    AVAILABLE NOW: GOLDEN LIVING ROOM, DREAMVERB, ROOT THE POWER MIXTAPE

    We’re really pleased to have several new cassettes ready to order and in the hands of several TAHRC artists, after what was (for us) a long catching up and repairing period for TAHRC.  Not only did I have my first son born in September, but we also had a cassette duplicator go down around the same time, which put a real delay on shipments of several summer preorders, and forced me to reschedule the release of a handful more.  This turned out to be a MASSIVE delay for the label, and for a lot of our goodly customers, who had to wait for me to sort out the gigantic amount of orders that may have been damaged.  We shipped more than 80 orders since that time, and should be finally catching up on all the overdue orders (please email me at hollandflr@gmail.com if you’re still waiting on something – I know I still missed a couple of you).  Thankfully, all of you are wonderfully patient and supportive, and I’ll be able to catch up on shipping out all delayed orders and get started on making a few new cassettes available to you all. I have continued to work on releases, even though the schedule has been pushed back a couple of times – such is the life of a DIY label.  So today, we’re skipping preorders and going straight to sale for a few awesome cassettes to kick off the month of December: GOLDEN LIVING ROOM‘s POST-INTERNET cassette reissue, DREAMVERB‘s …

    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, …
