Tiny Grooves called us "your new favorite label". 

Tiny Grooves is one of my favourite blogs out there today. They show me awesome live videos from bands I already love, and show me new garage/power pop bands that I love soon. Jon, who writes Tiny Grooves, was kind enough to give us a general write up, including a small review of a couple of our releases and a glowing comparison of use to the immortal Burger Records. Thanks to Jon and everything he does over at Tiny Grooves.

Listen to the new Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs 7" (in which were are putting out)

Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs just started recording a new batch of songs, and we're putting the first two done out on a 7" this summer. The band are recording themselves in their jamspace in Kitchener, Ontario on an 8 track. It sounds pretty awesome if you ask me.

Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs - All To Myself 7"
1. All To Myself
2. Do You Feel It Too?
3. Lose That Bitch

Listen to the b-side here.

Sonic Avenues/Steve Adamyk Band European Tour 2012 Dates

In an effort to make this blog a little more useful, I'm going to be posting updates on our bands. Lets start this out with tour dates for the upcoming Sonic Avenues/Steve Adamyk Band European tour. The dates are pretty bare bones at this point as far as local openers are concerned, so if you need more information on a specific show I'd suggest asking the bands themselves. 

Sonic Avenues have the only remaining copies of their Television Youth tape with them for sale during the tour, so make sure to pick one up.

New Tapes: Mother's Children and Strange Attractor

HHR015: Strange Attractor - European Tour 2012 Sampler tape
This is Jeff from Statues' solo project (featuring the other two guys from Statues on drums and guitar and one member of Ultra Violence Ray). It's a lot dirtier and more garage than Statues. Sampler featuring choice cuts from all the Strange Attractor records as well as a bunch of demos/unreleased/alt mixes and all that funs tuff. 20 songs in total, with a download code.

Strange Attractor - Nite Stalker

HHR016: Mother's Children - That's Who! tape
Reissue of their debut full length on Deranged Records. 11 songs of power pop perfection from these Ottawa, Ontario's locals. This one is also to go along with their upcoming European tour, so we don't have a lot of copies for sale as they're taking most of them.

Mother's Children - What'll Happen To All The Girls?
