    British soul group The Heavy have released a track in advance of their forthcoming How You Like Me Now EP. The tune, entitled "That Kind of Man," is a typically funky number with a distorted, lo-fi edge to it. All that fuzz grates on the ears ever so slightly, but the groove and soulful vocal are undeniable.

    The Heavy's How You Like Me Now EP will be released on iTunes through Counter Records/+1 Records on October 19th. Physical versions of both the vinyl and CD variety will be available to concertgoers during the band's North American tour, which starts October 16th and will last through November. The first leg, encompassing mostly east-coast dates, is a co-headliner with Mayer Hawthorne and The Country, while the second half, mostly west-coast dates, is solo. If you can't make it out, watch our filming of the band's Tribeca Y performance from earlier this year streaming here. -peter menniti
