We’re happy to announce a new addition to the Heavenly roster. We’re delighted to sign The Orielles, a three-piece from Halifax. Teenagers Esmé Dee-Hand, Henry Carlyle Wade & Sidonie B Hand.

Label founder Jeff Barrett comments on how the band we’re brought to our attention:

“We got to hear about them by word of month — initially from some of my older pals, namely Joe McKechnie up in Liverpool and Phil Wilson — of June Brides fame — guys that know their stuff — then more recently from some of our bands namely Hooton Tennis Club and The Parrots who The Orielles recently supported on UK tour which is when we all fell in love with them .”

The band are also just as enthused to join the label:

“We are really excited to be working with Heavenly: they have released some of our favourite records and we’re very honoured to be among some amazing bands.

In January the band will join the line-up for our four day event in the Hebden Bridge Trades Club. They have been added to the Friday night bill where they join The Parrots, Hooton Tennis Club and the Heavenly Jukebox for an unmissable Friday night party.

Having previously supported Hooton Tennis Club, the boys have shared their excitement for our latest signing:

“The Orielles played with us at our Liverpool show last Christmas. We watched them from the back of the Kazimier with Bill R-J and we all loved them! The day after the show Harry and Cal rushed to Probe Records to buy their single, Space Doubt. Their recordings are great and they are really great live. We are super happy that they’re part of the Heavenly family!”

Taking place between Thursday 19th & Sunday 22nd of January the event will see live performances from Temples, Amber Arcades, M Craft, Duke Garwood, The Parrots, H Hawkline, Hooton Tennis Club, TOY, Britain & DJ sets from the Heavenly Jukebox.

Event details and tickets can be found at The Trades Club website here.

King Gizzard announce a new album, ‘Flying Microtonal Banana.’

kglw_jamie_wdziekonski_015

You heard right, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard will release five new records in 2017. The first is ‘Flying Microtonal Banana,’ recorded at the band’s own studio in Brunswick East, Melbourne, in the summer of 2016.

Rattlesnake’ is the new single from the band and you can watch the Jason Galea directed video here:

Talking about the making of Flying Microtonal Banana, Eric Moore of the band said:

Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu. The guitar was modified to play in 24-TET tuning and could only be played with other microtonal instruments. We ended up giving everyone a budget of $200 to buy instruments and turn them microtonal. The record features the modified electric guitars, basses, keyboards and harmonica as well as a Turkish horn called a Zurna.

Flying Microtonal Banana takes a subtle musical shift away from the frazzled freak-beat of its predecessor, Nonagon Infinity which was released earlier this year.

We’re also hugely anticipating the seven piece arriving back on our shores in 2017 to play live shows. We’re excited to announce that the band will play their two biggest UK shows to date in London & Manchester early next summer:

14/06 Manchester, Albert Hall — TICKETS
15/06 London, Forum — TICKETS

Tickets for these shows go on sale from 9am on Friday November 14th.

Here’s frontman Stu Mckenzie on the making of five albums next year:

Why five albums in a year?
We built a studio in an old warehouse late last year so it felt like a good idea to give it a test run. It went from three to four to five. I’m scared, I think I’m going to loose my mind by the end of the year…

How far along you are with recording?
We finished the first one — Flying Microtonal Banana a couple of months ago and have been working on two others since then. Ones kinda jazzy and is a collaboration with our buddies Mild High Club. The other is kinda heavy and has some ties with Nonagon Infinity. Four and five are too far in the future to think about right now

Will it be tough making sure it’s all done on time, to plan?
We will try our best!

Duke Garwood announces new album ‘Garden of Ashes’ & Tour Dates

Duke Garwood

Duke Garwood has announced his new album ‘Garden of Ashes’ which is to be released on Friday 3rd of February. ‘Garden of Ashes’ follows 2015’s album ‘Heavy Love.’

