4th and final part of the Japanese music special. Thanks for reading and listening.
Heavenstamp's has featured quite prominently on this blog for the last few months. They impressed some of the guys in BLOC PARTY with their Myspace music, sometime last year. What followed that was their first mini-album release in December, crammed full with explosive pop and BLOC PARTY remixes. That's what I like to see here on A F L Y V A R I E T Y...
East meets West
a shit load of musical roots
and music videos that'll make your face melt.
That's Heavenstamp in a nutshell.
Let's get right to the music this time. You can pretty much watch their first EP unfold, in music videos. So let's do that.
Minus that lack of dance remixes here, that's their first EP, cleverly titled "HYPE"
Here it is, in a zip file.

It's seemed strange to me that a band as young as these guys are pumping out music of this quality and music videos that good. I just hoped they kept getting better, or just came out with more stuff. Then they got signed to Warner Brothers Japan, which is where the remixes just start to steal the show.
I'm sold now. Come on. Tell me that's shit. This EP is a pocket-size bomb.
