HONEY BUNDLE - Honey - New Moody Judy & Love is Hard

There are quite a few bands or artists calling themselves Honey, but this one from New York City is the one you want to remember.  Featuring former members of Psychic Ills and Amen Dunes their new album, the trio’s second – “The New Judy Moody” starts off with the Hendrix-like jam rawk of “Wage Agreement” and then it’s killer rock and roll all the way through.

Take a song like “Dream Come Now“. It’s a buzz saw rocker with the heaviest guitars I’ve heard in a long time, and this is a trio!

Out September 29th on Wharf Cat Records, HONEY’S sophomore long player “The New Moody Judy” builds on their debut’s “hard edged slice of rock noise” to create an album full of the pummel and swing, rave-ups and comedowns, and ferocious riffs and rhythms previously known only to those who have witnessed the power-trio’s live set. Equal parts concision and brute heaviness, this is the sound of perfect rock and roll music – music that’s always on the edge of spinning out of control.

From the first single, “the pugnacious ‘Dream Come Now’ a barnstormer every bit as fiery as the album artwork”  to the tight jam giving way to a thrilling cascade of riffs that fuel the rush of ‘Hungry,’ HONEY give everything to the music on this release to deliver their most sonically diverse effort to date. As thematically cerebral as it is musically visceral, New Moody Judy is one of the rare albums that offers as much brain fodder for the lit majors as it does instant gratification for the guitar-heads.

There are huge arena riffs with odes to The Who, Misfits, Stooges, and even Hot Snakes to name but a few.


It’s out now on Wharf Cat Records.