The Quietus have the premiere on a track from the album titled ‘Coldblooded The Return’:

Duke Garwood has released five previous blues previous albums, with his most recent in 2015 being Heavy Love, featuring backing vocals from Savages’ Jehnny Beth. In an interview with tQ, Garwood talks about recording this album in the desert, with this reflecting back through the music, in “the tranquility.

The idea of nothingness — no buildings, no claustrophobia, no strange energy, it’s just like wind. You almost feel like you could expand in yourself.” Now on Garden of Ashes, Garwood says that “This record is fantasy music… Beautiful apocalypse love music, it doesn’t hide from reality, but it could hide the listener from it all for a while.”

LISTEN TO ‘Coldblooded The Return’ here.

Temples announce details of their album ‘Volcano’ & a new video for ‘Certainty.’

Temples

Temples have announced details of their second album. Titled ‘Volcano’ it follows 2014’s critically acclaimed debut ‘Sun Structures’ and will be released on Friday March 3rd, 2017.

Volcano’ was self produced by James Edward Bagshaw & recorded at the bands home studio in Kettering.

FULL ALBUM TRACK-LISTING CAN BE FOUND HERE

The band recently unveiled the first track to be taken from the album, ‘Certainty’ which you can listen to here.

It doesn’t take too long with Volcano to realise that, while all the things that made the band special the first time around remain intact, a noticeable evolution has taken place. It’s there from the outset: the beefed-up beats of Certainty reveal an expanded sonic firmament, one in which bright synth hooks and insistent choruses circle around each other over chord sequences that strike just the right balance between nice and queasy. “If there’s a sense of scale,” says lead singer James Bagshaw, “It was really just a result of implementing a load of things that we didn’t know about the first time around.” Co-founding member and bassist Thomas Walmsley describes a record in which “we discovered a lot as we went along, and the excitement at having done so radiates.”

One thing you do notice is that it’s harder to spot the influences this time around. It would be disingenuous to evade the psych-pop tag, for sure, but mystical language has been supplanted by something a more direct – and while those influences are still there, it’s no longer possible to pick them out. They’ve been broken down and blended together – fossilised into a single source of creative fuel, so that what you can hear this time around, sounds like nothing so much as Temples. This is the sound of a band squaring up to their potential.

Amber Arcades share re-working of Nick Drake’s ‘Which Will.’

Amber Arcades

Over the summer Amber Arcades started incorporating a cover of Nick Drake’s ‘Which Will’ into their set. Now the track has been recorded and is available to listen to.

The re-worked track is from Nick Drake’s seminal 1972 album ‘Pink Moon.’ It’s been given an Amber Arcades make-over, featuring her trademark ethereal, hazy, krautrock sound. Here is what Annalotte De Graaf has to say about the track:

“I’m a huge Nick Drake fan. There’s something intangible and obscure about his work (and especially the melodies) that I love. I thought it would be interesting to examine how these mysterious melodies would function in a more upbeat musical environment. I like how it turned out to be quite a poppy tune but the melodies still add this layer of strangeness to it.”

NPR Music Stream the new TOY album ‘Clear Shot.’ Out this Friday.

TOY

FIRST LISTEN: NPR are exclusively streaming the new TOY record ‘Clear Shot’ which lands this Friday, October 28th.

Rather than relying too heavily on the work of psychedelia’s past masters, Dougall and crew have put a futuristic spin on hallucinatory pop — that is, if the future were something to be viewed with romance and wonder instead of today’s all-too-pervasive doom.”

LISTEN HERE.

To celebrate the release of ‘Clear Shot’ the band are playing an in-store at Rough Trade East on Friday from 7pm. You can join the event by ore-ordering the album from Rough Trade here. Plus, the band will be signing records on the night too.

Clear Shot’ is the bands third album produced by David Wrench & mixed by Chris Coady.

