King Garbage

Heavy Metal Greasy Love

    King Garbage, with their contemporary take on American Soul, return with a new album, ‘Heavy Metal Greasy Love’, released via Ipecac Recordings.

    Long-time friends and GRAMMY Award-nominated producers Zach Cooper and Vic Dimotsis have quietly impacted pop, R&B and hiphop with production credits for everyone from The Weeknd and SZA to Ellie Goulding, Gallant and Billy Porter.

    In 2021, Vic and Zach co-wrote ‘Sing’ for Jon Batiste’s ‘We Are’. It gathered eight GRAMMY Award nominations, including Album Of The Year. They also penned ‘Sweeter’ (featuring Terrace Martin) on Leon Bridges’ ‘Gold-Diggers Sound’, which notched a GRAMMY nod in the category of Best R&B Album.

    It’s a taste of retro without being a reproduction. The music is crispy, searing, spacious, sandy and welded with perfect dimes at the seams.

    Breaking from the ‘rough and ruddy’ vibe of their first record, ‘Make It Sweat’, King Garbage incorporated a rock ‘n’ roll spirit within this soul sphere. They teased the album with ‘Piper’ and ‘Peanut Butter Kisses’ before revealing the single ‘Busy On A Saturday Night’. On the track, vocals hum barely above a whisper as clean guitar wraps around horns before the high register hook takes hold. It ends on a crescendo straight out of a Sixties cop show.

    Bass-y piano revs up ‘Monster Truck’, which Zach calls “somewhere between musical theater and classic rock.”

    Meanwhile, ‘Checkmate’ moves ice cold vocals and boisterous horns across the board. Saxophone, flute, and clarinet soundtrack a ‘Fargolike tale’ on ‘Snow’, unfolding “like what a big band should play in a strip club.” In the end, ‘Heavy Metal Greasy Love’ is as smooth as King Garbage are.

    For fans of The Black Pumas, Alabama Shakes, Daptone Records.
