NEWS // Heaven by the Bilinda Butchers is out today!

Earlier this morning California based dream poppers the Bilinda Butchers released their newest album, Heaven, to the public. Heaven is the group's first full-length album and features a different recording of last year's single, "The Lover's Suicide".

The 13 track LP is a concept album that follows the life of "a young woman who lived in Japan from 1836 to 1864. It's entries catalog her catastrophic marriage to a cruel nobleman, and her later introduction to a young, idealistic poet whose expressions of sympathy inspire her to escape from her unfortunate circumstances. When her friendship with the poet is discovered, Ume is sent away to a distant village, where she falls into a deep depression and eventually learns of the poet’s death. Though the news of the poet’s death initially disturbs Ume, she soon discovers within herself a new sense of clarity and motivation. Her diary ends with a final pronouncement: she will drown herself in order to reunite with her fallen lover." While I don't condone suicide at all, man does it make great music. Digital copies of Heaven are available here via Orchid Tapes. Limited Edition white vinyls of Heaven are available here...also via Orchid Tapes!
