Merchants of psychedelic dreams and electric rock, The Heavy Medicine Band is lead by dark yet benevolent vocals, through ephemera of weaving acid-wash guitars and sympathetic drones of pounding drum and bass. "Heavy Medicine Band Make heavy rock informed by the blues and are wont to push themselves to psychedelic heights...They have a tight rhythm section holding things down, helping the band reach those highs without ever making the songs feel like endless jams. Vocalist/guitarist Keturah Johnson's vocal melodies were revelatory, which was especially the case on "Speak Light (Dear One)," where she held little back, flooring everyone in the room in the process." --Exclaim! (Michael Rancic, Megaphono Festival, February 2016)
