So Michael Cera is (at least temporarily) the bassist for new supergroup Mister Heavenly. But in all honesty, he's the least exciting member of the group. Nick Diamonds of Islands/Unicorns and Honus Honus from Man Man have teamed up with Joe Plummer, Modest Mouse's drummer, to create a new genre called doom-wop. It's a fraction Islands, a fraction Man Man and a majority freaking awesome.
The band has only played a handful of shows so far, and unfortunately its current 10-show tour is only traveling the West Coast. But the band has just been signed by Sub Pop Records, so hopefully an album will be coming soon. In the meantime, a blogger armed with a decent-sound-quality camera captured eight of their songs the other night when the band was opening for Passion Pit in Portland.
