Confidence Man

Our latest signing Confidence Man from Australia recently released their debut single for Heavenly, ‘Bubblegum.’

Listen to ‘Bubblegum’ on SPOTIFY | PURCHASE ON ITUNES.

“One taste and you’re infected. Symptoms include sassy sing-talking, howling and boogie fever.” – Triple J

Andrew Weatherall has remixed the track, which you can download for free. It’s premiering over at Clash Magazine:

Australian four-piece Confidence Man are already cult heroes in their native land, part of a new wave of groups with psychedelia running through their veins.

Freshly signed to Heavenly, Confidence Man have unfurled their new single ‘Bubblegum’ and it’s a chewy sensation that comes packed with flavour.
Out now, legendary producer, crate-digger and explorer of fresh aural dimensions Andrew Weatherall has stepped in on remix duties.
An expansive, baggy-tinged exploration of the connections between indie and electronics, it’s a trip in every sense.

The nagging guitar line and playful vocals recall Tom Tom Club, while the acid-tinged synth work builds into something entrancing.

Confidence Man will also make their UK live debut this summer with three London shows & an appearance at The Great Escape Festival.

Saint Etienne have announced details of their new album ‘Home Counties.’

Saint Etienne - Home Counties

Saint Etienne have announced details of a new album titled ‘Home Counties’ which will be released on Friday 2nd June.

The record contains 19 brand new ‘tracks’ inspired by our bitter-sweet relationship with the eponymous shires that have always been part of our lives.

A note from the band:

We recorded it in the summer and autumn of 2016 and it’s co-produced by Shawn Lee of Wall Of Sound and Young Gun Silver Fox fame. The cover design comes courtesy of our good friend and artist Scott King.

Sarah Cracknell says: “We had so much fun writing for this album, drawing influence from our teenage years growing up in the home counties. Bob, Pete and I led almost parallel lives while I was in Windsor and they were in Surrey, developing our passion for music and London. Shawn Lee was a joy to work with, he’s a wonderful multi-instrumentalist who seemed to have some kind of telepathy with us and translated our ideas perfectly. The record is quite varied in styles and brings together a little something from all our past albums whilst sounding completely new.”

Bob Stanley says “Suburbia’s anonymity is exactly why it’s a source of inspiration. They said it couldn’t happen here — and it didn’t.”

Whilst Pete added “We took a ride and ran with the dogs”

As a taster of what’s to come we’re streaming a special preview song from the album entitled ‘Heather’ here.

LISTEN TO HEATHER HERE

You can pre-order ‘Home Counties’ on a limited edition gatefold double vinyl, CD and of course cassette — with some very exclusive extras — from Saint Etienne’s official store here.

The band will do a full UK in June with three special shows to warm up in May.

H.Hawkline has announced his new album ‘I Romanticize’ with a new track ‘My Mine.’

H Hawkline

H Hawkline has announced details of his new album titled ‘I Romanticize’ to be released on June 2nd. Have previously teased with the track ‘Last Thing On Your Mind,’ Loud and Quiet Magazine have announced the record with a new track ‘My Mine.’

Los Angeles is a long way (roughly 5,300 miles) from the quaint Pembrokeshire market town of Narberth, north Wales, but those were the opposing destinations H. Hawkline retreated to in order to record his freshly announced new album, ‘I Romanticize’. You don’t find castle remains and sweet teashops in one. And you definitely don’t find many topless roller-skaters in the other.

Anyway, for his new album Huw Evans had good reason to journey to the east coast. It was to reunite with long-term collaborator Cate le Bon, who’s based there now. She forms part of the band who perform on the new LP’s 12 tracks, along with Warpaint‘s Stella Mozgawa and composer Josiah Steinbrick. It’s co-produced by Samur Khouja.

This has been the first record I’ve made where I’ve felt as if everything came completely naturally, like post that comes with a handwritten address,” says H. Hawkline. “To my ears it’s pretty accessible pop music, but maybe there’s something wrong with my ears.”

