Joy Sores were (are?) an excellent shoegazed-infused punk band from northern Texas (Denton/Dallas area).  After a blistering set at ICTFEST in Wichita, KS in 2013, I was able to meet them and talk about all the bands and friends we had in common (mostly, Ten Grand and Battle Royale).  It just so happened that they were planning on recording as soon as they got back to Denton the next day, and I expressed some great desire to release it whenever they got it done.  They contacted me no less than a week later with this incredible little jammer, and Riding High was born.  Joy Sores have everything that I want from a live band - too much volume, too solid of melodies, and the kind of love and energy that keeps a band alive for years.  Riding High will be in print again eventually, but for now, check the knowledge below:

Excellent new jams from Troy James Weaver!  In addition to being a talented writer and novelist, my guy can pull a great sounding solo record out of thin air, too.  Totally touching and perfect lo-fi jams that recall Sebadoh's Freed Weed, Jesus and Mary Chain, and more.

New music from NOT COPS, off their quarantine performance at WAVE in Wichita, KS.  NC has a sizable crop of new music that is shaping up to be their 2nd LP, and you can hear many of the new jams recorded for the first time on this cassette.  Loud band makes loud music!

Two of TAHRC's long-running champions have collaborated on a 10 minute

EP of gigantic proportions.  RAW ANTHONY is the joining up of RAW SPACE as hip-hop producer and MARRICE ANTHONY as the best rapper alive.  I guarantee that this is the hottest EP you will hear this summer.  If you don't know, dont ask - just listen.  Preorders for limited cassette available now.
