I’m always happy to see Zeus play in Hamilton. Not only do I love their music and think that they are fantastically talented musicians, but they are also some old friends so it is always nice to see them stopping through town on their tours.
Their debut album Say Us was released in February 2010 by Arts and Crafts and is A-mazing. At their show last week at the Casbah we got to hear some newer songs that I hadn’t heard yet, and they did not disappoint. Their next album is set to be released in early 2012 but they have been releasing multiple 7″s throughout the year. If for some reason you have yet to listen to Zeus you are missing out on something really special. You just need to listen.
One of my favourite songs off of Say Us is Heavy on Me. There are instrumental harmonies that climax into an orgy of solid rock godness. If I were in the band I’d feel like a total rockstar playing this song.
