Album Review: Mister Heavenly - 'Out Of Love'
Some of their finest work to dateMore on Mister Heavenly
7 / 10 Boasting perhaps the indie-est collective CV in musical history (to wit: The Unicorns, Islands, 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.
