If you’ve already ordered your copy of HSAL #42, your copies will leave our hands with Monday’s post. Perhaps you’ll find the additional goodies to your liking…
If you haven’t scored a copy of the new split b/t KillGXXD & Irving, there are a few ways to do so:
- Tomorrow night (Saturday, 02/24) @ Speakertree (Lynchburg VA). KillGXXD has turned his appearance into both a release & “going away” party. KillGXXD’s about to escape our fair Hill City for the confines of the Garden State. This will be the last time to catch our fella as a “local”.
- Pre-order the cassette from our bandcamp page. The full release drops on Friday, 03/03, but all orders are shipping now!
HSAL #42: KILLGXXD & Irving, “KILLGXXD/Irving”
Our forty-second release is a super special collaboration! Thirty-five minutes across two EP’s that feature a pair of producers bringing their unique flavors to the Ol’ Dominion.
On the A side, KILLGXXD (Virginia by way of Los Angeles) drops eight cuts as a proper follow-up to his debut a few months back. This EP manages to stir up nostalgic samples & familial shout-outs without feeling outdated or played out. Like the perfect amusement park ride, you’ll find yourself coming back to this “feel good” over & over & over again.
On the B side, Irving (Virginia by way of Chicago) cuts & pastes his way through a “megamix” of stylistic left turns & speed bumps. The schizophrenic energy ushers the mind into the VIP & challenges the ears to decide between the come down & one more mysterious elixir. **Irving appears courtesy of Good Glass**
Both sides of this cassette ebb & flow like two house parties that have been psychically linked!
AVAILABILITY: DIG, CASS (LTD run on SONIC BLUE shells)

The new year is wide open & your friendly neighborhood record label is picking up where we left off in 2017. First off, we have worked out a deal to release the new Opin EP! We’ve been friends with frontman Landis Wine since before the label’s inception & we’re stoked for the opportunity to work with his new outfit.
We are also dropping a couple of split cassettes. One is new output from KillGXXD (a Virginia by-way-of SoCal producer) & Irving (a Virginia by-way-of Chicago producer). The other is a collaborative affair between HSAL alums. Benjamin Mauch & Todd Webb (Oahu) will file share their way to a special set!
We are also in the final steps of releasing the new TLVS EP. The band is currently mixing down the five-track effort & will have the project mastered by the folks at Polyphonic Workshop. It’s been a long time coming & we can’t wait to share it with you all…
