‘Music is more than words, something other than simply sound. Music is beyond explanation. It is feeling. It is the life-force…Do you believe in magic?’
Rising from the acid house explosion, and now entering its third decade, Heavenly Recordings is the most exciting its ever been. Home to a disparate crew of rule-breaking musical magic-makers, from the Mark Lanegan and St. Etienne to King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and The Orielles, their eclectic roster is united by an outsider status and ability to inspire obsessive fandom.
Weaving sonic sorcery with a warm-hearted and progressive ethos, Heavenly Recordings have played a crucial role in shaping the alternative cultural landscape.
It looks like that’s set to continue at this year’s SFTOC with a raft of newly-signed artists including Boy Azooga, Anna Burch and eagerly-anticipated headliners 77:78, the brand new project from Aaron Fletcher & Tim Parkin of The Bees.
