Temples have announced details of their new single Move With The Season released on Monday November 3rd 2014, the final single to be taken off their acclaimed debut album, Sun Structures!
Released as part of a digital EP which also includes a Tom Furse remix and a version of the track by Beyond the Wizards Sleeve (Erol Alkan & Richard Norris).
Sun Structures, which is Rough Trade Shops best selling album of the year and one of the best selling vinyl releases of 2014 so far, was released in February. The 12-track album, self-produced by the band’s James Bagshaw and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer, has been a massive world-wide success, proving a huge international hit; in Japan the record became a top-3 fixture in the international chart.
The band have also announced a UK tour which starts at the end of November:
Tickets for the UK headline tour are available from 9am Friday 29th August 2014 priced at £12 (Sheffield, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow & Newcastle), £12.50 (Bristol, Brighton, Norwich and Manchester) and £15 (London) via www.gigsandtours..com and www.gigsinscotland.com (Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen).

With the release of his much-anticipated new album ‘Phantom Radio’ just under a month away (20th October) Mark Lanegan Band have today announced news of an extensive European tour running from January through to March 2015. The tour will touch down in the UK for the following shows, including a performance at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London:

Thursday 29 January – PORTSMOUTH – Pyramids
We’re also pleased to say that preorders of ‘Phantom Radio’ are now available in the Heavenly emporium. We have limited edition white vinyl, standard CDs plus the deluxe CD edition which includes the ‘No Bells On Sunday’ EP!
3D glasses at the ready, folks! After announcing their signing to Heavenly, we’re pleased to share the new video from Aussie “fried theremin wielding psychopaths” (their words) King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, as premiered by Pitchfork.
‘Cellophane’ is the first single taken from forthcoming album ‘I’m In Your Mind Fuzz’ and naturally it comes with a mind-meltingly trippy 3D video courtesy of Jason Galea, who said of the concept: “Stu gets taken into the 3rd dimension wearing cellophane glasses and becomes too big for the world so he gets spat out.”
The band’s Stu Mackenzie adds: “We originally nicknamed cellophane “math” because the song is based around three dynamic sections (tight — heavy — loose — repeat) over four lyrical sections (verse — cellophane — doo — instrumental — repeat). We thought we were clever at the time but you can’t really tell anymore. We recorded it at Daptone in Brooklyn but it didn’t turn out soul either. We made the clip in 3D because we thought it would be funny. If you can’t find any 3D glasses you can just pretend.”

The Wytches have shared ‘Darker’, the B-side to ‘Burn Out The Bruise’. Tracked at Toerag studios during the recording of Annabel Dream Reader, it’s streaming over at Crack Magazine now, who call it ‘a heady mix of psychedelia and stoner metal that’s littered with groans and screeches’ — head on over now to give it a listen and crank up the volume!

It gives us immense pleasure to say that Heavenly have signed up Hooton Tennis Club, a band who have been making a bit of noise in the north west of late, and were brought to our attention by the enthusiasms of Carl Hunter (The Farm).

With the new EP ‘No Bells On Sunday’ released this week, we’re pleased to report that Mark Lanegan Band have today announced full details of the much anticipated forthcoming album ‘Phantom Radio’. The record is released on Heavenly Recording on 20th October, with ‘Floor Of The Ocean’ available to stream now:
Lanegan’s chief compositional tool on Phantom Radio was his phone – specifically an app called Funk Box. “I didn’t bother to hook up my 909 and 808 this time,” he says, “because the app had ’em. I’d write drum parts with it then add music with the synthesizer or the guitar.” The album grew organically from these synthetic roots, taking in Mark’s ongoing love of Krautrock and also an ’80s new wave show on Sirius satellite radio, his favoured aural companion as he drives around Los Angeles. “They have a few good shows but the ‘80s one in particular I like,” he says. “That’s the music that was happening when I started making music. And although the Trees drew on Nuggets psychedelia, 13th Floor Elevators and Love, we were actually listening to Echo And The Bunnymen, Rain Parade, the Gun Club. A lot of British post-punk. We loved that stuff. I just waited until I was in my late forties before I started ripping it off.”
Lanegan’s generous collaborative spirit sees him deliver an excellent co-write with British guitarist Duke Garwood, with whom he made last year’s dustbowl-desolate Black Pudding, and who now offers the music for I Am The Wolf, a Lanegan signature tune. Mark’s favourite song on the album, meanwhile, is Torn Red Heart, an intensely tender meditation for a broken heart that’s like The Velvet Underground’s Pale Blue Eyes orchestrated by Angelo Badalamenti. He also has a special mention for Floor Of The Ocean, which balances sheer catchiness with a deceptively bleak lyrical reflection on a life lived on the hard shoulder: “Clear eyes, can’t avoid the searchlight/Hope that they don’t find me/Find me where I’m lying.”
Phantom Radio will be released 20th October on Flooded Soil / Heavenly Recordings. UK live shows will be announced soon.
The tracklisting for Phantom Radio is as follows:
1. Harvest Home
2. Judgement Time
3. Floor Of The Ocean
4. The Killing Season
5. Seventh Day
6. I Am The Wolf
7. Torn Red Heart
8. Waltzing In Blue
9. The Wild People
10. Death Trip To Tulsa
