"Skream.Jp (Japan) Album Review"

Patrick HeaneyとAaron Blombergの2人によって結成されたポスト・ロック・バンド。レコーディングにTHE ALBUM LEAFのJimmy Lavalleが参加していることから、彼らがエクスペリメンタルな音を奏でることは想像が容易であろう。Track.1「A Dream In Death」は冷たいドローンなイントロから徐々に神秘的なポスト・ロック・サウンドに展開していき、Track.2「Unfortunately We're Here」はミニマルなドラムと緻密に敷き詰められた音色が実に気持ちよく、Track.3「February 29, 1996」では淡いヴォーカルがSIGUR ROSを彷彿とさせる。冷たさと暖かさが同居したこの季節にハマる優しい作品。(伊藤 啓太) - Skream!

"KPBS - Your cultural to do list for the weekend"

Maureen Cavanaugh interviews music editor Peter Hoslin (SD CityBeat, Rollingstone) about his weekend picks-

excerpt -
"CAVANAUGH: … Now, you're excited about one of the opening bands, tiny telephones.

HOLSLIN: Yeah, they're a really cool local band, and they have members of this other band called shark attack, which isn't around anymore. They just released a new album called the heavenly child. And you might call it postrock. It fits into that sort of genre, not to go with the nerdy genre things again. But basically suffice it to say, it's very that you feel, and it's heavy but it's also very introspective." - KPBS

"Tiny Telephones – The Heavenly Child // Limited 150g White Vinyl LP"

Some really amazing stuff here. Forming in late 2011, this band has been labeled as a cross between Explosions in the Sky and M83.. wow, right? They even worked with Jimmy LaValle, of The Album Leaf, on mixing the record. At this point you’re probably already scrolling down to listen… - SlyVinyl

"* * * * * Tiny Telephones – The Heavenly Child * * * * *"

Tiny Telephones formed in late 2011 to write the album “The Heavenly Child” which has been called a cross between [ Explosions in the Sky ] and [ M83 ]. They worked with multiple engineers on mixing the record including Jimmy LaValle of [ The Album Leaf ].
When recording the album Patrick Heaney and Aaron Blomberg didn’t want to take a conventional approach to tracking, “we set up a small mobile recording rig to take with us to different spots to get different sounds”, says Patrick. “We recorded some guitars in the woods, some big drums in abandoned warehouses, random sounds at the train station and on boats! A whole bunch of different stuff”, Aaron adds. The rest of the album was done at Patrick Heaney’s studio Secret Cedar Recording Studio and engineered by both members.
And here goes a new project that I will HIGHLY RECOMMEND especially if [ The Album Leaf ] ~ [ Hammock ] and [ The American Dollar ] is your things. Think of [ Tiny Telephones ] more a solid version of [ The Echelon Effect ] but also more concentrated on the electronic mix side. It’s brilliant guys. Too bad it’s on purchase only but if you can afford it GET IT. This is sound I wouldn’t mind investing. See Recommendations as well. - The Sirens Sound

"Tiny Telephones and Kynan"

Keep an eye out for Tiny Telephones, a new electro-rock supergroup that features Shark Attack’s Patrick Heaney (keyboards) and Aaron Blomberg (guitar), Hyena’s Michael Cooper (drums) and Alia Jyawook (cello) of Kata and Christwaves. Heaney and Blomberg started the band and have been working on material that sounds like a cross between The Album Leaf and Explosions in the Sky, but the full lineup came together only a few weeks ago. They’d rehearsed just once for about half an hour before playing their debut show at The Casbah last week. “The show went surprisingly well for one practice and no one hearing the last song till the day-of,” Heaney says. “Click tracks and good musicians help a ton.” They’re currently recording a full-length album at the Secret Cedar Recording Studio; they expect it will be done by next month. - CityBeat


Still working on that hot first release.



A Little Bit About Tiny Telephones

Tiny Telephones was formed by Patrick Heaney and Aaron Blomberg in late 2011. 

Their debut album The Heavenly Child released in 2012. When recording the album the members didn't take a conventional approach to tracking- "We recorded guitars in the woods, drums in abandoned warehouses and ambient sounds anywhere from train stations to boats. We set up a small mobile recording rig everywhere we could to get the different sounds". The album, written and engineered by both members was produced by Patrick in his studio Secret Cedar. They worked with multiple engineers on the final mix of the project, most notably international recording artist and engineer Jimmy LaValle of The Album Leaf and Sigur Ros. The result of all this, a new blend of American indie post rock that has people around the world listening. When it was time for the band to play live, the duo enlisted the help of good friends Alia Jyawook, Danny King and Marco Perez who all had been in previous bands and projects of their own. Critics have called the project a "- post rock cross between Explosions in the Sky and M83". The live performance includes a visual aspect of projections and programmed LED lights that you could not soon forget and has become a well known staple of the project. The band is currently working on a sophomore album set to release in 2014 with additional plans of a tour.
