Whoa, whoa, wait…what?!

I have just learned via Pitchfork of a new highly anticipated album due out next year. It’s from a new group called Mister Heavenly that consists of…wait for it…

Nick Thorburn (frontman of Islands)

Joe Plummer (drummer of Modest Mouse)

and main Man Man man Honus Honus

From Pitchfork:

Talking to Spinner recently, Honus Honus said that the new band would occupy some aesthetic middle ground between his own work and Thorburn’s: “It actually sounds like a mash-up of our two styles. For the Man Man stuff, if you like our doo-wop-y stuff, ‘Doo Right’ or ‘Ice Dogs,’ that vein. If you like what Nick does, the stripped-down pop stuff and the Unicorns stuff, it’s like that.” A press release gives that style a name: “doom-wop”. We’ll have to see if the term catches on.

Tonight, the band heads out a small tour opening for Passion Pit. Their last show has them headlining in Salt Lake City!
