My TurnTable.fm friendsie, Justin, told me that I need to listen to Amasa Hines, "the best band in Little Rock." I told him to prove it because we all know that the best band in Little Rock is The Coasts. Justin then sent me a link to this video. Halfway through the first song I was pissing blood because the soul oozing out of this group kicked me in the gut hard and repeatedly. Think James Brown meets the Black Keys. We may have a tie atop the ‘Best Bands in Little Rock’ list.
Amasa Hines is currently working on their first album which we will be sure to check out once it is released. In the meantime, they have a nice collection of live videos on YouTube. See more here.
