OUT NOW: WHY? Alopecia - 10th anniversary reissue!
When it dropped in 2008, Alopecia not only marked WHY?'s evolution from a sonically collaged mostly solo project to a live-recorded powerhouse band of badass multi-instrumentalists, it also minted a genre of one: wryly written, poignantly posed, simultaneously swaggering and heart-rending song-rap that jangles like folk, bursts like psych-rock, and sways like chamber pop. To this day, there is no other group that sounds or feels like WHY? does on Alopecia.The limited edition vinyl is pressed on cloud color vinyl; 'bonus 7" on red vinyl, featuring remixes by Boards of Canada and Dntel.
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.
