New Sounds From Ben Mauch!

Mauch‘s been solidifying his rig for the past several months, parcing out “neat gadgets” from the “gear that takes my set to the next level”. With a smaller footprint & bigger sound, Ben is starting down the path to new sounds. Rumor has him branching out later this year with a new tape (more details as they surface). In the meantime, check this new piece, “Digital Burden” that was just leaked via Soundcloud. #therealchill

honeybrandy LIVE!

Capture

honeybrandy was part a wonderful evening of “out” sounds in Richmond last week. Hosted by “the Colloquial Orchestra” & organized by Cherub Records‘ PJ Sykes, the bill also included Amplifier On Fire, Lunar (who are really great!) & a Sykes’ led “house band” that recently supported Jandek at his RVA tour stop.

Joey & Nathan were able to capture their set with some lo-fi gear (thanks to Ben Mauch for manning the “record” button). You can stream the entire set over at our soundcloud page.

HSAL #17 (Split 10″ #2)

White Laces & The Snowy Owls

HSAL #17: white laces / the snowy owls split 10″ EP $15 PPD

*this is the second of our split 10″ series. the idea is to feature one of our own on the A side, with a friend of the label holding down the B side.*

this RVA centric release showcases some of the finest tunes from the current live set of white laces. the lead single, “hands in mexico”, was leaked online & taken to by just about every hip east coast blog. the rest of the A side leans towards new potential for the four piece. capital city up & comers the snowy owls turn in their own super hot single (“could”, featuring a killer boy/girl call & response chorus), as well as three other scorchers from their live set, which has been earning the group great shows around the mid-atlantic for nearly a year.

HSAL #09

HSAL #09

HSAL 09: White Laces, “White Laces” $5 PPD

“white laces” represents the first hard copies of landis wine’s output since the disbanding of richmond’s cinemasophia. where that group focus on darker energies & tightly wound instrumentation, wine’s new material seems more at peace with it’s own skin. think of it as a dirtied up 21st century take on mid 90’s guitar rock. everything is turned up to 11 with wine’s voice channeling a young bob pollard. NOTE: c20 contains exclusive material not available for download on the b side!

AVAILABILITY: orange tint c20 + digital download, limited run of 100
