On Saturday, Daisy Anaïs Cydney Goodwin & Katherine Cantwell played two hours of Heavenly music for a special label takeover on Amazing Radio.
The duo played tracks from our current roster, showcasing the ‘Heavenly Sounds of 2018.’ (For some of the tracks it was their radio debut)
Plus, you can listen to the tunes on this tasty Spotify playlist and discover the Heavenly artists featured on the show!
The Heavenly Jukebox head to Two Tribes Brewhouse & Taproom this Thursday. Danny & Jeff will be spinning some sweet records. From soul 45s, hip hop, disco and boogie classics to house 12s, fresh edits, rock ‘n’ roll, balearic and proper straight party jams. Head on over to King’s Cross for a dance!
A pretty extraordinary date for your diary has just been announced: on 13 September, much loved Welsh-and-Cornish-language artist and friend of the river Gwenno takes to St Ives’ Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden for an hour-long solo ambient set, as part of the Tate’s ‘Morning Music’ series.
Gwenno’s recently released second album, Le Kov (The Place of Memory), is written entirely in Cornish. With songs referencing Peter Lanyon, the St Ives School, and Cornwall’s clogged roads in the summertime, Gwenno’s beautiful, stirring music is a celebration of all the things that Cornwall – and the Cornish language – has to offer.
Gwenno’s set will soundtrack breakfast and fizz provided by the Tate. More info and tickets are available here.
Before this special event Gwenno (and her band) will be performing a plugged in all out set on our stage at Port Eliot Festival on Thursday 26 July.
On Sunday Halifax revealed a music heritage tour of the city:
“Halifax has a surprising and quite amazing music history. From Dusty Springfield, Rod Stewart, Iggy Pop to Joy Division, Pulp, The Cure, The Jacksons, the list of artists who have played the town is long and diverse. The brand new Halifax Music Heritage Trail, created by Michael Ainsworth and Trevor Simpson, celebrates this important cultural history of our town.”
An ode to the local legends…The trio celebrated the release of their debut with a signing at the venue on release week.
This morning on our favourite Soho Radio show Morning Glory – James Endeacott & Raf Rundell had a chat with Rough Trade Books Nina Hervé & pamphlet designer Craig about this brand new venture.
ROUGH TRADE EDITIONS is a series of pamphlets bringing together the very highest calibre of artists, writers, poets, musicians, photographers, illustrators and thinkers producing work relating to their relationship with the counterculture.
Brand new and original (and beautifully produced) works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, comics, illustrations, photography and i nterviews — ROUGH TRADE EDITIONS will tell the stories of why counter-culture matters, has mattered and will matter.
An evening of spoken word and live music
‘The Word for Woman Is Wilderness is unlike any published work I have read, in ways that are beguiling, audacious … rises to its own challenges in engaging intellectually as well as wholeheartedly with its questions about gender, genre and the concept of wilderness.’ Guardian

‘Emily Hasler’s poems invite us to look again at the ways in which we construct – and constrain – meaning, experience, ourselves and each other. They draw on past narratives and historical forms of investment to suggest future possibilities.’ – Lavinia Greenlaw
