I know it's kind of a dying practice to follow a label, as now everything goes straight to the internets, but dammit, some labels release music of higher quality.
The two I consistently follow are Touch and Go and Jagjaguwar. Et Tu?
Desoto was consistantly good I thought, until all of the bands broke up.
I used to like Creation and 4AD the most. I also like (or used to like) moonshine, matador, v2, hooj, Sarah. and im sure a ton more I can't remember.
She added the phrase "meany head" to my profile.I hardly think I'm an attention whore.I train birds of prey and am I licensed falconer
My favorite defunct label is Guidance Recordings. So good! Such a shame they closed up shop.
I also really like:
For your health
Rawkus Records used to be my favorite, ahh the good ol days.......
Cup of Tea Records (RIP)

Matador...their albums are readily available on vinyl for $10.99 or less.
Arts & Crafts
Merge (seems to be a good place for bands to take off from)

The only two labels that I really pay any mind to anymore are both based out of Michigan: Ghostly International & Cass Records
I used to love SST and Sire.
I have it in my head that the first Smiths album released stateside was on Sire, but I can't find evidence of that? But I know that The Cure, DM, The Talking Heads and The Pretenders were all on Sire ( I guess Madonna was too....)
syd, where do you ACTUALLY live? if you don't mind saying.
tell you what label i dont like, i dont like that the best foods mayonnaise label says "Hellman's" on the east coast and "Best Foods" on the west coast. that just pisses me off.
