Hydra Head in the Noose

It's a busy summer over at Hydra Head, though the timeliness of this "news" is questionable.  We shall improve.

The big, local story is that Hydra Head labelmates TORCHE and BIG BUSINESS will be performing for free at another Scion showcase taking place on August 5th at the Knitting Factory. We still think that TORCHE's last album, Meanderthal, was one of the best relases of 2008.  Undeniable in the way that QUICKSAND's Slip was back in the mid-90s. We missed the DREDG shows so this will be our first opportunity to see them as a three-piece. Can they still bring the power? Check out Meanderthal and their recent 12" here and here.  To RSVP for the show, click on the poster below:

The unreleased first album from HARVEY MILK, Self-Titled, is available as a 2XLP from Vacation Vinyl but appears to be sold-out. Keep checking for more. Recorded by Bob Weston (Shellac) and mastered in 2008 from the original cassette. this vinyl version should make you forget about your download.
