CD Review: The Heights Band 

We Own the Sun

(facebook.com/theheightsband)

On this seven-song EP, the Heights Band nail classic-sounding, grunge-soaked, guitar-based garage rock. Singer and guitarist Dustin Dockery's raspy voice summons Eddie Vedder and Jack White, while the rest of the Akron band's thick, melodic power riffs reach stoner-dimension atmospherics. We Own the Sun's one pop-leaning cut, "Waiting," features a rolling bass line straight out of Motown that gets washed out with bendy guitar notes. Elsewhere, the Black Sabbath-like "When God Finds Out" balances a psychedelic slow section with frenetically paced choruses fueled by Ryan Dockery's guitar and antsy drumming by Richie Levers. Such great Heights indeed. — Alexander Hall
