RCRDLBL Premieres Twin Tigers – Bear In Heaven Remix

Twin Tigers are currently tearing through the mid-west amidst their first headlining tour of their LP Gray Waves. Thanks to all who’ve come out to support.

One of our favorite blogs RCRDLBL just premiered a Bear In Heaven remix of “Everyday.” Check it out below.

Twin Tigers’ epic Athens rock gets ever more epic with a spectral wash from adroit psychpoppers Bear in Heaven. This remix sees “Everyday” in a wide-angled lens where air and earth wrestle for sonic share—cumulous vocals ascend while weighty guitar distortions pull down. Contradictions! We love those. Safe bet there will be more on Twin Tigers’ upcoming EP (which they’re recording with Sam Fogarino of Interpol). For those who can’t wait, pick up the band’s tumultuous rock debut on Old Flame now.

Introducing Quiet Lights

Formed in Brooklyn in 2009 through a shared love of finding beauty in layers and textures, Quiet Lights’ new 7” features the track “No More Canyons” with b-side “Break Trouble Wait.” The single will be released digitally and on vinyl, February 15 on Old Flame Records.

Mixed by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Explosions In The Sky, Antony and the Johnsons) and engineered by Jason LaFarge (SWANS, Devendra Banhart) the soaring orchestral song “No More Canyons” is currently featured through Delta this January and February. Fans can listen to the track where it premiered on RCRD LBL. Feel free to post and share and stay tuned for a brand new video coming soon!
