Directed by Dougal Wilson, the video is set in the heart of the British countryside and see’s the girls take part in traditional Morris dancing.
On the video, Wilson says:
“The idea for Apparition came from the fact that the song had a mysterious, hypnotic feeling, and the fact that I’ve always found Morris dancing slightly strange and psychedelic,” says the video’s director, Dougal Wilson. “I’d also wanted to revisit Morris dancing since I made a Four Tet video in 2003, where I simply cut existing Morris footage to music. Since then, I’d always wanted to take the idea further by actually having a band learn Morris dancing themselves, and this seemed like an appropriate opportunity given the unexpected contrast of the girls’ personalities with the characters in a genuine Morris side.”

‘Apparition’ will be the third single from the bands critically acclaimed album ‘Not Real.’
The band recently scooped up the award for best music video at this years https://www.facebook.com/RaindanceFilmFestLondon for their video of the albums title track.
Following a series of festivals and headline shows, the trio are due to support Django Django & Maxmio Park on their UK shows this winter. Plus, the band are hosting their third unique ‘Mythopoeia III’ event at The Kazimier on November 28th.
The video was created by Lionel Williams, who explained that “‘1518’ is an augmented reality video made with Unity where one can pivot & look around a celestial environment with a phone / tablet – as well as with a computer using the arrow keys that appear on the video”.
“The footage was shot at the center of a black hole, where 360 degree realities are apparent from all angles of human ocular vestiges, achieved merely by the alchemical compounding of mercurial gauze and the potentiality of sight-based-probability. Blue gold transmuted higher dimensional knots out into single strands of animation, which illuminates the pathway of inner archaic futures, i.e. paradoxical bath time.”

The track premiered on Beat Magazine, who had this to say: “The super sonic highspeed original take on the track has been given a make over by Total Control’s Mike Young, who has warped Reactor into a spaced out ska jam.”
‘Reactor’ will be released as a 7″ single, with a previously unreleased demo of album track ‘Televangelist’ on the B side, on November 6th and is available for pre-order here.
Listen to the original version of ‘Reactor’ here.
The track is taken from the band’s debut album ‘We Are Nots’, which we will be releasing on November 20th and can be pre-ordered here.
To coincide with these releases, Nots are going on a European tour in November, including playing a very special Heavenly 25 show at the Garage in London (more on that to be announced soon). Check out the dates below, and get your tickets here.
“‘Trapdoor’ is a funky one, using a syncopated groove with punctuation from flute riffs, echo-heavy violin, and lots of shaker.” –Noisey
‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon’ is available to pre-order here.
The Noisey article also included some photos taken by the band on their recent US tour, including these:
Whilst on tour, the band stopped by KEXP to film a session, where they played “The River” from ‘Quarters’ (available here) as well as the classic quadruple whammy of “I’m In Your Mind/I’m Not In Your Mind/Cellophane/I’m In Your Mind Fuzz” from the 2014 album ‘I’m In Your Mind Fuzz’ (available here).
We’re excited that Fever The Ghost are bringing their live sorcery to the UK for a trio of UK dates next week. The LA four piece will play the following shows:
The band release their first full length LP titled ‘Zirconium Meconium’ on Friday 25th September, it features the bands single ‘1518.’ ‘1518’ also features on the Rough Trade Shops ‘Heavenly 25′ compilation alongside the bands magical cover of label mates Temples ‘Keep In The Dark.’ The bands album follows last years ‘Crab in Honey EP’ which was released on blue and red vinyl.
Ahead of the album release, Clash Magazine have premiered album track ‘Sun Moth’:
“It contains an airy, grey-flecked beauty. A spectrum of light erupting from a dusty tomb, you can peer into its heady resurrection below.”
Check out the new video for Gwenno’s ‘Patriarcaeth’, which was directed by Ian Watson and created using physical manipulation of VHS tapes and the random deletion of digital memory; the result is a near discordant clash between analogue static and digital glitches.
The video premiered on NPR, where they described it as “a bright, fragmented piece of visual art that matches “Patriarchaeth” both in technology and message. The song sounds digitized but fuzzy, like an old gaming system with dust in the console. For those that remember both dusty consoles and broken VHS tapes, these images and sounds will be immediately evocative. On top of that is Gwenno’s smooth, light voice. It seems to breeze above the rest of the music, but is actually outlining (in her native Welsh) a deconstruction greater than any glitchy music or mirror image.”
We’re pleased to announce another exciting release on our Forever Heavenly imprint. Following Jock Scot’s ‘My Personal Culloden’ re-issue this summer with musical accompaniment from The Nectarine No.9, were pleased to announce that this winter, the imprint will re-issue The Nectarine No.9 LP ‘Saint Jack.’
Among the last representatives of the “Sound Of Young Scotland”, and previously released on Postcard Records, we are pleased to be celebrating the music of The Nectarine No.9 with the LP ‘Saint Jack’ coming out on vinyl for the first time.
Mojo Magazine have previewed the title track ‘Saint Jack’ as well as speaking to Heavenly Recordings founder Jeff Barrett on what this record stands for:
“Saint Jack is an album I’ve admired since its release. It’s a rich, captivating record, a true Postcard Records release in every sense, although it’s perhaps not as well known as some of its peers,” Heavenly Recordings’ Jeff Barrett tells MOJO. “If with this reissue Heavenly can help more people discover it, then our job is done.”

After catching these Memphis girls at SXSW earlier this year, we’re hugely excited to add Nots to our current roster and bring their debut LP ‘We Are Nots’ to Europe this winter.
Launching the announcement with the bands debut single ‘Reactor,’ Noisey premiered the track with a video produced by the bands front women Natalie Hoffman.
“Memphis based band NOTS come from a good lineage. Their debut album — set for a UK release on Heavenly Records — is licensed from legendary label Goner, who were home to Jay Reatard, Ex Cult, and The Oblivians, among others. So it’s not surprising then that the record also clocks in somewhere just shy of the the 27 minute mark.
Urgent, fast, and loud — think of all the adjectives used to describe racous lo-fi punk music. Think Bikini Kill. Think the Cramps. The Fall. NOTS take elements from all of these things and repackage them in their own visceral, sometimes psychedelic sheen.”
Following the single, the bands debut LP ‘We Are Nots’ has been given a new yellow sleeve (previously pink) for the Heavenly edition as well including the ‘Virgin Mary / Shelf Life’ 7″. Due for release on November 20th, visit here for full track-listing and pre-order the LP here.
