Over the past couple of years, Deerhoof has been asking themselves if there was any music they could create that expressed how the rapidly changing future might actually feel. The finished product, Future Teenage Cave Artists, finds Deerhoof in a revolutionary mood, but also haunted by memories of a lost world and every failed attempt to save it.
People already cut loose from the system, already surviving with new ways of life—these hopeful heroes are Deerhoof’s inspiration. These are the Future Teenage Cave Artists.
Available on VIP vinyl, Blood vinyl, CD, cassette, & digital.

Songwriters Sima Cunnningham and Macie Stewart formed their unbreakable bond performing throughout the fringes of Chicago's many interlocking communities, collaborating with titans from the city's indie rock, hip-hop, and improvised worlds. But together, along with drummer Matt Carroll, they've stretched the boundaries of what guitar music can do starting with the band's experimental 2016 self-titled EP and their adventurous debut 2018 LP Parts. Now their longstanding partnership culminates with the stunning and muscular follow-up Fantasize Your Ghost.
Available on VIP Tri-color Striped vinyl, Spectral Blue vinyl, CD, & digital.
Kidbug is a love story, one which emerged through a fateful connection when Netherlands-based Marina Tadic (Eerie Wanda) and Australian transplant Adam Harding (Dumb Numbers) met at Joyful Noise Recordings’ annual holiday gathering. After enlisting their friends Thor Harris (Swans), Bobb Bruno (Best Coast), and Dale Crover (Melvins), Kidbug emerges fully-formed to present their self-titled debut.
The VIP edition is limited to 350 hand-numbered copies, pressed to Neon Violet & Neon Magenta A-side / B-side Swirl vinyl, and includes bonus Flexi-Disc of an unreleased 'Acoustical' track. Also available on Loomer Pink Vinyl, CD, and Digital.
It's Spooky was originally released in 1989 on Jad Fair's label ("Fifty Skidillion Watts Records"), and reissued on CD by our friends at Jagjaguwar in 2001. We're honored for JNR to be a part of this album's history. Daniel Johnston was such a huge inspiration to us, and it feels really special to help canonize his classic collaboration with our brother Jad Fair.
This reissue is limited to a one-time pressing of 1500 copies on 2xLP "Casper White" vinyl. Includes bonus track, "Ashes on the Ground", + bonus flexi-disc of the unreleased Daniel Johnston classic "I Live My Broken Dreams”. Deluxe gatefold artwork features extensive liner notes from Everett True, Jeff Feuerzeig, Jad Fair, and Kramer.
We are purveyors of interesting 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 or pop. 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 a diverse roster of bands including: Kishi Bashi, WHY?, Sebadoh, Son Lux, Big Business, Joan Of Arc, Half Japanese, Surfer Blood, David Yow, and many others. We have also released a slew of limited specialty releases from bands like Melvins, Dinosaur Jr., of Montreal, Daniel Johnston, Deerhoof, etc.
We are based in the great city of Indianapolis, Indiana.
