Joyful Noise Recordings
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. 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, Sebadoh, Surfer Blood, Half Japanese, Reptar, Joan Of Arc, Yonatan Gat, Sleeping Bag, 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, where we operate a tiny record store and venue.
