To get your attention for this new band, I’ll do something that isn’t the right thing to do, but anyway: Actor Michael Cera (Juno, Scott Pilgrim) is the temporary bassist of Mister Heavenly and accompanied them on their December tour in the States. Now you know it.
But this is not the reason why I’ll picked them as a band to watch. Usually consisting of Nick Diamonds (Islands) and Honus Honus (Man Man), who were recently joined by Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse), Mister Heavenly write so-called “doom-wop” songs. Yes, it really sounds like a doo-wop combo chaperoned by fuzzy guitars and with the vocals ringing out of an old and broken speaker.
Download their first two great songs “Mister Heavenly” and “Pineapple Girl” below and keep an eye on them. They’ve signed to Sub Pop recently and are going to release their debut album this year.
