MP3: The Heavenly States, “Model Son”

The Heavenly States, “Model Son”

One of the very first bands I talked about on this blog, way back in the days before Twitter, Justin Bieber and Middle East unrest, was San Francisco’s The Heavenly States.

After putting out several fantastic albums in the middle part of the decade, the band kinda went silent (with the exception of an excellent set I caught at SXSW last year) after 2008’s Delayer. I was actually starting to worry that maybe they’d broken up, until a few weeks ago when I noticed mention on their MySpace page of a new record coming out and some East Coast tour dates.

So I was pretty excited today to open an email announcing that band has a brand new 7-song EP, Out Camera Oui, coming out on April 19th. The EP was recorded and produced by Bill Lefler, and mixed by John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, etc.). You can hear the first track, “Model Son”, above.

The band has a couple of New York-area shows coming up, including a show at the Rock Shop in Brooklyn on March 3rd and a show at Pianos on March 4th, and if you’re in the area, I highly recommend getting out and seeing these guys.

Sunday Videos – Statehood

Although I wasn’t a huge fan of their live performance, I was quite moved by the very nice tribute that JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound’s bassist gave to Clark Sabine last night. Clark was one of the most unique, and uniquely talented, members of the Washington, D.C. music scene for more than a decade, and unfortunately never got the recognition he deserved outside of D.C. Clark sadly passed away in 2009, at just 33 years of age, after a lengthy fight with cancer.

The last band that Clark was in before his death was the Statehood, which also featured bassist Eric Axelson and drummer Joe Easley of The Dismemberment Plan. While many of us (myself included) are going kinda crazy for the D Plan’s current reunion tour, I wanted to make sure people also knew how incredibly good Statehood was in its own right. If you haven’t heard the band before – or even if you have – I highly recommend taking a few minutes and watching some really great live footage of the band below.

SXSW: DC Does Texas Pre-Announcement

More details soon… I’m a co-sponsor, BTW.

Oh, and here is our Facebook event page. Doubt we’re gonna require RSVP, but you should probably do it just to be safe. Also, the more attendees we get to sign up, the easier it will be to bring in one or two last sponsors. :^)
