a word about our artists
- under the guise of “asentimentalsong”, joe morgan uses little more than his custom made les paul & array of effects pedals to construct minimal soundscapes. his first recorded ouptut for the lab is a single fifteen minute piece on the a side of HSAL #19. if he had his way, this record would have gone on for days.
- we’ve been a fan of carter mahnke for over three years for one simple reason – the guy writes good pop songs. as goodwill falcon, mahnke works the singer/songwriter angle through delay pedals, casio keyboards, & drum pads. if the first two EP’s are any indication of what’s to come, the falcon will be soaring through hearts for many moons to come.
- for nearly a decade, tim condon has been working through his personal demons under the moniker of “herizon”. always a fan of the 90′s lo-fi revival, condon works with a very humble list of instruments & accompaniments. themes within herizon tunes are dark & reflective, painting a picture of loves lost & a yearning to revisit better times.
the late virginia summers (TLVS)
- having survived a handful of lineup changes, TLVS is currently a two piece that works with other artists from time to time. sonically, the group plays off both the shoegazing bliss of the 90′s & the ambient texture of 21st century post rock.
- originally conceived as the solo project of nathan mcglothlin (a new dawn fades, the late virginia summers), “virgineola” has matured into an entirely independent entity. 2008 saw mcglothlin write the score to a locally produced art installation, then put together a group that could perform the score. many of those initial musicians are what comprises virgineola these days.
