The Gossip jailbreak That's not what I heard Kill Rock Stars Ok, the major reason I love Kill Rock Stars is because the first bands they released were Bikini Kill and Bratmobile. This heavy hitting indie label got its start with the riot grrl movement. Can it get any better than that?
Stereo Total Get Down Tonight Oh Ah Kill Rock Stars The label was started by Slim Moon and Kathleen Hannah originally as a way of releasing spoken word albums, but they soon went the way of the girl band (sweet) with albums from Sleater-Kinney, Bratmobile, Huggy Bear, Heavens to Betsy and Excuse 17.
Comet Gain Just One More Summer Before I Go City Fallen Leaves Kill Rock Stars
Cave Singers Seeds of the Night Invitation Songs Matador Matador was started in a NY apartment by Chris Lombardi in 1989, like so many great indie record labels. You would not believe the panoply of artists who have recorded with them. *
Times New Viking Relevant: Now Rip it Off Matador Liz Phair, Neko Case, Pavement, Helium, Interpol, Mecca Normal, Modest Mouse, Pretty Girls Make Graves, Sleater-Kinney, Spoon, and Superchunk call Matador home. *
Mr. Len Love Venom Pity the Fool Matador Though a large portion of Matador was bought by Capitol Records in '96, the founding memebers bought it back and returned it to its indie awesomeness and former glory.
Pacific UV 50s EP Warp Warp records, like Matador was founded in 1989. Though instead of an apartment in Brooklyn, this one was probably founded in a 'flat' in its home base of the UK. Cheerio. *
Prefuse 73 Girlfriend Boyfriend Preparations Warp The label was originally called 'warped records' which makes more sense with the very vinyl late 80s, but it's said that it was hard to hear over the phone so one of the members changed the name to Warp. *
Battles Tonto Tonto+ Warp Warp is famous for killer techno and house music. Here you are. *
