MARRICE ANTHONY hitting y’all with a quick verse for this Tuesday morning. His new EP, ‘SUMMER TRAINING,’ is available via our ONLINE CATALOG, and can be downloaded through the TAHRC BANDCAMP. Don’t sleep.
TAHRC-054 MARRICE ANTHONY ‘SUMMER TRAINING EP’ CD / CS ON SALE FRI SEPT 26!
Tomorrow we’ll be putting the absolutely stellar SUMMER TRAINING EP on sale from Wichita, Kansas lyricist MARRICE ANTHONY (also known as M.A. LEE). I’ve been listening to SUMMER TRAINING since Marrice brought it by my house this summer and we scheduled out a release, and it’s really one of those albums that gets better and better the more you listen to it. LEWELHEDS will hopefully be bringing a lot more music to you via TAHRC, and I know that he was recently in the studio in Kansas City with some undisclosed affiliates – so cop this release and keep your eyes open for the next one! You can stream SUMMER TRAINING from our SOUNDCLOUD page (embedded below), download it from the TAHRC BANDCAMP, and you can check out LEWELHEDS at the NORTH END URBAN ARTS FESTIVAL in the beautiful NOMAR PLAZA in Wichita, KS with EVASIVE FLOWERS, FUTURE HORSE and THE NEW IMPERIALISM – I’m sure he’ll have copies of the release for sale! Listen to SUMMER TRAINING below:
TAHRC-057 POSTBOY ‘S/T’ C30 ON SALE NOW!
Wichita, KS pop slayers POSTBOY were kind enough to let me release their debut EP for them on cassette, and it’s really one of the best records of its kind I’ve heard in a while. It’s got a really refined feel with lots of precise and well-orchestrated instrumentation, but it’s also a pretty raw record, with lots of lo-fi leanings. It really reminds me of the days when bands like AND ACADEMY and PAPER AIRPLANES were regularly playing shows in town. It’s really exciting to be working with younger musicians in the area, and POSTBOY will hopefully be a band we can continue to release music for. There is a EP release show in the works, and we’ll share that info with y’all when we know something solid! This self titled EP is available for purchase HERE, and you can jam ‘Avocados: The Postmodernist Depression’ below!
LIMITED EDITION DREAMCRUSHER ‘HAINE’ CD NOW AVAILABLE IN ONLINE STORE
TAHRC-055 DREAMCRUSHER ‘HAINE’ is going to be available on extremely limited edition (15) compact disc, with transparency cover layout by yours truly. It is a continual pleasure to release music for Luwayne, his art and music push both positivity and negativity to their limits. If I were you, I would jump on one of these, because I assume they will sell out very quickly. If you want to buy one in person, please catch me at any $BADGER / LIVING GHOST show, grab from the online catalog, or grab one from THE MAN HIMSELF. Check out a live clip from last night of his performance of the first track off the EP, ‘Memories,’ below:
TAHRC-056 DEATHBLACK FLOWERS ‘THE TRAIL OF YOUR BLOOD IN THE SNOW’ CD / CS ON SALE NOW
We’re extremely proud to offer DEATHBLACK FLOWER‘s new full length album, THE TRAIL OF YOUR BLOOD IN THE SNOW, for sale on CD and cassette today. DEATHBLACK FLOWERS has taken many forms over the years, at one point being a largely acoustic project for guitarist Christopher Mackie, and it’s also taken shape as a two-piece (with producer and bass player Eric Harrison filling in on drums) and four-piece live (and perhaps other incarnations that I wasn’t around to witness), but the sound and form of all the music they released in the last year (TAHRC-010 ‘KILLING THE DIVINE ANIMAL & TAHRC-031 ‘V.V.V.V.V.’) really comes together on this album. Some of the songs here are also performed by Mackie on his GILDED FLOWER ‘FOLDING LIGHT’ EP, and it’s really excellent to hear songs from that release played with a full band and Todd Woolard’s powerful drum presence.
It should be obvious from that giant run-on sentence that I really like this album a lot, and I’m hoping those of you who have picked up their EPs from me in the past will grab this as well. As usual, DEATHBLACK FLOWERS performs in Wichita on a regular basis, so if you’re able, go out to one of their shows and pick up a CD or cassette from them. They are also available for you to cop via the ONLINE CATALOG. Their album is available to stream below, jam it and then make the according purchases:
TAHRC-055 DREAMCRUSHER ‘HAINE’ C30 ON SALE NOW!
DREAMCRUSHER‘s blazing new cassette ‘HAINE‘ is available for purchase from our ONLINE CATALOG today; I’m really excited to be releasing another awesome EP for the homie. This release is honestly different than last year’s INCINERATOR; there’s a focus on melody and form that contextualizes the chaos we’re used to getting from DREAMCRUSHER, including a totally amazing PSYCHEDELIC FURS cover that is almost too good to believe. Dark nihilist noise on a decidedly shoegaze path, but don’t take my word for it. There are 50 of these cassettes in the initial run, and there’s no guarantee that they will be reissued, so strike while the iron is hot, and grab yourself a copy now. DREAMCRUSHER is performing at 9/11 NOISEFEST today in Austin, TX; you can catch him live there at 6pm today, or here in Wichita, KS on September 18th with WILLOW WYTCH, LIVING GHOST and FLOWER OF FLESH AND BLOOD at KIRBY’S BEER STORE. Listen to the entire HAINE release below via DREAMCRUSHER‘s SOUNDCLOUD page.
DREAMCRUSHER + FLOWER OF FLESH AND BLOOD PERFORMING AT 9/11 NOISEFEST, AUSTIN TX
TAHRC noise mages DREAMCRUSHER and FLOWER OF FLESH AND BLOOD are hitting the road today to join a ton of other noise artists at 9/11 NOISEFEST in Austin, TX this weekend, September 11th at Club 1808. We’re extremely stoked for them, playing with heavy hitters like SMOKEY EMERY, DROMEZ and SECRET ABUSE (not to mention like 40+ more artists or something insane like that), and we’re sending a little mini-distro with them. DREAMCRUSHER will also have copies of the HAINE cassette that is going on sale tomorrow in our ONLINE CATALOG. For any of you Austin, TX types or anyone heading out to the festival this weekend, stop and check them out; they play at 5:30 and 6:00pm respectively on the inside stage.
