The Heavy-How You Like Me Now

This song has swag. I'm not talking about the Lil' B swag! swag! swag!, but real musical swag: real energy, real soul, real power. "How You Like Me Now" continues a style of music which is deeply rooted in the past, songs that borrow heavily from old-school soul and sunk, but with a modern edge. This minigenre, a genre that includes bands like Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears and Fitz & The Tantrums seems to be intent on taking styles of the past and injecting Tahrir Square energy into into them, an energy that makes it impossible to not wanna bust out your best soul two steps.

The Heavy are a band supposedly from Noid, England, although it seems strangely appropriate that a place with that name doesn't actually exist. Because with a jam like this it doesn't matter where they are from, where you are from, where you are, or whether you like soul music or not. This song moves to such a reckless beat, a beat flirting with chaos, that I dare you to not feel something after you hear this song. And if you do feel something, it's a jamandahalf.
