• tax the heat Change Your Position (CD, £10.75)

    label: Nuclear Blast

    Tax The Heat are a modern British band with a classic rock’n’roll sensibility. On their powerful debut album ‘Fed To The Lions’ was a sound inspired by the great bands of the ’60s – The Kinks, The Beatles, The Stones, The Yardbirds, The Who – but comparable to contemporary artists such as Jack White, Queens Of The Stone Age and The Black Keys. Now the band are getting ready to release their second album, ‘Change Your Position’, showcasing an improved contemporary cutting edge while still evoking that classic R&B sound as evidenced by pounding first single, ‘Money In The Bank’.Once again produced by Evansson, the songs are as sharp as their Savile Row dress sense with other highlights including the hypnotic ‘All That Medicine’, the pulsating ‘Change Your Position’ and the trippy ‘Symphony Has Begun’.
