Bummer CD
SHG 38


Saw Her Ghost Records is thrilled to welcome Rocky Top shoegaze brooders, Lacing. Their album Bummer is a sweeping, swirling series of waves- complete with dark hooks and trembling discordance. Ethereal, floating vocals compliment icy clean guitar lines that shift to fuzzy distortion. Their path ultimately descends into riffs the size of gritty, mammoth castle walls. At once, delicate, and in due time after, a unique heaviness shrouds all that was built before it. Blue, moody, uneasy, yet simultaneously comforting and redemptive- Let Bummer transport you to another emotional dimension, or it may just burrow down and bury you where you lie.

Gloom Pride CD
SHG 36


Flint, Michigan’s SWEAT doesn’t merely hint at residing in the shadows of the human experience, the band immerses the listener in every shade of darkness, seen and unseen. Jagged, towering riffs form the framework that is blanketed in gorgeous, haunting melodies. Infinite layers of twisting and swerving waves articulately emote uniquely complex stories. Pounding and trance-like guitar rhythms give way to frantic and almost unhinged bursts of raw and visceral screams, both literal and figurative. From open wounds to layered scars, Gloom Pride transforms an array of colors to black, and back again.

Sun Myth
A.M. Sky CD
SHG 35


Having played together in one form or another for almost 30 years, Sun Myth draws from late 1960’s to mid 1970’s progressive, improvisational and psychedelic bands like Peter Green, Can, and Steamhammer, and jazz influences like Coltrane and Miles. Armed with electric guitars, bass, and drums, the guys create some pretty intense rhythms, while paving a path for King Crimson-esque solos. Forgoing vocals, Sun Myth let the music do the talking as well as the walking. Their debut CD, A.M. Sky, features nearly 80 minutes of mind melting/time warping sonic adventures.

Beast In The Field
The Astral Path
To Satan’s Throne
SHG 33


Finally, a live album that sounds great! Beast In The Field recorded ‘Astral Path…’ live in studio at WIDR in Kalamazoo, Michigan. We had no idea it would turn into this, a fantastic sounding live show, accompanied by an exquisite 12 page comic about the adventures of the Beast. The CD and comic come in a DVD case so we could make the comic that much bigger. It was illustrated by Decibel Magazine/Metal Hammer illustrator Mark Rudolph, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. If you’ve never seen Beast live, this might be the closest you’ll get to the electricity of seeing them in person.

Touch Of North America
Touch Of North America CD
SHG 29


Detroit’s TOUCH OF NORTH AMERICA brings the rock/punk/hardcore, ’90’s style. This trio features members of other Motor City stalwarts No Man and The Summer Pledge. They take the blueprint of their other bands, chop it in three and hit the gas. Fast and screamy bursts prevail, but not without a thick undercurrent of fantastic songwriting. The self titled debut CD is full of gritty and gnarly hooks with a razor’s edge. Any fan of Husker Du, Nirvana, The Men, and The Melvins will see the intensity and genius of this recording.

Nurse Ratched
Nurse Ratched CD
SHG 28


Like the ex-Mayor of their hometown, Motown, Nurse Ratched poisons the well with as much grime and disgust as they can. Absurd, violent, fantastical, and sometimes socially aware lyrics make way for a grind/riff/grime sound that’ll turn your head, turn your stomach, and get you groovin’ in about a 60 second span. Imagine if Carcass went fishing, caught some Sex Pistols, and gutted them over a pile of blood soaked National Inquirer magazines, with Watain blaring on the garage stereo.

Lost Coves
Bookends CDEP
SHG 27


Brooklyn’s Lost Coves explore the unexplored even further on their second offering. Picking up where they left off with their debut, the duo spaces out even further, but not without beefing up the rhythm and booze- stoner rock for the stoned astronaut! The recording is incredible, and LC deliver the goods with 3 new tracks that clock in at around 20 minutes.

1. Bookends (7:32)
2. When You Say It Like That (7:12)
3. Heading North (4:09)

Beast In The Field
Lucifer, Bearer Of Light CD
SHG 26


Beast In The Field’s follow up album to World Ending is even more evil and filthy than anyone could imagine. 5 tracks clock in at 40 minutes to deliver a completely disgusting and disturbing collection of stoner grit and terror.

