Following a short intro, Sacramento’s Lightweight bursts out of the gate in true Iron Chic fashion with opening track ‘Whiskey Is Not A Jacket’. Gravelly vocals, driving rhythms, great melodies that are laced with melancholy and plenty of parts that beg to be belted out loud back at the band at one of their future shows.

Following the opening track, these lifelong friends double down on the remaining tracks telling tales of love, loss, depression, and - ultimately - redemption. They wrap the whole thing up in fifteen minutes, leaving you no option but to hit the play button again.

There are plenty of releases from well-known bands coming our way over the next couple of weeks and months, but make sure to check out ‘This One’s On Me’ when you have a sec. It would be a shame if this one would wound up lost in the shuffle.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
