Javelins Carry That Weight


Javelins, Heavy Meadows (Suburban Sprawl Music/Quack! Media, 2008)

MP3: “Heavy Meadows”

Heavy Meadows is a record soaked with sound. Yeah, the kinetic rhythms of singer/drummer Matt Rickle and bassist Julian Wettlin that made Javelins‘ first LP No Plants, Just Animals so dynamic are still there. But they take a backseat to guitarist Matt Howard’s jangly, tremelo-laden guitars and subtle variations on a theme of New Wave.

Music Vid: Javelins, “Out On the Sand”

Who’s got the sweet museum hook up, yo? Whoever it is, Javelins lucked out, as their new video for “Out on the Sand” — the first single from their upcoming Heavy Meadows — looks like a glossy documentary on taxidermy; staring a cool band, instead of old creepy dudes. The boys don’t seem to be too thrilled to be surrounded by a
