Megaupload Shut Down

It seems as though Megaupload has been shut down due to a pending lawsuit. Read the story here. And wouldn't you know it, it just happens to be the hosting site that the majority of Sister Hell's downloads were uploaded to. Aside from some of my more recent posts that have been uploaded to Mediafire, most all of the past download links are now inactive. I don't plan on re-uploading all of these past links but if someone just HAS to have something I may consider it with enough persistent convincing. The majority of my posts are records that are now out of print. As for the occasional ones that are still in print I recommend making a trip to your local record store and buying a copy of any album written about here. That was always the intent of this blog from the very beginning. As for future downloads I plan to use another hosting site.

Long Legged Woman - Nobody Knows This Is Nowhere (2009)

This for those of you who like a little noise in your garage rock. For fans of "The Hospitals" and "The Lamps." This was the now defunct band's only LP with a pressing of 300 copies.

Lords Of Falconry - Lords Of Falconry (2011)

Lords Of Falconry is a duo from Portland consisting of Steven Wray Lodbell (Davis Redford Triad, Sufi Mind Game, Faust) on guitar and Sammy James (Fireballs Of Freedom) on drums. It's probably the most straight forward rock band that Lodbell's ever been involved with. Here's a description I'm stealing from the label's website...

Lords of Falconry are a rock group with a spectacular psychedelic edge. Songs blast green, inferno-like hard rock, funneling clouds and stripping away sludge, turning it into the waltz-like sound of mastodons stomping across the tundra. Classic heavy psych is alive in tracks that interweave soft voices and loud guitars that continuously pummel and enchant at every turn like a seven-headed cobra. C.S. Lewis had better watch his step!
If psychedelia is quixotically naive, then Lords of Falconry is its 21st-century doppelganger or spectral double wise to the ways of the fallen world. In an era of organized play dates and close parental supervision, there are already enough people ready to cooperate. Lords of Falconry offers what is missing--real rock music.
Formed in a quest to find the lost note, Lords of Falconry examines the intersection of a mystical crossroads between the fourth dimension and their own 3-D universe.

Hepa/Titus - The Giving Brain Vol. 1 & 2 (2011)

So I finally got to see Kevin Rutmanis' (Cows, Melvins, Tomahawk) new band Hepa/Titus play last night. It was more or less what I expected. Kind of weird like Kevin himself but it was an entertaining show. Unlike his previous bands, Hepa/Titus really is Kevin's band with him singing and his bass taking on more of a lead role much like a guitar. Volume 1 is more experimental with each song being exactly 20 minutes long and
is a cassette only release with a pressing of 72 copies. Volume 2 is a rock record more in line with what they performed live and is a 12" vinyl release with a pressing of 200 copies.
