MP3 of the Week: The Year Million "Weight"

From Warsaw (Joy Division) to Rocket Baby Dolls (Muse), a change of band name can often pave the way for future success. So when the YEAR MILLION dumped the Spectator tag a few months back in favor of the H.G. Wells–inspired moniker, what followed was a slew of new progressive-rock compositions and a wave of new-band optimism. Their New Alliance–recorded homonymous debut album dropped last month, and the shine of that effort lies in blistering opening track “Weight.” Not shying too far from the Dredg and Queens of the Stone Age tree of hard rock, “Weight” builds over a caustic guitar loop before exploding into a mountainous six-string blast with a radio-ready sing-along chorus that could scale a skyscraper. The band hope to start playing around town later in the year, but in the meantime, grab the MP3 below:
