Episode Summary

Heavy Hometown
Since forming in early 2008, Heavy Hometown has made a serious impression on the Indianapolis music scene. These (mostly) local dudes manage to put together some incredible songs that combine a polished, composed sound with an intimate, bedroom-recorded feel. Divided between Indy and Louisville, the trio is made up of guitarist John Wood and drummer Corey Barnes (who also split up the singing duties) and keyboardist Eric Park. Their synth-laden garage pop brings to mind lo-fi legends like the American Analog Set, Galaxie 500 and at times Sonic Youth. The songs are thoughtful set pieces that sway from sad to hopeful and back again that grab onto you quickly and lure you down into their rabbit-hole. They self-released their debut album "Action Figures" last year.moreless
