TLVS in the “studio”.

TLVS Chapel Pic (6x6, 150)

PC: Chris Schlarb

Over the weekend, TLVS commandeered the chapel in Lynchburg’s Old City Cemetery for a recording session with long time friend & studio wunderkind Chris Schlarb. Nathan & Joe worked out legit versions of two new tunes, “Fragaria (Virginia)” & “Stencils”. Huge thanks to label friends Lucas Hayden & Nathan Towles for lending gear. Once mixed down & mastered, the band looks to share these with the world.

Return of the Mauch!

HSAL has recently learned that Benjamin Mauch will be returning to the states later this year! On a personal bent, we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome a friend home. On a professional bent, we are excited by the potential for new material. To celebrate Ben’s imminent arrival, we are sharing his latest soundcloud jam here. Oh, & you can stream a set from the last time Ben was in the states here.

There’s still time…

The Kickstarter campaign for the Lloyd Harmon EP is winding down (closes next Thursday, 06/30). To continue driving the effort, Lloyd is playing a special solo set downtown at the White Hart this evening. All funds brought it will go toward tracking, mixing, & mastering the EP, which the trio hopes to begin work on next month with Chris Schlarb. Live sounds go down at 8P. See you there, K?

NOTE: Totally stole this pic from Harmon’s facebook page! Consider it a peek into the mind of the genius.

15 Days & COUNTING…

Just over two weeks remaining to support one of our fair city’s finest acts!

In case you are unfamiliar with what’s going down, here’s the skinny: Lloyd Harmon is raising funds for the studio time that will translate into his HSAL debut. The goal is for the trio (Lloyd, Tyler, & Judah) to spend a week with Chris Schlarb in mid-July. From now until then, the trio will be playing shows in support of this effort. Additionally, Harmon will be seeking to convert interest into action from his fanbase & beyond via this Kickstarter.

Assuming you are familiar with Kickstarter, Harmon’s gift tiers for support are rather standard, except that you will be receiving one-of-a-kind visual & sonic art from LLOYD HARMON! To say this guy is on another plane is to understand his magic. Custom tees, exclusive access to live performances, & more are being offered up in exchange for assistance in making this record a reality…

WELCOME TO THE FAMILY!

HSAL Roster Ad (May 2016)

Your friendly neighborhood record label is near ecstatic to share our new lineup! Assuming you have been following us since the beginning, you have seen/heard records from TLVS & asentimentalsong (both acts were part of our 10″ series a few years back). No introductions needed there. Over the past year, honeybrandy has developed into an ethereal drone project all to itself (both Joey & Nathan are members of TLVS). On the strength of recent Lynchstock performances & sheer creative output, HSAL is uber-proud to welcome KillGXXD & Lloyd Harmon to the family. Both of these additions will be working on new releases over the summer months. For KillGXXD, it will be his first foray into live instrumentation as he partners with several folks from the Hill City musical scene. Lloyd Harmon, alongside of his stunning rhythm section, will be tracking material for a new EP with Chris Schlarb (countless collaborative recordings, the Psychic Temple being his most recent trend).

As we work through the back half of 2016, look for the following releases to surface:

  • #29: honeybrandy/Oahu – (AUG/SEP) split cassette with each group presenting a single 20+ minute composition!
  • #30: KillGXXD – (late winter/early spring) CDEP mixing original material & a choice cover or two…LIVE INSTRUMENTS!
  • #31: Lloyd Harmon – (early fall) CDEP of “RA-K35H” material. Mainly the trio, but a few guests may sneak in!
