The Heavy Pets Loose, loud and likable, this Fort Lauderdale, Fla., band has plenty of hooks but enough drawl and swing to keep them from sounding too poppy. Like the Low Life, theyve gotten their sound by being a jam band with a tighter belt around guitar solos, giving them a diverse range without boring anyone. Therell be some stretches of instrumental breaks with organ flourishes and the quintessential wah-wah pedal, but expect more songs than just noodling around. $10.
