Just a few exciting updates from Helio-land:
RECORD STORE DAY: LIMITED EDITION SPLIT 7" WITH MENOMENA + GO SEE BENJAMIN DJ IN PORTLAND!!!!!!
For those of you hungry for more Helio music you can get a taste of what we've been up to in the studio this coming Saturday April 17th. In celebration of the very cool Record Store Day (http://www.recordstoreday.com) we're proud to announce that we've teamed up with good friends, fellow Beavertonites, and musical geniuses Menomena for a limited edition split 7" on Barsuk Records. We've been talking about working together for a long time and hopefully this is the first in many future outings for "Heliomena." Menomena contributed the b-side "Pilgrim's Progress" from their forthcoming (awesome) album "Mines" out on Barsuk, July 27th. And we contributed our track "Converter"...also a b-side from the as-yet-unnamed new album we're hammering away at. The 7" comes in a special letterpress cardboard packaging beautifully printed by the folks at Stumptown Printers here in Portland. It's limited to 500 copies in the US and only 250 in the UK where it will be released by City Slang. Ch eck your local independent record store to see if they'll have it in stock!
AND...to promote the glorious alliance that is "Heliomena" Benjamin Weikel and Danny Seim will team up for a two hour long DJ set at Everyday Music (Burnside location) on Record Store Day, April 17th!!!! This is the closest thing to a "drum-off" that they would agree to. Come hang out as they trade songs and don't be surprised if Benjamin kicks out the New Age jams (not kidding) or hits you up with an esoteric Hans-Joachim Roedelius (who?) song or two. This'll be the first time he's ever DJ'd...(don't tell him I told you that :-) ).
There will also be refreshments from Voodoo Doughnut, Floating World Comics will have a table there, and more DJ's from other great bands too. What reason is there NOT to come out for Record Store Day?!
