The Weight

The Weight are a Brooklyn-based quintet that makes sincere-sounding Waylon Jennings-David Allen Coe inspired outlaw country and Creedence-Skynyrd-tinged Southern rock. These guys take their name from a song by The Band, so they’re not exactly shy about their influences. But there’s not a tinge of irony here, which is what makes this five-piece stand out from the derivative dreck clogging Bedford Ave these days, even if they’re not that original in the context of rock history as a whole.
