The Coathangers / Heavy Cream
Merry Go Round / Toasted
Fans of The Coathangers are already accustomed to the beer-soaked, dance-inducing jams whipped up by bassist Meredith, guitarist Julia, keyboardist Candice, and drummer Steph, but on “Merry Go Round” the quartet swap instruments and knock out their most solid and catchy number to date. With The Coathangers raising the bar with their newest song, Infinity Cat Recordings artists Heavy Cream countered by contributing “Toasted” to their side of the split. With it’s big and bold drumbeat, driving guitar chords, sing-along chorus, and blown out production, “Toasted” not only sounds like a fitting addition to JEFF the Brotherhood’s record label, it sounds like the long lost rock n’ roll gem that first incited Joan Jett and Johnny Ramone to pick up guitars back in the ‘70s.
