Earlier this week we invited former Mp3 of the Week'ers and current new favorite band THE NEW HIGHWAY HYMNAL up to the WFNX studio to perform live on The Breakfast Show. The psych rock quartet packed into a side room st the ungodly hour of 7am, blasted out a few jams and talked about their gig this weekend at DEEP HEAVEN NOW IV.
::::: We recorded the tracks and posted them this morning on Bandcamp.
The 25-band Deep Heaven Now ambient and psych fest kicks off tonight at Precinct and PA's Lounge in Somerville, and the Hymnals launch Precinct's Saturday slate tomorrow around 5pm. Repping Boston at this year's Deep Heaven are Endless Wave, the December Sound, Static of the Gods, Ghostbox Orchestra, Mind Yeti, Major Stars, 28 Degrees Taurus (peep their free "Satanic" EP), Whir, Moons, Future Carnivores, and others, and among the bands coming in from across state lines are the Vandelles (NYC), Gospel Gossip (MN), and our Maine pick for 50 Bands 50 States, Herbcraft. My goodness.
Check out the full Deep Heaven Now schedule on FB, and download the free three-track EP we recorded live during the New Highway Hymnal's WFNX appearance. Yeah, it sounds like it was recorded in a secret military bunker out in the lonely desert, but fuck it, man, it's rock and roll.
