…so, a few updates to keep you informed on the comings & goings of your friendly neighborhood record label:
– TLVS has completed tracking & mixing for their half of the upcoming split 10″ EP with norfolk’s long division. the A side of HSAL #16 clocks in a just over 15 minutes & includes a finally realized version of “heather majestic purple”, which was one of the first demos ever recorded as a two piece (back in late 2008). also included is the duo’s newest composition, “matisse” (you can hear an early version of the track here). the B side, featuring two long division selections that didn’t make it to last year’s “calm before“, will be tracked at the harding street assembly lab by joe & nathan. if you have caught the band live of late, you know that the extra material broods a bit more than the upbeat “calm”. this first entry into our split 10″ series should prove an exciting launch pad for more great works to come!
– asentimentalsong is also tracking material for an upcoming split 10″ EP, which will be split with brooklyn’s guilty ghosts. the goal is to create a single 15 minute piece that calls to mind last year’s inclusion on HSAL #12, “rejoyful“. as for guilty ghosts, we understand that the B side will be a bit different than his upcoming LP, “veils” (which, on a personal note, we can not wait to hear!!!). the ghost warns of a potential guitar duet, as well as outtakes from the aformentioned full-length.
– finally, white laces, goodwill falcon, alaska, & TLVS are all in the midst of playing shows & booking even more shows. you can see what they have already worked out here. you can reach out to the bands directly if you are up for booking a show…to our knowledge, none of them bite.
