HSAL #39 – “Live At The Old City Cemetery”

HSAL 39 Cover 2 (1800 x 1800)

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, BRNES), & 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.

PERFORMERS:
  • Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon – Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Keys, Piano
  • Nathaniel Roots – Bass Guitar
  • Tyler Coleman – Drums

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…

 

The Goings On!

HONEYBRANDY!

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

BENJAMIN MAUCH!

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.

STEVE SCOTT!

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.

Well, that happened…

There are moments when you can’t help but feel like the stars have aligned & have graced you with something magical. The evening of August 25th, 2017 was just such a moment for everyone who managed to squeeze into the Old City Cemetery Chapel in Lynchburg VA. The opening support was a showcase of the talent brewing in the Hill CIty scene (BRNES, Wesley Montgomery). Once Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon & his accompaniment took to the stage, the room seemed to inhale in suspense. Harmon worked through an hour plus of original material with a few covers wedged in for good measure. Though he spent most of the set with guitar in hand, Jeremiah brought the evening to a close on the highest of notes by taking to chapel’s piano for his final two numbers.

For those of you who missed out (#yourloss), we present the trio’s take on a Roberta Flack cut:

 

ONE DAY LEFT!

As you most likely know, we are hosting Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon & his rhythm section to the Old City Cemetery Chapel (401 Taylor St, 24501) tomorrow night! A few things of note:

  •  There are still a few advance tickets available at Speakertree. $10 gets you the best seat in the house & a copy of Jeremiah’s debut EP.
  • Door cover is $5. We’d love cash, but will accept cards.
  • Doors open at 7P. Feel free to arrive earlier than that & drink in the GORGEOUS that is the Old City Cemetery #treeswingselfies
  • Music should begin at 730P. Wesley Montgomery & BRNES will provide local support.

#TBT: Here’s a live solo take on “War Parade” from the EP.

HSAL #31 (CD/DIG) lands today!

Months in the making, the debut CDEP from Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon is now available! We have shipped out all pre-orders & are currently in the process of dropping copies on shops across the Mid-Atlantic.

We couldn’t be more thrilled with the positive feedback from listeners so far. It will come as no surprise to us for Harmon’s work to end up on year-end lists in a few months.

If you find yourself ’round Lynchburg VA at the end of the month, you should make it out to the release show that we are hosting at the Old City Cemetery Chapel on the 25th. Local support will be provided by Wesley Montgomery & B.A. Scott (both solo sets).
