Chubby
Is It Time (Gigantic)

By: Mike SOS

It's a silly name for a band with true rock grit to have, but maybe that's Chubby's point. This Boston-based quartet have the knack to deliver driving, heartfelt rock anthems like "Fight or Fuck" without the daftness of its mainstream counterparts throughout its impressive 11-track release. Songs like the wavering dynamics of "Sweet Song" or the hypnotically rhythmic "A Day and A Half" display an undeniable bass groove that is as sultry as intense, while the top of the music is both heavy and catchy. The obvious comparison to Chubby is probably the Foo Fighters, as both bands tackle rock with the same gusto, but Chubby contains a little more r&b backbone, permitting the band to be smooth and clever a bit more than Dave and company.
