    TAHRC-140 NOT COPS ‘ALTER NATIVE FACTS’ CS NOW AVAILABLE VIA MAILORDER / DOWNLOAD

    It has been some considerable months (for us, anyway) since we had a new release to announce to you, and I have to be honest – it feels really good to be back to work!  I took a sizable 6-month break (with the exception of a few releases that are still available in our ONLINE CATALOG) when my son was born back in September, and since then, I’ve been focusing on getting my equipment in order and fulfilling all of the many delayed shipments that caused us to get really backed up last summer/fall.  My deep thanks and gratitude to all of the artists and customers who waited so patiently for their orders – y’all are the best, and have solidified my belief in the community of people who have supported the label for the last four years.  None of this would be possible without y’all! Today, we’re releasing the demo cassette for NOT COPS, which I recorded and performed on along with the very talented Weston Townsley (who played drums in TAHRC bands like THE WORLD PALESTINE and FAIRNESS) and Frank Bravo (of DREAMVERB, BELLAFONTE and FAIRNESS fame).  The three of us wrote and recorded these songs at rehearsals between December of 2017 and March of this year, and played a few shows last month as a three piece band.  Frank is an incredible musician, and found himself in too many projects (he’s also heading up a new band called ZONE ENDER that will hopefully have a TAHRC release …

    AVAILABLE NOW FOR PREORDER AND D/L: FAINT GLOW/BLSPHM, MARRICE ANTHONY

    We’ve got a couple of top shelf releases coming your direction in the next couple of weeks, and I couldn’t be more excited to offer them both for preorder and download today!  We’ve got a brand new album from MARRICE ANTHONY, and a quite overdue split cassette between Lawrence’s FAINT GLOW and Seattle’s BLSPHM.  Both cassettes will begin shipping on Dec. 18th.  Let’s dive into these real quickly, so you know what you’re getting into: MARRICE ANTHONY isn’t a stranger to you if you’ve kept your eye on what’s happening with TAHRC in the last couple of years.  He’s essentially our resident lyricist; he’s dropped more albums on the label than any other MC, and he’s 100% on his game with the new cassette.  Clocking in at just over an hour, it’s a collection of songs that MARRICE dropped over the last several months on Soundcloud, in a series that he dubbed #MARRICEMONDAYS.  He shows his dedication to real hip hop lyricism and style, all the while consistently finding new ways to express his particular flow.  And he’s had a host of different producers that he’s collaborated with on this one, with 17 tracks (and a couple of bonus joints for the download).  MARRICE is super consistent, and always comes through with the highest quality hip hop, and THE NIMBUS FILES, VOL.2 is absolutely no exception.  You can stream the entire album below, head over here to BANDCAMP to download the entire cassette plus the bonus tracks, or you can …

    INTRODUCING THIS AIN’T HEAVEN PUBLISHING CONCERN | READ TROY JAMES WEAVER’S ‘FUNERAL’ FROM WITCHITA STORIES

    I am particularly thrilled to introduce a completely new undertaking that TAHRC is entering into.  Before starting This Ain’t Heaven back in 2013, I had spent extensive time studying to be a English academic and creative writer at Wichita State University and the University of Iowa, respectively.  More precisely, I spent about 8 years working on becoming a writer in some format. Those experiences have really been driving me lately to consider working on more writing – and given the model and the inspiration that TAHRC has been for me in the last couple of years, giving me a vehicle to release music that I know is excellent that others haven’t heard, I feel like it’s something important that I can do to help the label grow and expand the concept to include different mediums of art.  I’m going to attempt to do that same thing here in the TAHPC (that’s This Ain’t Heaven Publishing Concern) section of our website – offer up some written work of various kinds (editorial, prose, criticism, reviews, whatever isn’t lame and is worth reading) that I feel might be worth consumption, both from myself and several other contributors. Joining me in this endeavor, and helping me to establish this new publishing concern is my friend Troy James Weaver.  Troy lives here in Wichita with his wife and dogs, has been a longtime member of the DIY music community, and has published a couple of novels in the last couple years that are quite excellent, …
