‘Round the HSAL Campfire!

HSAL #46 - Cover Art (2 x 2 150)

There is SO, SO much going on here at your friendly neighborhood record label that it is truly difficult to keep all of our thoughts & dreams in order, but we’re trying as hard as we can! With more of 2018 behind us than before us, we figured it was high time to drop a dime on everything that we have in store for the rest of this, another stellar year for HSAL!

First off, pre-orders are now open for HSAL #46 – the new 12″ EP from Virginia Beach’s You’re Jovian! “The Sound Of Who We Are” is comprised of a five-song set captured up in Philly with studio wizard du jour Jeff Zeigler. Artwork was assembled with the aid of Doug Nicholson (Long Division). The physical copy will be a one-sided 12″ on cut on clear wax. We are also working out some cool companion pieces to ship with these EP’s. Needless to say we are ecstatic for this batch of tunes & how the project is turning out. Additional warm fuzzies for the chance to work with Elliott. Stay tuned…HSAL #47 Cover Art (2 x 2 150)

Also debuting today (08/17/18) is “Learn To Love“, the new single from Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon! This track, cut live at Glass Village Studios with Tim Riordan (Atlas Rhoads), features a delicate yet potent trip through Harmon’s emotion. Tools employed include acoustic piano, cello, & that voice. THAT VOICE! The cover art features a self-portrait selected from Harmon’s ever-growing portfolio. Our hope is that you will find “Learn” (cataloged as HSAL #47) as entrancing as we have. It’s available for stream at the usual outlets & for “pay what you want” download via HSAL bandcamp
HSAL #44 B Front Cover Art (2 x 2 150)As many of you are aware, HSAL #44 is going to be this year’s entry in the ongoing “Lynchstock” compilation, where we thematically celebrate our hometown’s music festival. The summer has brought a litany of changes & amendments to the original set, but we are super thrilled to have landed where we did on this one! Five local acts (L.A.Dies, Overlook Hotel, TLVS, Quick On My Feet, & Good Dog Nigel) are dropping new never-before-released material tracked up in Richmond with Allen Bergendahl (Shy Low, Jonathan Vassar, TONS of other Virginia acts). Additionally, they are covering bands from the Hill City’s past (Swirl, Brian Hall/Snake Forcefield, A New Dawn Fades, Vroom, & Order). It has been such a blast to make this complete labor of love. There’s already talks of a second volume. Physical copies (CD) will be available on October 20th at the festival with digital copies available shortly thereafter…

Finally, we are still shipping copies of our summer releases (while they last)! Opin just finished tickling the ears of fans across the southeast in support of their “Drifters” EP (HSAL #43). The 12″ jackets were screen printed by Virginia Svengali Thomas Dean. HSAL #41, which doesn’t hit the streets until the 24th features an engaging electronic journey led by trail masters Benjamin Mauch & Oahu, both of whom have spent most of the year supporting their myriad of visual & sonic projects…

Where we’re going, we don’t need vocals!

While cleaning up around HSAL HQ, we found a few of these older cassettes & thought they would be cool to bundle with the new TLVS cassette (which we are also nearly out of!). There are no vocals on any of these releases, yet we firmly behind each artists’ abilities to communicate thoughts, feelings, & attitudes. You may recognize Guilty Ghosts from HSAL #19 – the Brooklyn native’s split 10″ with asentimentalsong. “Dreamers” is the most recent effort from TLVS & features “Claire Kincaid” from their upcoming LP, as well as some non-album material that the duo tracked themselves. HSAL #04 features members of TLVS & drone wunderkinds Parties. All in all, over two hours of space jams over three cassettes, each of which include digital downloads!
