This week I fell pretty hard into this London based punk label and distro called La Vida Es Un Mus. They have most of their releases on Bandcamp and there is some awesome stuff on there. https://lavidaesunmus.bandcamp.com/
What I really like about this label is that they put out some releases from bands from all over the world and go out of their way to promote artists from underrepresented backgrounds. The band bios on their bandcamp are also well written and informative. Here are some of my favorites after a week of obsessively listening to as many records as I could.
Sial - a band form Singapore that sings in the language of Singapore’s indigenous minority
Rixe - a contemporary French Oi! band where every song is an anthem
Haram - a band from New York that sings entirely in Arabic
Exotica - also from New York with members form Mexico and Argentina
They also put out the latest album from Limp Wrist! Did anyone else know that Limp Wrist put out a new record this year? Cuz I certainly missed it. It’s very good and has a house track at the end.
I also started reading the Bandcamp Daily articles, they are really good and totally worth a read. Like this article on Southeast Asian screamo or this one about The Women of Latin American Electronic Music. Bandcamp is really getting to be fucking rad nowadays and I’m going to start paying more attention to it than the other subscription based streaming stuff that’s available.