The Orielles release debut single ‘Sugar Tastes Like Salt’ on Heavenly Recordings

Halifax three-piece The Orielles have released their debut single ‘Sugar Tastes Like Salt’ on Heavenly Recordings — an eight-minute-plus burst of spatial-funk that in part recalls both ESG and fellow north-west pioneers A Certain Ratio. It was produced by Marta Salogni.

Sugar Tastes Like Salt’ is premiering on DIY, who say “the track is a sprawling, unexpected thing, moving through pulsing post-punk to twitchy ESG-style brooding dance beats and back out. Lyrically, meanwhile, it references Tarantino classic Deathproof, lifting the line ‘Well, ain’t you so sweet that you make sugar taste just like salt’ to throw a darkly cheeky extra flavour into the mix.”

Amber Arcades has released the new video for her latest single ‘It Changes’. Directed by Ben Clarkson, the clip merges colourful lyrics with a montage of images.’

Annelotte says of the track, “Everything changes, all the time. You think that when starting something new you can kinda tell which way it will go, but you never do. I always try to aim for constancy and stability but things always get messier than I foresaw. And hey, maybe that’s actually what makes it worthwhile.”

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE:

Following on from the success of her debut album last year, Amber Arcades are releasing a new EP titled ‘Cannonball’ which will be out early this summer. The EP will feature the reworking of Nick Drake’s classic ‘Which Will’ which was a highlight at festivals last summer & the current single ‘It Changes.’ Plus, one of the tracks on the EP features vocal from Bill Ryder-Jones.

About the EP as a whole de Graaf explains: “I’m so happy to be releasing these tunes. We had two days off in New York on our tour last September and we recorded them in that time. I’ve thought about postponing their release and waiting till I have more songs to make it into a full record, but I actually feel like they fit together wonderfully as an EP and am glad they get to be out there in this form.”

Out on June 2nd, 2017 and released on vinyl as well as digitally. The Heavenly emporium will have exclusive signed vinyl.

Mark Lanegan Band releases his new single ‘Beehive’. Listen here.

Beehive - Mark Lanegan

Mark Lanegan Band have a new single titled ‘Beehive’ ahead of the new album ‘Gargoyle’ which is released on 28th April.

LISTEN TOBEEHIVEHERE:

“Compared to the wizened post-blues that Lanegan usually makes these days, this one is a relatively straightforward riff-rocker, one with a huge melody that recalls Lanegan’s Screaming Trees days. It’s also a grand and catchy and anthemic rock song, the type they don’t make very often anymore. I very much recommend clicking play below.”
Stereogum

“The track opens with a swarm of guitars getting increasingly closer before some snapping drumming breaks it up into a forward march. With the music rising and falling like honeybees dipping in the wind, Lanegan sings in his low grumble of a voice, “Scenes of dying love/ In my head buzzes a bee’s nest/ Hanging down from above/ Everywhere I look it’s a bummer.”
Consequence of Sound

“The lead single is “Beehive,” whose deadpan psychedelia is sneakily addictive.”
WNYC

Plus, you can listen to ‘Nocturne’ from the record here.

Heavenly Sign Confidence Man who release their debut single ‘Bubblegum’

21

We’re excited to announce that we have signed Australian four-piece Confidence Man.

The band captured the attention of Australian radio station Triple J last year and secured a spot on their 2017 One’s to Watch list.

“One taste and you’re infected. Symptoms include sassy sing-talking, howling and boogie fever.“
– Triple J

It was a simple case of love at first listen”, Heavenly boss Jeff Barrett tells CMU. “Like hearing ‘Groove Is In The Heart’ for the first time. It was a joy of joys to discover that even after all these years I could still feel intoxicated after hearing a pop song”.

We’re delighted to have the band on Heavenly as they reveal their debut single ‘Bubblegum.’

Bubblegum’ is a joyful slice of imperfect pop, with flirty flutes, baggy grooves and sassy vocals. The track was mixed by Patrick Wimberly (Chairlift).

LISTEN TOBUBBLEGUM HERE’:

LISTEN TOBUBBLEGUMON SPOTIFY.

