Naming their band after a short story about a plane crash might have been a mistake. Because, for transatlantic, country-infused rockers One Eleven Heavy, it's been two years of trials and near-death experiences. One Eleven Heavy is lucky to be alive. And you only need to listen to the music on this, their brilliant second album "Desire Path" to understand that's how the band feels. Because it's a wry, occasionally biting, but always joyful celebration of human endurance and the ability to overcome. The musicianship is a step up from their raggedy, but already accomplished, debut, too. The album is laced with lush three-part vocal harmonies and two-part harmonized guitar licks, recalling those classic Allman Bros runs at the same time as it brings to mind timeless classics by Hendrix, the Stones and, of course, the Dead. For One Eleven Heavy, being miraculous is a goal worth striving for. And the only route to it is by the 'Desire Path.' Take it.
