Heavy Experience Slowscope Release Show

It will be our honor to perform this coming Saturday (Oct. 20) at the release show for The Heavy Experience’s 12″ LP, Slowscope.  The album is a delight to listen to.  Here’s the opening track:

Here’s some info on the album:

The Heavy Experience have released their debut LP, a 6 song epic composition  named SLOWSCOPE. It is the successor of their self titled 10 inch vinyl EP. SLOWSCOPE is only released on vinyl and is cut on a 12 inch 180 gr. virgin vinyl with a CD included in the package. It’s released by Kimi Records and Úsland, the bands own label. SLOWSCOPE was recorded, produced and mixed by the band in their own studio. Finnur Hákonarson mastered and prepared for cut.

The Heavy Experience have been operating since 2010 and contains members from respected Icelandic alternative bands such as Swords of Chaos, Ólafur Arnalds, Sóley, Just Another Snake Cult and Me, the Slumbering Napoleon.

Also performing at the release show is Kría Brekkan.  Among the notable things she’s done, she was a member of Múm until 2006 and played piano on Animal Collective’s Feels. Her music is released by the aforementioned’s Paw Tracks record label.
