If you’re heavy into experimental electronic tunes, you’re probably already familiar with Chicago-based indie label Kranky Records, who since 1993 have been showcasing artists that blend ambient, psychedelic, experimental electronica with traditional rock and roll. Their impressive line-up/family includes the likes of Deerhunter/Atlas Sound, Tim Hecker, Benoit Pioulard, and a slew of other weirdos who make the making of strange sounds their business. They’re a heavy-hitter of independent labels to be sure, and over at their Soundcloud site they’ve posted a tasty little smorgasbord of recordings to whet your palate. Listen to a track from Belong above, they have an album coming out on Kranky entitled Common Era on March 21st, keep an eye on their Soundcloud for more tracks and watch their website for pre-order info.
