Heavenly Beat

I mentioned a while back that John Peña was looking to turn his Swedish-style indiepop Heavenly Beat solo project into a real live band and it looks like he's done so as the trio version of the group (as seen above) are making their debut Wednesday night (8/8) at Public Assembly with Plastic Flowers, Young Boys, and You. (That's You, the band, not you you. Unless you are in You. Then it is you.) It's $8 to get in before 9 PM and $10 after. You can also buy your tickets online.

The only other upcoming Heavenly Beat show at the moment is at Glasslands on October 11 with fellow Captured Tracks band (and real Swedes) Thieves Like Us and tickets to that show are on sale now. Jon did just make a video for the song "Tradition" and you can watch that below, along with a stream of the entire Heavenly Beat album.

What is Swedish-style exactly?
Is it like greek-style feta made in jersey?

@ ME,

You know, like jazzy classical guitar, pizzicato strings, delicate singing, drum machines... an indiepop style perfected by Swedes. See: The Embassy, Tough Alliance, Eggstone...everything on Labrador Records.

What's with those photos?? And that font?? You'd think a captured tracks band would have better aesthetics.

12:31 - I think they're going for a K Records Calvin Johnson twee look.

@12:37 - consider irony maybe? this was obviously not made in earnest. and i'm sure it didn't come from the captured tracks press kit. the guys don't even look like that anymore.

anyway, i'm ok with the seasonal lizard+watermelon combo