This song will become your high-energy voltage whenever you need a little pick me up. Crashing percussion and a walking guitar jolts the listener into the song from the very beginning. The call and response of the male and female vocals perfectly places the song in a state of childlike whimsy.
– Purple Sneakers

It’s a bouncy, very cheeky bit of retro-fun. — ABC

The band have caught the attention of fans with their infectious live show supporting Chairlift and an appearance on the coveted Triple J unearthed slot on Laneway Festival, Brisbane. This spring the band will get crowds dancing with a run of European dates, which will be announced soon…

Temples release their new video for ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’

Temples

Temples have released the new video for their latest single ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten,’ directed by James Beale. It shows the band capturing live footage of a diverse cast of characters.

Interview Magazine premiered the video:

“As the adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, so when taken properly, it supposedly captures the essence of its subject in a split-second. In psychedelic pop-rock band Temples’ new video for their single “Strange or Be Forgotten,” which premieres exclusively below, characters undergo the intimidating process of having their photograph taken, which reveals their inner conflicts and creative urges with every click of the shutter. Some subjects are shy and hold back, some smile, some dance, and one even gets undressed.”

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE:

“The striking attention granted to each subject makes for a visual remarkable empathy.“
- Stereogum

As Temples themselves stand by in a tunnel and beam professional photo and film equipment outwards, a series of (very) diverse characters come forth and strike poses as the camera moves back and forth slowly. It’s their time to shine, hoping you’ll remember them after the clip itself is ended.
- DIY Magazine

Throughout the clip for the cut from their forthcoming sophomore album Volcano, the band conducts quasi-interrogations with creative types who range from strongmen to performance artists. Each of their expressions are as distant as James Bagshaw’s lysergic vocals, which creates an intimate but emotionally guarded atmosphere that’s compelling if not quite dynamic.
- Paste Magazine

Interview Magazine chatted to Temples James Bagshaw about the video and the making of the new record ‘Volcano.’ Read the interview here.

Volcano’ is out on Friday 3rd March.

The UK independent record shops have a limited run of orange vinyl.
Available to pre-order at Resident | Drift | Rough Trade | Jumbo Records | Piccadilly

“Pop music that is catchy, instant and accessible to everyone from teenage girls to ardent record nerds.”
★★★★ Shindig Magazine

“James, Tom, Adam and Sam have made the perfect follow up which will not only win over fans of psychedelia but should gain them new fans too.”
★★★★ Record Collector

“From the moment the fairground-organ-propelled opener ‘Certainty’ sets sail, Adam Smith’s keyboards add layers of intrigue and more magic than Temples ever seemed capable of.”

When they let loose on Celebration they’re an impossibly addictive proposition and with Oh The Saviour and (I Wanna Be Your) Mirror, they have their very own status-changing anthems.”
★★★★ Q Magazine

“Their screwball pageant of glam stomp, Broadway musical, and driving synths make it clear. Temples aren’t stuck in the past, they’ve glimpsed the future.”
★★★★ Mojo Magazine

“Volcano is full of expertly crafted pop while retaining Temples’ trademark psychedelic sound; a leap into the future from a band firmly rooted in the past.”
★★★★ Dork Magazine

Jono Ma Remixes Temples new single ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’

Temples Strange Or Be Forgotten Jono Ma Remix

Jono Ma has remixed the latest Temples single ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’ which Thump have premiered:

Australian producer Jono Ma, of Future Classic-affiliated band Jagwar Ma, today shared his “Even Stranger Version” of English psychedelic band Temples’ recent single “Strange Or Be Forgotten.” The track is organized as an extended groove, alive with hums and clangs growing across its surface like mold spores. After it builds to a chaotic fever pitch, the mist eventually clears away for a blissed-out two-chord progression in accompaniment with Temples’ original song’s chorus.

In an enigmatic statement over email, Ma gave some mythical background on the dance-floor bomb.

“For centuries the Temple of Panthera Onca has been a source of moral guidance, growth and exploration offering charity, protection and Shelter to those in need of repentance, salvation and salivation,” he wrote. “This most recent of messages from the Modern Temple of Jaguar preaches patience, abstinence of a kind, and the desire to embrace the strange and the even stranger.”
