Question. Who the hell is Steven Hessler? Answer. I have little-to-no idea, but he rocks. This renaissance man does poster art, album art, photography (all of it dope) out of Sacramento, and releases some way slinky-sexy-bluesy-garage rock on the side. Or maybe the art stuff is on the side… Anyways, he just released "Drunk Soul," which is the first single off his upcoming record Vol. 2 (his debut effort Vol. 1 was self-released this past January), and it ("Drunk Soul") is a dope track.
Think The Doors meets Kyuss meets early Black Keys. That should give you a good idea. Brutish drums, power(pain)ful vox, and slabs and slabs of quick drying magma-hot bass. What more could a guy(gal) ask for. Enjoy it, and some choice picks from Vol. 1.
