Hill Billy Stew Records is calling it a day. The San Diego, California based label announced:

Hill Billy Stew will be shutting the doors in August. Thanks to everyone who supported us over the last 6 years. It was a fun ride. Lots of reasons for closing, the biggest is because I have other projects that have become more important to me and I can no longer give the label (bands on the label) the time and energy they deserve.

Look for the label to offer some big discounts on their catalog to clear the inventory. You can find details at their website. Hill Billy Stew released records from bands like Sk8 Or Die, Uphollow, Saw Wheel, Ghost Mice, Operation Cliff Clavin, and Autumn Picture among others.
