Good Dog Nigel‘s debut 12″ is steady rolling off of merch tables as they continue showing up on stage after stage. Word from our partners at Infinite Repeats is that the official (full color) jackets should be shipping out any day now. This also means the deluxe editions that many of you have been waiting for will also be hitting the mailboxes soon. If you haven’t check out this party, what gives?
This digital EP by You’re Jovian drops on the first Friday of April! It’s the rest of the work Elliott did up in Philly during the sessions for “The Sound Of Who We Are” last year. Look for it at all the usual online troughs (Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, & of course, bandcamp).
“autremonde: The Collected Commercials Of Death”
The other digital release from HSAL next month. This full-length (clocking in at nearly 80 minutes) is the result of over a decade’s worth of heart & soul from one of the most reclusive friends of the label. Andres Mementomori stirs up memories of late 70’s Eno, mid-80’s Gabriel, & “The Drift” by Scott Walker. Vocals are scarce but emotions run high throughout this journey. The entire palette will present itself on April 19th. Oh, & you can preview a cut from this album in the soundcloud player on the left-hand side of the screen. ( <——— )
This summer, HSAL has the honor of partnering with Virginia Beach soundsmith Oahu (sonic moniker of cartoonist Todd Webb) for a duel EP release. The 2CD collection will prove to be the stuff of legend. On the first disc, Webb works out soundscapes based on source material provided by Deerhoof guitarist John Dieterich! The second disc will contain a highlights set of “daily bleeps” curated by Webb himself! NOTE: Not sure what daily bleeps are? Get educated here…this series is one of the things that first endeared us to Oahu’s output.
Yup, this one’s gonna SLAY! The LP is tracked & the band is in the throes of mixing these nine cuts down. Nothing concrete (at least nothing we can officially announce yet) but it looks like the release party for this one, slated for a weekend just shy of peak color on the trees, should prove to be coolest party of the year. We know – bold prediction. That’s how much we believe in this record.
In case you missed it, Good Dog Nigel through a killer party this past weekend in celebration of their debut 12″. New Boss & TLVS stirred up the anxious crowd before Nigel took the stage & tore through a sixty-minute revue that focused on the band’s current output. Highlights included a brand new tune featuring New Boss’ Devon Sproule on vocal harmonies as well as the perennial set closer “I Don’t Want It“.
Due to some press issues, the intended full color jackets were not quite ready for the February 22nd release. Lost Woods Print (run by Thomas Dean, who also runs Infinite Repeats & plays in Nigel) partnered with Parker to create some limited edition jackets for the show. All orders shipped with these jackets will receive the actual jackets via USPS once they are in hand.
If you happen to score one of these limited edition jackets, we’d love to see how you would spruce it up. Break out the crayons & really make it your own copy! As we see your handiwork, we’ll get ’em posted on our Instagram feed.
There are now TWO ways to pre-order the upcoming 12″ EP from Good Dog Nigel. For $25 USD, you can score the SUPER LIMITED EDITION “DELUXE” PACKAGE from Infinite Repeats. This version includes the vinyl copy, a screen-printed poster, a t-shirt, & more…

Out ahead of the EP release, Good Dog Nigel offer a glimpse into the magic that is to come. “I Can’t Be“, the lead track from “The Implied Sunrise“. At the onset, this track comes off like the memory of a hazy afternoon spent with friends. As the melody walks into the room, heads begin bopping to the rhythm. The temperature rises with the energy of anticipation until the moment that a sweaty dance party erupts with as the songs comes down from a lofty peak. Sounds too good to be true?
