Hey folks, 

Rock Plus+ is out, and we're a rock group on hiatus.  Seattle Weekly was kind enough to write some nice words about the record and Secretly Important was kind enough to premiere it.

Tapes are available from Halfshell Records.

Many many many many thanks to all who have supported us over the years.


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—it’s tricky in 2017 to make guitar-based music interesting, especially anything you could call “rock music.” The world has heard all the variations on three-chord blues riffs it can handle, folks, show’s (mostly) over—time to move on and try out something new. Heavy Petting seems to be winking at that fact in Rock Plus+whose title suggests this particular rock has a little something extra extra tossed in. It’s instrumental post-rock, but perhaps it’s also post-post-rock. Whatever it is, it’s undeniably transportive and intriguing to the ear. Guitarist Evan Anderson, bassist Evan Easthope, and drummer Derek Blackstone have conjured a sound that manages to allude to staple Northwest guitar tonalities (Modest Mouse’s quavering, loopy runs; grunge’s crunchy fuzz; Cascadian black metal’s opulent, oppressive darkness) without simply copy-pasting all their influences into a “new” document. Boldly, they’ve chosen not to dress up their music with the random sound effects and left-field samples that bog down most post-rock as well—they let the music speak for itself. The songs’ simply titled tracks, “New One,” “New Three,” and “New Too,” add up to a breezy 20-minute run time, but one that takes repeat listens to fully appreciate—mostly thanks to the constantly shifting structures that veer organically from breezy interludes to emotional asides and crushing riffs. Enjoy it while you can—this record is the band’s last before calling it quits for good.  ~Kelton Sears, Seattle Weekly
