Swervedriver's Adam Franklin and new Brooklyn dream syndicate Heaven team up for a split 7". Limited to 600 copies on pink vinyl. Adam Franklin & Bolts of Melody: From 1990 to 1998 Adam Franklin was the singer, guitarist and main songwriter for London-based Swervedriver; contemporaries of and label mates with My Bloody Valentine and Ride but with a more adrenalized rock 'n' roll sound, showing flashes of Husker Du and Sonic Youth. From 1999 to 2006 Adam recorded and toured as Toshack Highway, a gentler but no less inventive folk/electronic/film soundtrack-like hybrid, releasing a full album and a flurry of EPs. 2007 saw the release of Bolts of Melody - the first album billed simply as 'Adam Franklin' and was followed in 2009 and 2010 by Spent Bullets and I Could Sleep for a Thousand Years respectively. These records marked a return to predominantly song-based sets that built on the soundscapes of all of his previous bands and projects, with occasional surges of Swerve-like guitar energy nestling alongside all manner of melodious, hazily hypnotic instrumentation. Heaven: "Heaven is a Brooklyn dream syndicate planted firmly between the 1985 crossroads of Paisley Underground shamble and noise pop blast. These three New York veterans have no shortage of experience with things that swirl and gaze and lilt along hazily... an abrasive blast of sheet-metal feedback doing it's noble best to hide some spectral, Spectoral harmonies." - Village Voice NYC trio Heaven, comprised of Matt Sumrow (The Comas, Dean and Britta, Ambulance LTD), Mikey Jones (The Big Sleep, Adam Franklin, Snowden), and Ryan Lee Dunlap (Fan-Tan), just finished a week of stand-out sets at SXSW '12. Heaven will continue to tour throughout the country with London-based Swervedriver.
