Happy spring! We’ve got some tapes we’re looking to move. Through the end of the month, all cassette releases 1/2 off w/ checkout code FIDELIO.
TDH is proud to announce a cassette release of War War War‘s newest full-length, I Saw an Angel, I buried Its Body.
Multi-instrumentalist wunderkind Sam Boytari has spent the last several years composing his newest collection of immensely memorable songs. They combine haunting arrangements with imagist lyrics and rely on sweeping soundscapes that arrive and disappear at just the right time. Stand-alone, these tracks are like ships in bottles: they’re carefully constructed, nuanced models of larger, scarier worlds. Their composition seems deceptively simple until listeners begin to grapple with the myriad challenges that were necessary for their production. As a collection of songs, this record shows off its large-scale ambitions with impeccable production. Stream the whole thing via the WWW bandcamp page, check ’em out live, and pick up a tape if you’re so inclined. Available in two shell colors: opaque yellow and clear w/ red leaders.
Hey. Winter caught us off guard, but we’re officially back in action. From the creative force that brought you Teen Lust, check out Teaheads‘ new record, “If You’re June, I’m November.” The LP and cassettes are handled by other fine folks, but the CDs are available via the TDH store, and also via the Teaheads’ merch table during their July tour (dates below).
In other news, audio/video project Kriss Gaynes‘ new record, Monument River, is available as CD and digital download here and here, respectively. Check them out live in Flint on July 3rd as part of FREE CITY 2015, a public art exhibition being held at the Chevy Commons site.

Earlier this year we released Temple of Rats, a long-lost paean to punk that was only recently unearthed in a west London basement by the band’s vocalist, Nicotine Rick. Due to the unprecedented overseas praise of their re/released debut record–some 28 years after its initial pressing–Rick is back with the original Temple lineup to present Deep Ride, the band’s first record of new material in nearly three decades. A twelve track sonic assault that mixes equal parts thrash, crash, doom, and gloom, Rick says these new tracks are “for the scene, but mostly for Todd [St. Cloud]. None of this would have been possible had it not been for the support of Bad Manners back in ’86.” Dubbed in mono on clear shells with black foil inserts and full color jcard.
Bad news: Destruction Unit tapes are all gone on our end. Check them out live and see if you can get one at their table.
