About JNR

At Joyful Noise, we are purveyors of interesting physical media for a variety of artistically-honest, exploratory & often haphazard musicians. We're not your standard noise or experimental label; nor are we interested in typical indie rock. We do however love when these two sides of the spectrum intersect in interesting ways. And we gravitate towards artists who, in one way or another, bridge this gap between pop and noise. 

Since our first release in 2003, the label has grown to include a roster of over 20 diverse bands including: of Montreal, Dinosaur Jr, Kishi Bashi, Memory Map, Deerhoof, Joan Of Arc, Jad Fair, Sleeping Bag, Child Bite and many others. We largely focus on the limited edition "boutique" side of things, releasing music on a myriad of physical formats including vinyl, cassettes, flexi discs, box sets, 8 Tracks, wax cylinders, and boring ol' CDs. It's our goal to foster incredible music using unique and highly-tactile physical media.
