Atticus Binch Familiar as that old flannel shirt on a cool, crisp autumn day. This album feels like a respectful nod to Jer ;) Favorite track: Old Hope Chest.

Bucky Anything tagged with the 'Cosmic American Music' descriptor has my attention and One Eleven Heavy holds mine throughout the entire album. Too psychedelic to be labeled country, too Southern to really compare to the Greatful Dead, and too rock n roll for the rest. Guitars, flowers and skulls unite. Bought the vinyl through 4 tracks and I'm confident it was the right choice.

J. M. Hart aka rowjimmy Refreshingly fresh while still familiar as an old pair of shoes. Proper non-jamband guitar rock that jams. Great lyrics and playing abound and are shot through with Americana and bit of southern swing. One of my favorites from 2018. Favorite track: Valley Bottom Fever.

about

‘Music From Big Pink or Workingman’s Dead being deconstructed by Royal Trux.’ *** MOJO

‘Sounding somewhat like The Band and Crazy Horse with a smattering of roots-era Dead, One Eleven Heavy is centred around a veritable roster of players… It’s organic, joyous, upbeat and natural.’ **** Shindig!

'An unabashed, triumphantly affectionate recreation of what Gram Parsons called Cosmic American Music - the country, folk and blues-informed psychedelic rock of the late 1960s and early 70s.' The Wire

‘It swings on a revolving door of goofball riffs, spun up and spun around all dizzy from an elastic rock and roll boogie.’ NPR

‘Taps into a collective consciousness of what was actually “classic” about rock, without being dictated by what was pressed, sold or spun through the static crackle of radio. This echoes the ’72-’74-era Grateful Dead as it was lived in the room, and not as it was felt from the runout.’ Raven Sings The Blues

'On its debut album, Everything’s Better, rock & roll combo One Eleven Heavy weave together various threads of choogling psychedelia —some Dead here, some Neil Young there, more than a little NRBQ and Little Feat — into a thoroughly joyful statement.' Aquarium Drunkard

‘It shakes wilder than a stoned hippo... If this had happened in 1992, it would be out on Sony and advertised all over the world.’ Was Ist Das

'Starts out sounding like the Doobie Brothers colliding head on with Little Feat and then dives off into the kind of jazz-flecked guitar, bass and percussive jam that the Hampton Grease Band once made all their own.' Terrascope

‘Nothing here feels like genre exercise, and while the band may not — yet — have put in extensive time on the road, they sound like a group that has.’ Dusted

‘One Eleven Heavy has... adeptly mined the magic formula first introduced on Big Pink, mixing sturdy song structures with breathable interludes, loose harmonies and world-class chops.’ Void Magazine
