Album Review: Mister Heavenly - 'Out Of Love'
Some of their finest work to date
7 / 10
Boasting perhaps the indie-est collective CV in musical history (to wit: The Unicorns
, Man Man
, The Shins
and Modest Mouse
), Mister Heavenly
’s debut is the sound of three seasoned band-dudes throwing off the shackles and having what sounds like a lot of fun. Leftfield guitar music par excellence you’d probably expect – and ‘Bronx Sniper’
and ‘Mister Heavenly’
are two near-perfect examples of the genre – but it’s the unlikely, R&B-inspired slow-jams (‘Doom Wop’
, ‘Diddy Eyes’
) that deliver ‘Out Of Love’
’s gnarliest curveballs. Taken as a whole, it’s some of Nick Thorburn, Ryan Kattner and Joe Plummer’s finest work to date.
