HSAL #39: Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, “Live At The Old City Cemetery”
To celebrate the release of HSAL #31
, Jeremiah drove down to Lynchburg (where his debut EP was recorded) to reconnect with friends. The result a packed house, some stellar opening support (Wesley Montgomery
), & an hour of Harmon casting spells with his voice. A KILLER memory for sure.
Your friendly neighborhood record label took it upon ourselves to capture the set, edit it down to a roughly thirty-minute collection of jams, get the mix mastered, & deliver this gift to ears near & far. Contained within this document are seven performances (a single from the debut EP, a Roberta Flack cover, & five new pieces), the excitement of a supportive crowd, the squeaking of pews, & the occasional train pushing past the Chapel.
Thanks to the Old City Cemetery & Arboretum for use of this incredible space.
- Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon – Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Keys, Piano

HSAL #30: KillGXXD, “Loosie (C’mon)”
THE HELMET IS HERE! Rather than lazily lean into stereotype, KillGXXD looks to concoct mixtures of house, R&B, and electronic music. This story is all about the beat!
This twenty-one minute collection of bits & pieces was harvested from KillGXXD’s hard drives. Though a couple of these selections have remained hidden until now (“Never Fumble“, “Truly Something“), many of these sounds originally surfaced on soundcloud (among other places) over the past few years.
As HSAL assists in instigating the next chapter of this artist’s story, we thought it prudent to share some of the work that made us fall hard for him in the first place.
AVAILABILITY: DIG only
ARTWORK: assembled by HSAL

NOTE: Be on the lookout for a KillGXXD cassette with all new material around Valentine’s Day!

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.
As the first official weekend of autumn gets underway, we here at HSAL wanted to share how happy we are at the level of interest in all of our recent (& not so recent) releases. Now that most of our 2017 releases are in house, we’ve been dropping off armloads of packages to the local post office. It’s been great to see HSAL action shipping out to points the world over (looking at you, Australia!). the support you continue to show us around new sounds from Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, Steve Scott, honeybrandy, & more melts our hearts.
We are days away from restocking HSAL #32 & will be reopening sales for Ben’s full-length as soon as those creamsicle colored cassettes are in our possession. Oh, & we’re still working out plans to make 2018 just as wild as 2017 has played out. We’re partnering with some folks for 12″ remix EP from our Carolina buds Band & The Beat. We’re staying on Mr. Roots to finish up the HSAL debut for KillGXXD (some of his work is available in the NEW COMP over on the left-hand side of this page). Speaking of the new streaming comp, there are samples from most of our new releases, as well as live cuts from Jeremiah & friend to the label Lucid You (a super soulful take on shoegaze. Oh, & this guy’s voice? #toomuch). Plenty more action to gossip about as details materialize…
Effective immediately, you can pre-order the new Steve Scott album, “Cross My Heat” from the HSAL bandcamp. Unlike anything we’ve released thus far, HSAL #38 is an hour of storytelling prose set to a backdrop of ethereal synths & far eastern field recordings (check out lead single “With Any Luck” below). Some of the material represented on “Heat” has been floating around the internet (in demo form) for years. Now, for the first time in nearly twenty years, fans will drink in the sights & sounds of Scott’s mind as he occasionally breaks the surface of experience at random parts of the globe.
Street date for HSAL #38 is October 13th, but pre-orders will ship out WELL BEFORE that date. Don’t be surprised if your pre-order package includes some additional HSAL action as well.
With their debut LP arriving to the HSAL offices in a few weeks, Joey & Nathan are prepping for an eventful fall in support of “Deaf Sharp“. Their local release show will be at the Schewel Theater in the Riverviews Bldg on Friday, October 6th. The evening begins with Long Live The Pilot (they helped out with honeybrandy’s Cocteau Twins cover for HSAL #36) playing the Craddock-Terry Gallery from 6P – 8P for “First Friday”. The show gets under way immediately following First Friday. Todd Webb will open the evening with an Oahu set, then will be one of the guests who sit in with honeybrandy. There will be a cash/card bar during the show & Speakertree will be selling deluxe editions of “Deaf Sharp”.
Look for more dates announced throughout the fall & winter. To give you an idea of what these shows will sound/feel like, honeybrandy have been capturing snippets of their recent rehearsals:
JEREMIAH LLOYD HARMON!
We are currently working with Jeremiah to book an East Coast tour in March. Stay tuned for dates as they are confirmed! Still haven’t heard his debut EP? Tony Rinaldi, who plays Moog on the EP calls these tunes “among the most mind-blowing stuff I’ve heard.” Pick up a copy of HSAL #31 here…
We have made a second run of cassettes for Ben’s gorgeous full-length, “Golden Bay Garden” (HSAL #32)! This time around, it’s solid orange shells with ice white printing on the sides. Ben will have these for sale when he plays the Bazaar in Roanoke on the 16th. We should have them on the bandcamp site around the same time.
Pre-orders for Steve’s new full-length, “Cross My Heat” (first new material in nearly two decades!), will begin on Friday, 09/15. Steve will be taking copies with him for his upcoming dates in Australia. Look for the CD to be available stateside in October.
