List of PDX Record Labels with Links

Here is a list of Portland, Oregon record labels. I'm sure this IS NOT nor will it ever be a complete list considering how many kids (and grown ass men and women) are sitting in front of their computer right now and putting themselves on their own label.

If there are any you want to add to the list please leave a comment WITH A LINK and I will update the list as we go along...

PS Also Failing Records. Granted they are more of a comp-related entity than a label in the classic sense, but I think they deserve a mention.


Goldie Davich said...

I worked on this list for a while and have several versions -- and I swear I put Failing on there... Audio dreg was on the first list and some how... well. Please keep them coming. I will update soon.

Goldie Davich said...

and it really wasn't who deserves to be on the list... this is harder than it looks! At least for me!

It is hard! So mad props for coming up with something so definitive Goldie. Truly a job well done. I don't think anyone has gone to the trouble of doing this before. Not that I've seen anyway.

PS I think it's hilarious I missed Lucky Madison too!? Being as I started it and all.

PPS My personal favorite contenders for best PDX labels of 2010 that are gonna blow up bigger than anyone ever realized....

1) Tender Loving Empire
2) Gnar Tapes & Shit
3) Dirty Dirty Street
4) Dismal City
5) One that doesn't exist on this list yet

I don't know which is more impressive - the actual list or the fact that you put one together. I haven't been able to find anything like this that wasn't compiled almost 10 years ago. Very, very cool.

Karen said...

How about Visceral Impulse Media? They are A Cautionary Tale's label...

beerdeprived said...

Uh...Magic Marker? They have only been around 11 years.

Goldie Davich said...

RobertWagner - Thank you for the love. This list was complied with the help of the readers. It was created because I COULDN'T FIND A LIST :-)

there are some tape labels that are not there - eggy & uhu + field hymns is spelled wrong, and ARRCO has the wrong url - but besides that AWESOME

Hey Goldie, Jesse of World's Greatest Ghosts nominated the following via my FB page. Copy/paste message from him...

STANKHOUSE RECORDS - awesome peeps and close friends of mine.. home to Thee Oh Sees, Hornet Leg, Here Comes A Big Black Cloud!!, Long Legged Woman, and more.


HOVERCRAFT RECORDS - Hey Lover, The Bugs, more


BOY GORILLA RECORDS - still going, albeit on a rest-bit.. birthed bands such as Typhoon, Eskimo and Sons, Ghosties, many more


BANGBACK RECORDS - Double Dutch, Nick Jaina


OREGAN RECORDS - El Come Home, Ghosties, Natural Bridges, Breakfast Mountain

Also we really should correct the Arena Rock link. I'd do it myself but can't log in to edit your post.


Goldie Davich said...

I will add you as an administrator. I am ready for people to edit my work. I wasn't yesterday but now I know I want it.

Dr. Something said...

I might be interested in taking the resulting list and creating a database of labels and their rosters, but I probably won't have time for such a project until about April.
