Ritual Tapes is a cassette & record label based in Lafayette, LA.

No demos, please.

"do you own a tape label? do you sell cassettes or cassette equipment? do you live in Austin, TX or want to come down? apply to participate in Austin Cassette Fest! visit our website (www.austincassettefest.com) and send an email to austincassettefest@gmail.com”

You don’t have to live in Texas for this, I swear!  I’m driving 7 hours to participate, so if you can swing the trip please sign up to vend!  National Audio Company is acting as a sponsor for the event and is producing the fest sampler tape for FREE.  Every vendor gets to submit a song from one of their bands to put on the sampler and everyone who vends/attends will get a free copy. 

But this can only happen if we get enough labels involved, so pass this around and let everyone know what’s going on May 17th!

Healing Powers // dirt nappin’

Surely all this HP love is leading up to something.

healing powers - stop high-fiving my face
sometimes my heart is not a nice place to be. maybe you’re better off staying away. i think that my thoughts are beginning to merge. and they’re conspiring against me. this house isn’t home, so don’t leave me all alone. because i swear that my thoughts will swallow me whole.

I made this video a couple of months ago for my buddies in Healing Powers, who are really, really something else and if you haven’t heard them already then I strongly urge you to check them out at the link below.
