HSAL Family Sightings

IMG_20171119_074303_617

Last weekend, TLVS opened a killer show here in the Hill City! The Craddock-Terry Gallery in Riverviews Artspace played host to the three act bill which also boasted Advance Base & Sound Of Ceres, whose most recent full-length, “The Twin” is worth hunting down. Our friendly neighborhood instrumental rock trio took the audience through material that will comprise their new EP, “Wild Strawberry“, which should be out before the end of the year. What made the evening especially cool were the pieces of regional art that adorned the walls for the gallery’s annual juried show, specifically the large metal sculpture which took residence in the middle of the floor.

Meanwhile, out on the left coast, Steve Scott celebrated the release of his latest, “Cross My Heat“(HSAL #38), with friends & fans in northern California. Performing most of the new record, as well as some pieces from his travels over the past few decades, Steve took to the mic at the Fig Tree Lounge in Roseville. He shared stories of travel & exploration which affected much of his work. Video of both sets have since popped up on Facebook. Check out the 2nd set here, which begins with “The Eclipse” & features unreleased pieces the poet is still work-shopping…

If you are in Lynchburg this weekend, come hang with us Saturday night at Riverviews. We promise the evening will be KILLER! TLVS is gearing up for the release of their new EP, “Wild Strawberry” & will be playing most everything from it. Advance Base will conjure up spirits with his haunted lyrics. Sound of Ceres will deliver one of the coolest light shows you have ever witnessed.

PS: We also heard that Nathan will be selling  7″ singles & EP’s (including some classic indie rock) from his personal collection at the TLVS merch table.

HSAL Family on the move!

Reports from Steve Scott‘s trip across the seas have been positive! In addition to working through a university-based lecture circuit in Australia, Steve was able to spend some time in Bali. Who knows, maybe he was able to gather field recordings that will source a follow-up to the already successful “Cross My Heat“. On a related note, our continued thanks for all the support shown towards HSAL #38. It’s been such a neat experience introducing people to the label through this album.

Fresh off the heels of a killer show with Soporus in Philly, honeybrandy will be taking to North Carolina based airwaves this weekend! This Sunday night at 8P, Joey & Nathan will be playing a live set on WUAG, the student-run station for UNC Greensboro. The entire set, plus any interviews & shout-outs will be live streamed as well.

TLVS is gearing up for their 11/18 date with Sound of Ceres & Advance Base. They are also finishing up tracks for their new EP, recently re-titled “Wild Strawberry“. If all goes well, the EP should be streaming from the HSAL bandcamp page by the time you’re digesting that second helping of cranberry sauce.

LUV that city!

…really great weekend of honeybrandy action up in Philadelphia! The duo hopped in the van & made their way to an up & coming alleyway in West Kensington. honeybrandy took to a darkened warehouse space full on wooden barrels, steel kettles, & future brew, delivering a half hour’s worth of spacey textures. Local sound spinsters Soporus poured wave after wave of ambient bliss over a cozy room.

Form Fermentery proved a wonderful forum for the show. Stories & tasty beers were served up by Ethan, Scott, & the rest of the local crew for hours afterward. Oh, & check out that LEGIT poster (thanks, Will!)…

We’ve been busy this year!

While the physical version of the new Steve Scott album, “Cross My Heat” drops this Friday (10/13), we went ahead & pushed the streaming version to Spotify early! You can check out HSAL #38 in its entirety…nearly an hour’s worth featuring Scott’s first new recordings in nearly two decades.

We are currently shipping pre-orders for this CD worldwide. Additionally, Scott has physical copies with him in Australia. He’ll be down under for another week, completing a lecture circuit of colleges & conventions before returning to the states.

Live set from Ben Mauch!

Earlier this month, Benjamin Mauch headed into upstate NY to take part in this year’s Northeastern Electro-Music Festival. The folks putting on the festival have been posting full performances on social media today & Mauch’s set just went up! within the 28 minute set, there are numerous moments that hearken back to 2016’s “Golden Bay Garden”. There are also foreshadows of his upcoming work. ENJOY!
