If The Black Keys helped bring blues-rock back to the masses in recent years, Hot Bodies in Motion definitely adds something new and palpable to the genre. Based out of Seattle, they describe their sound as “Baby-makin’ mammal funk, laced with old-school blues roots” and it’s a potent concoction. They can jam out acoustically or turn on the fuzz and make some serious noise when plugged in. Ben Carson croons and can carry a song on its own, but the band is at its best when it slows down at the end of the song “Old Habits”. The entire band lets you know that old habits die hard and then emphatically punches out with an old school blues riff. It’s pure, unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll.
The video for “Old Habits” combines pizza, a hot chick and sharp objects to tell the twisted story of one late night at a pizza shop. Trust me, this is better than a jumbo slice.
