Hydra Health: Help Keep Hydra Head Records Alive!

As you know by now, back in September Hydra Head Records would be closing its doors. I was deeply saddened that my favorite label was going under because of the state the music industry is in.

Introducing Hydra Health; a Hydra Head rehabilitation project. According to the post the label will still not be able to release new records BUT they will still be able to preserve their catalog with your help! The label is offering a slew of special purchasable items (with more on the way) in order to raise money for their upcoming represses. Here is the official statement:

CONVERGE/CAVE IN Collaboration To Begin Mixing New Material

Back in June, Converge drummer Ben Koller announced on Facebook his involvement in a new project with Cave In guitarist/vocalist Stephen Brodsky. In a recent interview with Stephen via The Alt Review, it was announced that the new project was entering the mixing stages. The currently untitled project has seven tracks in its repertoire to be unleashed upon the world. This is what Stephen had to say:

Ben and I have Andrew Schneider onboard this month to mix 7 songs that we recorded ourselves last summer. We’re stoked to put this twisted mutant noise into the world soon… however, we still need a good name! Any suggestions?

I know you all are as anxious as I am to hear what this project will sound like. Looks like we will have to wait a bit longer…

Stephen Brodsky (Cave In) has a brand new five song solo EP entitled Hit or Mystery due out later this year on Little Black Cloud Records. The outing was mixed by James Plotkin (Khanate) and will be released digitally and as a 12″ LP. The EP will feature 4 brand new songs and a Lee Hazelwood cover. If you have never heard Stephen’s solo stuff before then you are in for a real treat. His music spans the gamut of acoustic folk, ambient soundscapes, space rock and others that sound drastically different than Cave In. Check out one of his tracks below.
