Black Diamond Heavies 

“Everything is Everything” by Black Diamond Heavies, from A Touch of Someone Else’s Class (Alive Records):

Best paired with sticky summer heat, the sounds of Chattanooga, Tennessee's Black Diamond Heavies turn listeners into believers in dirty, destructive, sinful Southern blues. Made up of Fender Rhodes-bangin' monster John Wesley Myers and drummer Van Campbell, this two-piece makes its Alive Records labelmates the Black Keys look like shoegazers as the Heavies writhe and shake their way across their latest release, A Touch of Someone Else's Class. These dudes tour constantly, and their live show is a near-religious experience. Add Old Crow, devil horns and cutoff Daisy Dukes for full effect.
