Side A - Os Mutantes - "Esos Ojos Verdes"
Side B - Yonatan Gat - "Porto Exílio"
When I was very young I was under the impression that music is only meant to be beautiful.
Two albums smashed that concept – The Velvet Underground & Nico and Os Mutantes.
The Velvet Underground & Nico taught me that many feelings can be used to create breathtaking music, not just expressions of beauty and harmony. Os Mutantes had a similar effect, but revealed you could also have a blast while you’re at it.
There’s the insanely loud, piercing guitar on “Bat Macumba”; the disorienting tape edits in “O Relógio”; that ice cream slurp on “Baby”; and other surreal sounds, effects, percussion and wild orchestrations scattered throughout the record—arguably most noticeable being Sérgio Dias’ completely unique guitar, sounding like a piece of paper lit by a match.
It was as if the album had invented its own set of rules, only to shatter them entirely one song later. Each track sounded like a different band (they sang in four languages), and it was ambitious, playful, adventurous, and overwhelming. It wasn’t just beautiful - it was all the beauty, irony, disgust, joy, sarcasm, naiveté and self-awareness of young people creating in an oppressing environment, ideas as relevant to 2018’s New York as they were to 1968 military dictatorship Brazil.
During a recent tour of that incredible country I went to a samba club in the Lapa neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro where I heard a fado (a traditional and passionate Portuguese sea ballad) performed by an extremely powerful samba singer. Her name was Magali. She sang it with intensity, and when she visited New York a year later I invited her to collaborate on the track in my attic studio. 
An inappropriate guitar can have the power to turn a traditional song into...something else. This song serves as a homage to a Brazilian composer that opened my world with his guitar – Sérgio Dias.

"Porto Exílio"
Written by Magali and Elisa Lucinda
Produced by Yonatan Gat

- Almost Live from Joyful Noise: Periodically we ask some of the best bands in the world to perform at our Indianapolis headquarters. This record series documents those performances on white 7" vinyl w/ unique screen-printed art on side B.
- Cause & Effect: Side A features a highly-influential artist, Side B features a new artist who has been influenced by the dude on Side A... Cause, and Effect. Pressed on split-color vinyl.


You'll have access to limited, hand-numbered vinyl editions of our releases. VIP editions are the most limited versions of our releases, pressed on specialty colored vinyl, often packed with bonus material, and only available to VIP Members.


As a VIP you'll have access to special website content hidden from the public. This includes our ongoing Private Stash (featuring a rotating selection of otherwise-sold-out releases), and access to our annual Test Pressing Week

10% off on all purchases

As a VIP you will receive advanced notifications of all new releases. We will email you (or text you if you prefer) 12-24 hours before any release is announced to the world. This advanced notice gives you first dibs on limited releases that often sell out soon after they are announced publicly.

Free Tickets to Shows in Your Area

Every time one of our bands tours, we offer a handful of tickets to our loyal VIP Members. Tickets are offered based on seniority - the longer you're a member, the more likely you are to get the free tickets.

Good Karma

By becoming a VIP you’ll be supporting our humble, independently run label; empowering us to continue to bring amazing music into the world. VIP funds go to pay for fundamental operating costs so the artists ultimately don't have to chip in for things like utilities, rent, packaging materials, etc. This gives us the freedom to treat our artists fairly, and release meaningful music with less of an eye on financial viability. Your VIP Membership allows us to focus on quality of art over commerce, and we thank you!


This is the ultra-limited, wild and crazy shit that no one's even thought up yet. They will be small-run super creative release that we'll be cooking up with our pals at PEOPLE IN A POSITION TO KNOW. Ever heard of a six-sided record? Yeah, that's what we're talking about!


VIPs receive cheap, flat-rate shipping on all orders to North America, United Kingdom, or Europe! Price for an LP currently averages $4 for US and $10 for UK/EU. 

NOTICE: by signing up for VIP Membership you are accepting our Terms & Conditions, in which you agree to refrain from any dickish behavior like reselling limited releases at exorbitant prices. DO NOT sign up if your intention is to flip records.
