The album dropped in October, but I had held off on writing about the new effort from Mister Heavenly because there was no way to embed my favorite track, “Hammer Drop”. It’s been a minute since we heard from the supergroup, but the layoff didn’t hurt the product. The sound changed a bit and there’s less doom wop to my ear, but the band remains a nice indulgence off the beaten path.
“Hammer Drop” is one of those from Boxing the Moonlight that reminds me of my favorites on Out of Love. The track rolls through your headphones at a leisurely pace, wrapping you in it’s falsetto croon. As always, the mix of Nicholas Thorburn’s falsetto with Honus Honus’ gravelly approach is a dynamite mix.
