    ICFJ #048 – Special interview with Heavenstamp!

    ICFJ #048 – Special interview with Heavenstamp!

    Hey everyone! We’re back! Kinda?

    Yeah, so the main thing is not an audio podcast but a beautiful video on YouTube – an interview with the excellent band Heavenstamp! Regular listeners will know that we played them on the ICFJ podcast episode 38, back in 2014. Now, Heavenstamp have an amazing new album called Love Builders, and we asked them loads of stuff about it. The video also includes exclusive live performances of several songs at Lush in Shibuya, Tokyo, including their single ‘L.O.V.E, Right?’ You should watch the video, it’s great!

    It’s been something like two years since our last episode, and making a fully subtitled interview video was time-consuming, so who knows when the next one will come. But we hope you love it, and tell your friends about it, and subscribe to our YouTube channel, and leave comments, and… Ah whatever, just enjoy the video 🙂
