Who love K recs as much as I do?
Reasons to love K:
They're one of the few DIY labels from the 80s who haven't compromised their ethics in any way and are still releasing amazingly varied kick ass music.
They invented ladyfest, and ladyfest is amazing.
They still sell their awesome hand sewn felt tees.
They discovered Phil Elverum and gave the world a million amazing microphones/mount eerie songs.
They were founded by Calvin Johnson. And Calvin Johnson is the dude. Seriously, who doesn't love Beat Happening?
They my favourite pop album of last year, in the shape of the Blow's Paper Television.
Little Wings, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, Yum Bitsu, Karl Blau, Kimya Dawson, Mirah, Tender Trap, Old Time Relijun… What’s not to love?
