VIDEOS: Watch The Wytches wild and loud vs. acoustic and unplugged at SXSW

The Wytches at SXSW

Some back-to-back The Wytches for you here in these brilliant juxtaposing live takes from SXSW. Watch ‘Digsaw’ in all its loud, snarly, guitar shredding glory courtesy of SPIN and check out Kristian’s stripped back, acoustic session for NPR. There’s two sides to this band and we love em both!


Of the top 40 things we saw at SXSW 2014, British psych-rock trio the Wytches were number nine. There’s just something about a group of young kids with a reckless abandon for short-hair conventions and a love for shredding guitars that does it for us every time. In a showcase for Sailor Jerry rum last week in Austin, the band tore through a number of tracks from their forthcoming debut, out this May on Partisan. Here they play “Digsaw,” a dark and raw track that finds lead guitarist Kristian Bell screaming about being selfish in a manner that would surely make Frank Black proud. We’ve previously been gifted with a stream of the Sabbath-surf crusher “Wire Frame Mattress” and a creepy video for the sludgy “Gravedweller.”

Via NPR:

The Wytches’ furious, hair-flinging psych-rock isn’t the stuff of back-porch acoustic sessions. But don’t tell that to singer-guitarist Kristian Bell, recorded here in Austin, Texas.

Stealing Sheep to play David Lynch event at London’s Barbican


We’re really excited to say that Stealing Sheep have announced a special London date in June, playing the world premiere of a new live homage to the songs and music from David Lynch’s films. Find all the info below plus ticket link…

‘In Dreams: David Lynch Revisited’ is a project led by musical director David Coulter, the man also behind Beck’s Song Reader show at the same venue last year. The event, taking place on 20 June, will see the performance of select music from Blue Velvet, Wild At Heart, Lost Highway and cult TV surrealist drama Twin Peaks.

The likes of Villagers‘ Conor O’Brien, Jehnny Beth from Savages, Stealing Sheep, long-term Nick Cave collaborator Mick Harvey and more are among those performing live.

This stellar cast of singers will be reinterpreting classic songs from Lynch’s songbook. With the original versions performed by Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley and David Bowie amongst others, In Dreams focuses on the beauty of reinterpretation from newer acts.

Sound is almost a drug. It’s so pure that when it goes in your ears, it instantly does something to you’ — David Lynch

Record Store Day 2014: Temples/Jagwar Ma, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and TOY

Temples/Jagwar Ma, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and TOY for Record Store Day 2014

We’re really excited to announce that we’re putting out three excellent 12″ releases for this year’s Record Store Day (19th April).

On 12″ picture discs we have a remix swap between Temples (James’s first ever remix!) and our friends Jagwar Ma, plus a track from Australia’s King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard which is just genius and previously only available on their sold-out 2013 album ‘Float Along — Fill Your Lungs’. We’re releasing it because we love it. Plus on 12″ we have TOY’s ‘Join The Dubs’, previously only released as a limited bonus CD. Find more details on each release below, plus scroll right to the bottom to stream the full soundcloud set!

HVN282 Temples / Jagwar Ma ‘Shelter Song/ Man I Need’ — 12” picture disc (1000 pressings)

A. Shelter Song (Jagwar Ma Jono’s Wrong Mix)
AA. Man I Need (Temples remix)

Following on from last year’s Heavenly remix trade between TOY and The Horrors for Record Store Day, this year Heavenly releases another dream remix swap: Jagwar Ma’s Jono Ma reworks Temples’ debut single ‘Shelter Song’ and Temples’ James Bagshaw takes on Jagwar Ma single ‘Man I Need’ for his first ever remix. Picture disc artwork by Oliver Hibert.

HVN281 King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard ‘Head On/Pill’ — 12″ picture disc (300 pressings)

A. Head On / Pill

Hailing from Australia, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are a seven strong collective who, by their own admission are ‘absolutely fried theremin wielding psychopaths’. ‘Head On/Pill’ is lifted from the band’s third album ‘Float Along – Fill Your Lungs’ out on Flightless records in Australia, but such is the thrilling slacker genius of this 16 minute epic we had to ask if we could put it out as a Heavenly Release for Record Store Day. Picture disc artwork by Oliver Hibert.


HVN273 TOY ‘Join The Dubs’ — 12″ vinyl (1000 pressings)

1. Join The Dots (dub)
2. As We Turn (dub)

1. You Won’t Be The Same (dub)
2. Left To Wander (dub)
3. Conductor (dub)

Previously only released as a limited bonus CD, ‘Join The Dubs’ presents five tracks from TOY’s second album ‘Join The Dots’ that have been playfully and knowingly re-worked by Dan Carey, exploring the darker and dubbier depths of his desk. Dan has also produced both of TOY’s albums to date.

Record Store Day 2014 takes place on 19th April. All Heavenly releases will be available from participating UK stores. See here for details
