Amplified Heat Discography of CDs


In for Sin In for Sin CD (2004)
CD $20.59 Buy It  Details
Amplified Heat discography An amped-up garage rock trio with some blues, metal, and rockabilly influences, Amplified Heat debuts with the seriously overdriven In for Sin. Three brothers from Houston led by singer-guitarist Jim Ortiz, Amplified Heat isn't part of the fashion-conscious brigade of perfectly mussed rocker boys, having more in common with Memphis rockabilly-blues legends Tav Falco's Panther Burns or even the Reverend Horton Heat's psychobilly twang. Jim Ortiz's sore-throat growl of a voice delivers frankly lascivious cars-and-girls lyrics over distorted guitars, Gian Ortiz's fuzz-tone basslines, and Chris Ortiz's acrobatic, perfectly overplayed drums, turning slow and bluesy for the extended guitar workout "Just a Junkie" and going for Kiss-style '70s metal on "Fever," but most of the album consists of wild-eyed, punky rockers like "Roadrunner" and the title track. ~ Stewart Mason "My Place" is the second of Wally Lawder's 3 CDs, recorded in 2004 shortly after he moved to New Mexico. "In some ways, I see this as a complement to the Back to the Adobe Cafe CD. This is the mellower side of the two." Using his acoustic folk-pop style, this album moves from an almost folk feel to a soft jazzy pop. A good collection to ...

Amplified Heat songs Long known as a haven for antiestablishment musical talent, with an emphasis on left-wing singer/songwriters, Austin, TX, has also been the home for a profusion of revivalist hard rock bands in the 2000s -- including Young Heart Attack, Tia Carrera, Lions, the more decidedly metallic the Sword, and this review's subject, Amplified Heat. Following the release of their critically acclaimed LP In for Sin in 2004, Amplified Heat's long lost eponymous EP from 2003 was suddenly in high demand, prompting this 2006 reissue by their label, Arclight, with two tracks added as bonuses. In it, the three Ortiz siblings showcase their raw and rootsy hard rock, inspired by the likes of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Cactus, and of course ZZ Top, via rambunctious roughneck numbers like "Heart Attack," "Bi-Polar," and the hard-driving "Contrabandista." "She Drank That Wine" and ...
How Do You Like the Sound of That How Do You Like the Sound of That CD (2007)
CD Check Availability  Details
Amplified Heat CD discography Amplified Heat are an old-fashioned, unreconstructed blooze-boogie band in the 1970s tradition, given just enough of a modern twist to potentially appeal to the White Stripes/Kings of Leon audience. At heart, however, this Austin-based outfit are the musical sons of hopelessly unfashionable acts like Savoy Brown, Foghat and post-psychedelic Status Quo. Even when performing while fully dressed, singer Jim Ortiz sounds like someone whose preferred stage costume involves a bare chest and a buckskin vest. With feathers. Maybe a headband. A scan through the song titles confirms this spiritual homeland: "Tough Guy," "Rambler," "Man ...
