SOLD OUT.

 

haha 34 – Patriots/Palberta – Special Worship CS

No wavers, rock’n’rollers, etc. doing their thang. Keepin’ alive 100 of these minus a couple that exploded in the deck. New edition of 100 on red tapes

haha 33 – Greg Hartunian – Berlin Demos CS

You are what you eat, gloom arrangements, demos, but special, rareeeee, we made about 30.

haha 32 – G. Jamie/C. Nathan – Youthful Dementia CS

Recorded while dog sitting down by the beach in biddeford pool.  dedicated to bleu. really funny! quite sad! collaboratory. 50-ish made originally, now re-issued with FEEDING TUBE RECORDS with pro-dub tapes and handsewn insert including lyrics/info. issue of 200.

haha 31 – Saralee – S/T reissue CS

Cassette reissue of the first release from “Boston” popsters Saralee. Zach recorded this bad boy in the basement of problemhouse, now that sucker moved out to Los Angeles and greases his hair with store brand vaseline. I’m just making that up, no idea what he’s doin’ over there. Sara is in Isreal or something, but she’ll be back soon. Lee is still in Boston. This is all besides the point, this cassette is your lo-fi wetdream. Short songs on gtr and drum and Sara hollering at it, or from within it all. Back in winter of 2011, I was working an office job in Portland, scanning medical documents into a computer, and most Fridays, I would drive straight from work down to Boston, and I’d listen to this sucker every time.

SOLD OUT.

 

haha 29 – Colby Nathan – Don’t Pout, it’s just another puzzle CS
 
Limited tour cassette from my first “comedy” tour.  Recorded at Fellowship Hall by Jeremy Finch for a 4-track Tascam.  We were able to dub 12 copies.  Kyle gave me great deals on materials and Andrew sang on a couple tunes, but mostly painted during the sessions. It was a magical time.
SOLD OUT.

 
 
 
 

haha 28 – (NE) Patriots – braap braaap brap CS

We made 50 copies of a tour version of this for our January tour with Fat History Month.  More official release coming soon, I guess.  SOLD OUT.

 



haha 27 -elephant/slums – Chainsaw Son and Luscious Skin CS
Amazing landscapes of tape distortion and nuanced effects glaze over intricately constructed pop/folk songs by Greg Hartunian (elephant) and Davis LeDuke (slums).  
 
I think Greg actually managed to make a 100 of there and they’re gone.  SOLD OUT.
 
 
 
haha 26 – dark rodeo – hunks CS
 
Obsessively honest and undeniably dark music from Mark Bodio and Alex Hamrick.   Recorded in the basement of our Allston apartment.  I think we managed to hobble together 40 of these. SOLD OUT.
 
 
haha 25 – (NE) Patriots – Boston Strangler CS
 
Patriots first demo tape.  We made 16 of these, even though they’re numbered out of 20.  I recorded it on a 4-track Tascam, but we were really loud and they sound like shit.  SOLD OUT.

haha 24 – Timothy Cushing – Hunting Songs digital (CS/CD coming soon)
 
Timothy Cushing’s lost album, buried under three or so years of procrastination (mine, not his), but still has not lost it’s shine.  Folk songs with lush arrangements and Tim’s thought provoking poetry holding it all together. Available as a digital album on Tim’s website – http://huntingsongs.timothycushing.com

haha 23 – BIG MUFF – Fishstick Summer/Dream 2 Life plexi 7″ 
 
I don’t know what BIG MUFF is doing or how he gets any of these releases together.  I thought I saw him in a huge cloud of smoke one time, but it was only a pigeon wrestling with a plastic bag.  
 
I believe there were 25 of these suckah’s and they’re totally gone.  SOLD OUT.
 
 
haha 22 – BIG MUFF – Soul’d Out/Hot Picks/Earth Tones – BLURAY CD-R

haha 21 – Molasses – S/T CS
 
Bedroom meanderings from Kassie Carlson.  Some beautiful folk inspired songs and some soundscapes developed out of violin and noise loops.  I think probably about 30 of these were made and distributed while Kassie was out on tour with Guerilla Toss.  SOLD OUT.
 
haha 20 – Hyena/Elephant/Follies – winter demos CS
 
A reissue of Hyena’s “winter demo” on cassette with a full side of new demos from Elephant and Follies. SOLD OUT.

haha 19 – Hyena – gehuegen CS

haha 18 – Follies – Sway CD-R
 
Phil Hartunian’s songwriting and arrangements are meticulous without sacrificing intimacy on this CD-R release.  Jeeze, Greg made a bunch of these.  I think we still have some cases, so if you want one, don’t be bashful.    
 
 

 
haha 17 – Colby Nathan – A poem for Ingrid Strange CS
 
Songs of self-loathing and obsession with a fictional woman.  Recorded in autumn.  made about 50 of these. LONG GONE.

dang, we probably made like 100 or more of these. GONE!
 

 
haha 15 – BIG MUFF – Hurts 2 Exist flexi single
 

Oh, BIG MUFF did this on his own.  Low quality presentation of an overlooked pop masterpiece.  ‘Hurts 2 Exist’ says it all.  Amazing lyric sheet included.  There were 25 of these, they’re gone… or maaaaybe… ;-P 

haha 13 – R. Stevie Moore – Ariel Pink’s Picks CS
 
Ariel Pink provides insight to R. Stevie Moore’s prolific output of pop hit after pop hit.  Bookended with two collaborative tunes by Stevie and Ariel.  BIG MUFF did a lotta leg work on this bad boy, and Joslyn Crocco did the artwork. Limited 100 copies.
SOLD OUT.

Compilation of incredible elephant demos.  SOLD OUT.
 

 

haha 8 – Fallen Comrades – S/T CD-R
Dylan, Luke, and Alex’s old punk band.  Got together in my barn the summer that Laughable Recordings was conceived and recorded these ol’ middle/high school numbers.  Probably sounds worse than the original demos done in Dylan’s basement when these guys were all 13 or something.  We made like 50 of these, have a bunch more copies of the art, if anybody’s lookin’ for a copy, it could be managed. SOLD OUT.

haha 0 – In the Distance: A Light! – I may never meet Arthur Mann CD-R
 
Pre-Hyena recordings.  Honestly, I was searching, but I didn’t know how to do! I still have some of these, haha.  They’re even shrink-wrapped! WHAT WAS I THINKING?!
