THE HEAVY SET
The Heavy Set is a Minneapolis rock band rooted in blues and alt-country, pushing Americana to its harder edges. The solid, heart-felt songwriting of Jake Ilika gets a grindstone treatment in The Heavy Set with guitar-forward echoes of Crazy Horse and Ryan Adams. Their forthcoming third record, The Highway & The Moon, drives their sound harder and into new expanses with a passionate, fluid genre-bending collection of eleven songs.
