HHR001 First Base - Party, Party Party EP

In the process of making our releases available digitally I stumbled upon the masters of the first release we ever did - First Base's Party, Party, Party EP. It was the first time they ever recorded as a full band, and we were happy to have it as our flagship release.

It's been out of print forever, but for the next week it's going to be set as a free download on our Bandcamp page. Pick it up now before their LP comes out on HOZAC RECORDS next month and everyone becomes a screaming melting mess because of how good they are.

September 2013 Update - Pink Wine + La Ti Da + Ketamines

We're working hard to make this a fall to remember. Two new tapes are out now, a new 7" is out in October, and we're working on a really cool little project for late October that I can't talk about yet.

Pink Wine - Untitled tape

Toronto's premier snotty punk brats. Drink pink wine. Spit on the ground. Go Steady. Etc.

Listen here. 

La Ti Da Records - 2006-2012

It's no surprise to anyone that we both love La Ti Da and everything they do. Their dedication to Canadian music on 7"s in unmatched coast to coast. I was really excited when Tim and Dale asked if we'd be interested in releasing a compilation of their first 12 singles/6 years as a label on tape. 29 songs/well over an hour of garage punk. You're not going to get a better bang for your $5 than this one.

Listen here. 

Both of these are now available in the webstore.

Ketamines - So Hot! 7"

We're really happy to be doing single #3 in Ketamines' 4-part 7" series. To be mentioned in the same sentence as Mint, Pleasance and Leaning Trees is something of a pleasure for us.

This three song 7" features both the weirdest song Ketamines have recorded to date - self described by James from Ketamines as being heavily influenced by Wu Tang - and the first song James and Paul ever wrote together. Either way this 7" is bonkers, and it's Hosehead's first adventure into colour vinyl.
