As mentioned previously Los Campesinos! release The International Tweexcore Underground this week with two concept B-sides, one of which is C Is The Heavenly Option, Heavenly's 1992 multiple choice love test of a song featuring International Pop Underground majordomo Calvin Johnson. You can probably see where they're coming from. To hear LC!'s gender swap cover you'll have to buy the single, but as for the original...

More up to date with two tracks we feel have been made by people more than likely to be across Heavenly's back catalogue. We mentioned Caz Mechanic on the Weekly Sweep just gone, and further investigation turned up her split EP on Tome Records with the not that promisingly named Ray Rumours And The No-Eyed Deers. In fact the mysterious Ray is the somewhat less exotic Ros Murray, in loads of bands by the look of it but best known as bassist with Electrelane, doing impressive stripped back lo-fi tweefolk.

Mimi. Yeah! is the recording nom de plume of artist Mimi Leung, who's been an auxiliary to the Warmsley/Flynn/The Great group we like to reference occasionally but is very much her own one-woman operation. The inevitable forcefully-minded woman with guitar touchstones of Patti Smith and PJ Harvey come to mind, as does Scout Niblett, if you really need parameters.
