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.
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.
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.
