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.
…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!)…
For a single, discounted price (not to mention a significant break on S/H), you can score a copy of every title we created a physical copy for during 2017:

Order yours today!
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.
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!
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.
