V/A - We Must All Hang Together... CD

October 2006 · Ownlife Records · OWN-001

I put this together and released it when I was just getting out of high school (instead of homework) and I had no idea what I was doing. In fact, I used money I received at graduation to fund the thing. Sorry to all who involuntarily donated. Anyhow, I'm still mostly pleased with this compilation. It expresses what I love about music, friends and strangers alike getting together to make a collective expression of art. Many of these bands do not exist anymore making this yet another historical record of a time and place(s). I was also stoked about the artwork and layout put together by a partner in crime from school, Marshall Rake. Only $3, ya gotta be kidding me.

20trenched - Hagakure CD

July 2011 · Ownlife Records · OWN-003

Gritty but catchy midwest punk rock, counting Jawbreaker, Alkaline Trio, and The Lawrence Arms as influences.
