Hi My Name Is Ryan is going on tour... kinda
Back in December I requested the first two weeks of May off from my day job so Hi My Name Is Ryan could go on a little West Coast tour. Obviously that’s not happening now, so I am experimenting with a digital live-stream European tour with my friends from all over the world* Each show will start at 8pm CET (Central European Time) that is about 11AM on the west coast of the US and a few hours later if you’re in a different part of the US. This is also maybe an hour later if you are somewhere else in Europe. Time Zones are confusing so I’ll leave it up to you to figure it out for yourself.

Today is Bandcamp Day!
On March 20, 2020, Bandcamp waived their revenue share in order to help artists and labels impacted by the pandemic. The Bandcamp community showed up in a massive way, spending $4.3 million on music and merch—15x the amount of a normal Friday— helping artists cover rents, mortgages, groceries, medications, and so much more. It was truly inspiring.
But the pandemic and its impact on the music community aren’t over, so today, as well as on June 5, and July 3 (the first Friday of each month), Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share for all sales on the platform, from midnight to midnight PDT on each day.

Finally finished the first (of hopefully many) digital compilations that pay tribute to a specific region and decade. The songs that are covered and re-imagined on here are really cool and (like every other compilation we put out) includes a wide variety of genres. Artwork by Later Operator.
New release for a new band! TAURUS DADDIES is a collaboration made up of two of my favorite people. AAGGAA (aka Treasure Mammal) and ALHHLA (aka my boi andy from the wizards of time/Yairms and producer of multiple Drunk & Horny albums). This album is being released on a limited edition CDR like its 2004. Limited run of 50. Album release is November 27th with Emotron, Non Grata and another new AZ weirdo project Dem Cauldronz at Cardiff Giant Tattoo

A bunch of new releases are coming out in the next few months but instead of about plugging all of that I wanted to share all the new awesome music videos that have come out so far this year.
The first two are from Treasure Mammals new album "I Will Cut You With My EBT Card"
Treasure Mammal "Missed Connections (Featuring Lonna Kelley)"
Treasure Mammal "Cassette (Featuring R. Stevie Moore)"
And just yesterday WhatYouth.com premiered a new video for Mia Loucks "Girls" from "The Sister Honey Demos"
We are also pleased to announce the next 2 releases are going to be from an artist we have admired for such a long time....