Detroit Rock City is alive and well with the sophomore release from Mean Mother. Equal parts stoner and biker rock, the fearsome foursome embark on a rip-roaring riff-athon of epic rock proportions. Those who like their jams raunchy, sleazy, and heavy as fuck will devour this nine song juggernaut. For fans of bikes, beer, and broads- chase your booze with motor oil and rock the fuck out! Not for the weak.

Lost Coves
Lost Coves CDEP

SHG 24


Lost Coves comes to us from Brooklyn, New York. Not the typical SHG fare, we welcome the bass and drums duo with open arms. While LC are certainly heavy, they rock in a much more psychedelic and unpredictable way. Easily fitting in on the Touch & Go roster of the late ’90’s, or opening for Mogwai or Sunny Day, the guys take the road less traveled and are better for it. Features Bil from The Nain Rouge!

1. Orig (2:55)
2. Red Mascara (4:00)
3. Deadweight (3:52)
4. Iceburg/Firebird (5:07)

Beast In The Field
World Ending CD

SHG 23


Beast In The Field’s World Ending sounds like just that- your world violently crashing down in a hellacious storm of apocalyptic measures. Seven tracks clock in at 66 minutes and 60 seconds of gritty, sprawling stoner doom. These subterranean anthems crawl, creep, pound and groove relentlessly. One part psychedelia, one part rock, World Ending is all parts evil and crushing. Nostradamus never told us that the apocalypse would be recorded live to two-inch tape. This is the masterpiece you’ve been living to die for.

2. Beast In The Field (13:07)
3. Sermon Of The Black Order (3:09)

Hellas Mounds
New Heaven New Earth CDEP

SHG 21


Phoenix, Arizona’s Hellas Mounds returns in stealth, subtle, and dark fashion. This revamped 6-piece ensemble has melted down the chunky riffs from their last offering into a mysterious and liquid sound that is equal parts psychedelic and personal. The Eagles wrote about a ‘dark desert highway’, but never dared to venture this far into their own psyche. Overflowing with character, these shadowed stories of sound shine a dim yet telling light on the darkened corners of your imagination. You could cut the tension with a knife- a very sharp knife.

1. Passage I (0:53)
2. Movement I (4:19)
3. Movement II (10:02)
4. Passage II (1:50)
5. Movement III (12:10)

3. Party Time!! (0:37)
4. All Equal (2:08)

The Nain Rouge
The Self Defeatist CD

SHG 19


Detroit’s murderous foursome called it quits on Halloween of 2008 but THE NAIN ROUGE recorded their swan song album and are finally ready to uncage the beast. Unanimously their finest and most accomplished work to date, TNR have created a truly heavy masterpiece. Being of the most cruel and bastardized concoction of Botch-like mathematics, Mastodon-esque riffage, and Isis-ish atmospherics, it’s almost a shame to name drop as these dudes indeed breathed their own clear air into a stuffy genre and authored a sound both indescribable and original. They will be missed, but you can enjoy their last and best work yet! CD digi-wallet is hand screened with art by Tim from TNR. Mastered by Scott Hull to ensure complete devastation!

Beast In The Field
Lechuguilla CD

SHG 18

2. Mira El Sol (2:20)
3. Dry, Dead End Passages (6:34)
4. Lake Of Blue Giants (3:58)

Vaalbara CD

SHG 17


Ann Arbor, Michigan’s ambient doom super-group features ex-members of The Black Dahlia Murder, but one should expect the likes of Isis, Baroness, and Crowbar.

1. Nebula (3:06)
2. Earthrise (7:31)
3. Lakes Of Iron (10:40)

Consisting of 6 tracks/ 28 minutes of instrumental riffage of the gnarliest brand, this trio checked the vocals at the door- and all for the better!

The Nain Rouge
Whatever Helps You Sleep At Night CDEP

SHG 07


Resurrecting and perfecting a sound that came and went with bands like Botch, Coalesce, and Deadguy, combined with the technicality and heaviness of early Mastodon, the atmospherics of Isis, and the grittiness that comes from living and playing in Detroit, the Nain Rouge are the very definition of heavy music.

1. Napoleon Complex (2:31)
2. Epiphany (3:03)
3. Zeitgeist (2:50)
4. Tire Tracks In Reverse (3:57)
5. Target Malpractice (3:35)

Indrid CDEP

SHG 06


Running the gamut of rhythms and influences, this totally unclassifiable Michigan quintet is difficult to pin down but easy to embrace.
