Goon announces Heaven Is Humming for 7/19 release

by Woody on May 21, 2019

I have been waiting for this one for awhile. Been loving the EPs for a couple of years now but am excited to sink my teeth into an LP. Fronted by Kenny Becker, Goon crank out a rambunctious brand of lo-fi rock that’s as gritty as it is enjoyable. Heaven Is Humming will see the light of day on 7/19 via the fine folks at Partisan. Here’s some more info from the Partisan PR squad.

Goon is primarily a vehicle for Becker, who wrote ‘Heaven is Humming’ while suffering from a chronic sinus condition that required surgery and periodically debilitated his senses – including hearing. The songs – fearlessly weird, yet also comforting and familiar – emerged during Becker’s brief periods of health and optimism. “I find encouragement in the fact that I’m able to be productive in the times that I’m not sick,” Becker explains. “People like to romanticize the periods in which, for example, someone like Van Gogh was suffering, but it was actually because he was sick that he would go outside and see a cherry-blossom tree and be struck by its beauty. It would make him realize, ‘This might be the last time I see this, I don’t know when I’ll have this snatched away from me again.’”
