Can I Get a Witness?

Newly added to the Sasquatch lineup: The Heavy. There was something on the Sasquatch website about Letterman loving them so much he asked for an encore. Which, frankly, didn't up their musical cred for me. But then I listened to them. Because that's what I do. I am an amateur musical researcher.
Apparently they are English but they are doing the whole weird southern gospel, neo-soul blues-rock thing way better than any weird southern rock bands that I know of (I don't actually know of any striving for that, but you know what I mean). I like to imagine that their show will involve a line of backup singers in sequined dresses with live snakes drooping over their shoulders and some classic backdoor evangelical moments. We will see.
