rd, when they are scheduled to play Arlene's Grocery. - Olivia Sisinni
