Vinyl Christmas aka Record Store Day is Saturday, April 18 and in honor of the holiday, Heavenly Recordings have a sweet list of very limited double A-side 7” releases to show off their excellent roster.
Amongst them is a split of Temples and IRR Favorite Fever the Ghost covering each other. This comes as no surprise as the two became very fond of each other whilst on tour in 2014. The 45 is limited (300 copies) or snag it in the Heavenly 7&7 Box Set (also 200 copies, we told you limited). Have a listen: Temples’ dreamy version of “Calico” is damn-near hypnotizing and the Fever the Ghost glamorous bass-heavy take on “Keep In The Dark” in unreal.
Peep the full Heavenly Recordings Record Store Day list of releases below:
