    TAHRC-145 BLOOD TIDE ‘MOON’ C20 NOW AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER / DOWNLOAD

    Today, we’re putting up preorders and downloads for a new cassette from Wichita’s BLOOD TIDE.  This band is the brainchild of Matthew Clagg (DOMESTIC DRONE, MONEY BADGER, MYSTERY BLOOD), who has used the moniker for a host of different recording projects, songs and ideas over the last several years.  In fact, the name for Clagg’s current dark-punk band MYSTERY BLOOD was a fusion between his solo workings as BLOOD TIDE and his longtime musical companion/collaborator Mason Monigold’s own solo wizardry as MYSTERY BONES OF INFANT ISLAND. This is exciting for us, because although we’ve released a lot of music for these guys and different incarnations of their music, this is the first proper BLOOD TIDE release (with their first appearance on a TAHRC release coming back in March of 2016 on their collaborative tape I AM THE SUN).  And in my humble opinion, it is some of the finest songwriting and recording performances that I’ve ever heard from them.  Now a full three piece band (featuring Monigold and fellow TAHRCer Doug Lynn of FILIUS SOL), they have a proper EP to support live. This album was expertly recorded at FLAT BLACK STUDIOS in Iowa City, IA, by our good friend Luke Tweedy.  The rhythm and relationship between Tweedy’s engineering and the performances on this EP are nothing short of ideal; there’s a patience and openness to these recordings that really brings new and hidden sounds to the surface.  If you’re a fan of any of the bands in the DOMESTIC …

    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, …
