    Default Andrew and Bryan are starting a record label

    Hey ladies and gents!

    Myself and Andrew (bballarl) have been working for quite a while on this project of ours. It's affectionately known as Heaven Hill Recordings.

    Basically, we decided that we like good music and we would like to share some of that music with the world. As a result, today we've launched our website and label, and we will be releasing songs from bands that we enjoy, and that we think you'll enjoy as well.

    We're going to focus mostly on vinyl releases because, c'mon, records are awesome. We've got plans to do tapes and our first release is a digital single named Jennifer Dear, from Andrew's band, the Tet Holiday. Believe you me, it's really good. That one we're doing the pay what you want scheme, so anything you'd like to pay for it'd be appreciated.

    We're not seeking to rake in the big bucks by doing this; we just want to help good bands get their music out there in a cool format working with people who like their stuff.

    So, check out our site. Its http://www.heavenhillrecordings.com. We have the first single up, and the other two bands that we've started working with, Th Mrcy Hot Sprngs and Craft Spells, have some samples of their stuff on the site. We're hoping to become fairly active over the summer, so keep an eye out for this space and on the site (and our facebook at this site, and we hope you like it!

    Hugs and kisses,
    Andrew and Bryan

    A label started by two gentlemen of discriminating taste? Color me intrigued!

    Also, to cut the question off at the pass, no we are not god-fearing religious zealots who had to make sure to include heaven in the title of anything we do. Instead, we are Bob-fearing musical zealots who really really like Husker Du:

    $3.00 initially, but then I fucked up the download (brilliant, I know) so I paid another $1.00 for an additional download code.

    I really really like Jennifer, Dear. Should this be pressed on vinyl, I will definitely be picking up a copy

    Can I be on the label? I'd like to do a song of just me meowing.

    Thanks guys!

    Erik (menikmati) did our web design, and I think I'm speaking for Andrew as well in saying that he did an absolutely killer job, and we're super appreciative.

    I'd also like to acknowledge the work of my former roommate Ryan Hubbard, who did our graphic work, both for the logo and for the Jennifer Dear single. Guy's a talented dude, and I think the stuff he did looks pretty top notch.

    We'll probably never know for sure. Craft Spells is intensely private, so we're just basing it on what we've heard.

    I need to reserve some studio time.

    I've had this song in my head for the past couple of days and it's been like a nicotine-caffeine itch.

    It goes something like this.

    YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAHYEAHYEAHYEAHYEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

    YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAHYEAHYEAHYEAHYEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

    I SAID..

    YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAHYEAHYEAHYEAHYEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

    YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAHYEAHYEAHYEAHYEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Congratulations! I wish you boundless success... personal satisfaction... endless creativity... all that good stuff.

    I will add fame and riches to the list, as long as you don't let it go to your heads.

    Thank you all for showing interest in HHR. We really, really appreciate it, and it means a lot to me and BMackattack.

    Echoing Bryan, Erik did a fantastic job with the web design and was a huge, huge help, so a massive thank-you to him. Also, a massive thanks to Ryan for his killer artwork. I was beyond stoked when he showed me the strawberry design for the single...I think we might do a t-shirt or something with it.

    JorgeC, to answer your question...we will be attempting to have our records in Origami, Amoeba, etc. We're kind of learning as we go (and doing distribution ourselves initially), so it will be a bit of a process. But we will be sure to keep people posted on here, as well as the mailing list and other platforms.

    I am confused by the use of the word 'following' in this post.
