HSR 2014 Preview

We’ve got some new releases coming in 2014 that we are excited to announce. We continue with our agenda of releasing great music by great people. I’m (John) working on a limited edition release with our good friends in Cloakroom. Jason continues to write & record incredible music via Sweet Cobra.  We continue to work with our great friends in Louisville with Jaye Jayle and Young Widows. And we’ve added two new bands to our family with Get Rad and Meat Wave.  Details follow:

YOUNG WIDOWS / SWEET COBRA “LIVE AT 3 FLOYDS” SPLIT LP

MEAT WAVE “MEAT WAVE” LP
Chicago’s Meat Wave formed in late 2011. The band’s lineup consists of singer/guitarist Chris Sutter, bassist Joe Gac and drummer Ryan Wizniak. Its members also play in bands like Wide Angles, Elephant Gun and Truman & His Trophy. By combining contemporary influences with traditional punk tendencies, they have created a sound that’s urgent, unique and deserving of attention. The Self-Titled LP, the band’s first 9 songs (originally released on an edition of 100 cassettes), was recorded in April 2012 in Todd’s basement and Billy Corgan’s old garage. We are pleased to present them to you on vinyl. 500 pressed. Check out a MEAT WAVE on YouTube.

We will also be repressing the PELICAN “March Into The Sea” LP on a new color, and have some new releases in the works with CLOAKROOM, THE LIFE AND TIMES, and more. See you soon.

Thanks,
John & Jason