“Fast Silver’ morphs from a brooding verse with cheesy 60s keyboards and swirling atmospherics into a poppy chorus, then back down through bridge passages of strange chords and twists. ‘Clouds That Cover The Sun’ with sweet harmony vocals, also twists itelf into elaborate shapes. Contrast with the relentless synth and bass pulses that give ‘Dream Orchestrator’ a Neu! — like momentum.“
- MOJO Magazine ★★★★

TOY spoke to Gigwise about the process of creating ‘Clear Shot.’ Read the interview here.

Neelam Khan Vela

Signed to Heavenly Recordings over a pool table in Austin (Texas), The Parrots are the world’s greatest three-piece party band and have this year played across Europe, the US and Central America – packed nights at the The Victoria and countless chelada-fuelled lunchtime showcases at SXSW, raucous gigs of elemental garage noise, feel-good ferocity and many, many stage invasions . . or vice versa.

Yassassin
Live support comes from Yassassin whose no filler, all killer formula is dynamically bulletproof. Inspired by a combined love of Le Tigre, PJ Harvey and The Breeders, Yassassin pride themselves on making energetic dance-on-the-table indie rock ‘n’ roll. Melodic, catchy pop perfection is personified through ramblingly loud guitars, trembling bass lines and drums that barge their way into your bones with or without your permission.

DJs on the night will be scattered over both floors and will include Miqui Brightside from Madrid flying in with his Parrot pals, home owners the Heavenly Jukebox playing sets up and down and lot lots more.

Hooton Tennis Club’s second album Big Box Of Chocolates was released in October and described by Mojo as “spontaneous and skewed, joyous and literate” and drew comparisons to Guided By Voices, Pavement and Big Star.

Saturday 21st January

TOY + H Hawkline + Britain + Heavenly Jukebox DJ’s

London-based quintet Toy release their third album Clear Shot in October 2016. It has been described as an “interrogation yet of their rain drenched and mushroom-speckled Anglo-mystic roots, through Radiophonic Workshop, Comus and Fairport, COUM and acid house all the way back to the druids.”

Multi-instrumentalist player of odd-pop Huw Evans is H. Hawkline, rumoured to be from a “family lineage of 70’s radio DJ’s and Welsh Horror movie stars” and has worked with the likes of Cate Le Bon, Sweet Baboo and Gruff Rhys. He released his Heavenly debut In The Pink Of Condition in 2015 and returns with a follow-up in spring 2017.

Britain are a boy-girl duo from Preston, subtly blending elements of dream pop and post punk via a minimalist setup of guitar, synth and drum machine’. They are working on their debut EP, due for release in spring 2017.

Purveyors of new-psychedelia and space rock, Kettering quartet Temples’ 2014 debut album Sun Structures charted at No. 7 and was Rough Trade’s Album Of The Year. This is their first ever show in Hebden Bridge and precedes their anticipated follow-up in 2017.

Hooton Tennis Club have a new video for their single ‘Katy-Anne Bellis.’ The song is an ode to singer Ryan’s ex-flatmate Katy-Anne. Ryan says: ” “It’s just a mushy song about moving house and staying in touch.”

He adds about the video, “We decided to throw a soirée in the living room of the enchanted ‘Garlic Mansion’ for our song inspired by the wonderful Katy-Anne! The house she used to live in — a house of plenty — never a dull moment! People come and people go, and in this house all are celebrated. ¡viva la garlic mansion”

‘Katy-Anne Bellis’ follows the release of an album trailer, and the band call it ”a mushy song about moving house and staying in touch”. DIY Magazine

“Recorded by Edwyn Collins at his studio in the Scottish Highlands, it feels like a natural evolution from the group’s much-loved (in these parts) debut.
’Katy-Anne Bellis’ is a coy, bittersweet ode to a former flat mate, finding the profound in the most humble of circumstance.
Oh, and the guitars can still shred… tune in now.”
– Clash Magazine

Flying Vinyl have issued this track on a 7″. Subscribe to Flying Vinyl here.

The new album ‘Big Box of Chocolates’ is out on October 21st. The record was recorded in Helmsdale, Scotland with producer Edwyn Collins.
