They can throw down on a rhythm for hours and make it sound fresh each time through, revealing new layers to their understated musical intensity with every round. Get down with them in this session, recorded at the dank basement studio at Serious Business Music in DUMBO. Heatweaver by Jaw Gems is available now.
