    NEW TODAY: D / D / J / G ‘VIBES AT BAIKAL LAKE’ CS

    Summer is officially here in Kansas, and that means we’re just about ready to announce our release schedule for the months of July and August.  We’ve got an enormous amount of new music heading your way in the coming weeks, and we thought we’d kick the whole thing off with a new release from D / D / J / G, a long-running experimental collaboration between myself (Daniel Davis) and Jackson Graham (hence the initials).  We’re offering up something completely different this time – this cassette represents recording in new spaces, with new instruments (Jackson performed exclusively on vibraphone), methods and concepts at work, and we’re quite pleased with the results.  The music was recorded both at the Duerksen Fine Arts Center at WSU and at my own TAHRC Labs, and as is our custom, the instrumentation was improvised, although in this instance, each of us recorded our instrumentals at different times and different locations.  We’re hurrying up to get this cassette released in anticipation of a couple of live performances (our first since performing with RAW SPACE last December).  The first performance will be this Sunday, June 26th @ THE DONUT WHOLE with Brooklyn weirdos BABY BIRDS DON’T DRINK MILK and our homie DREAMVERB, and we’ll be opening an all ages show at the same venue on July 6th with Chicago dark punks TOUPEE and OLD MAN CREAKY BONES.  We hope you enjoy the new cassette – it is available for purchase in the ONLINE CATALOG, and can be …

    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, …
