Do you have a favourite record label?


#41

Border Community


#42

Probably Chemikal Underground. I haven’t paid too much attention to them in the last few years, which is kinda disgraceful of me but almost from their inception I pretty much bought and loved everything they released.

Edit…not sure why I replied specifically to you beastie…whoops


#43

That one’s actually a bit after my time!


#44

Big fan of Rocket Recordings. Some ace labels doing noisey rock/psych stuff in the UK at the moment - Hominid Sounds, Riot Season, Box Records etc.


#45

When I was younger it labels meant not and I’d consume whatever on them…
Ipecac
Hydrangeas
Dischord
Three one g
Southern lord etc.

Nowadays not so much. Quantum Natives I guess and profound lore are generally good though.


#46

Ones that have already been mentioned (Hydrahead, Sub-pop, Constellation, Creation, 4AD, Temporary Residence)

I also enjoyed most things Leeds label Brew Records came out with. Their roster included bands such as Humanfly, Blacklisters, I Concur, Chickenhawk/Hawk Eyes, These Monsters, Kong, Nine Black Alps. Good stuff.


#47

It could be Merge
NMH, Magnetic Fields, Superchunk, Mountain Goats, Conor Oberst. Ooft.


#48

Killrockstars and Dischord too obv


#49

Yeah definitely Sacred Bones - for both the music and the artwork


#50

Should have reread my post before posting. It’s that bloody swiping phone keyboard thing.


#51

Some important ones for me over the years.

SubPop
Merge
Jade Tree
Frenchkiss
Warp
Dischord
Amphetamine Reptile
Touch&Go


#52

InterGraded


#53

These days:

Rocket Recordings
Erased Tapes
Phantasy
Memphis Industries

And obviously things like Bella Union and Domino and that.


#54

I wouldn’t call Sacred Bones a definite favourite…but I like how you just know something’s going to be a bit weird if it’s on that label.


#55


#56

Constellation, Kranky, Matador and Sacred Bones here.

Love this new label from Ireland as well, Penske Recordings. Limited release schedule but everything has been great so far.


#57

Profound Lore
Sacred Bones
Holy Roar
The Flenser
Type Records
Warp
Ninja Tune
Aurora Borealis (I basically buy everything they put out)
Sub pop
Blackest Ever Black


#58

Another vote for Holy Roar

also Big Scary Monster for emo and twiddly mathy rock

and then Exit for lovely warm minimal drum n bass


#59

I love Velocity Girl that used to be on Sub Pop. This is a stunning song. Reminds me of revising for my A’Levels back in 1994.


#60

Yeah, I do love their artwork and sleeve layouts, nice uniform to it all. Plenty of releases on their that I don’t really care for but I do love the likes of Destruction Unit and Marissa Nadler and always check out what’s new.
