Kanine Records Past Present Future (Love Record Stores Edition)

    Love Record Stores Edition available from 9am on Saturday June 20th.
    Limited to one per person.

    We spent the last year working on this promotion and planning it with a local Brooklyn artist named Kelly Jelly. He has become a bit of a cult artist around Brooklyn for his FLOWER designs. Some of his work has been used in indie films, wrapping paper and clothing companies, and sold in various art shows for over $150,000 a piece. And he does them all out of his tiny studio in Brooklyn.

    When we first caught glimpse of his Flower paintings it grabbed our attention instantly as we wanted a design that captured the indie vibe from the late 80’s / early 90’s C86 indie pop / twee pop days. When indie was truly indie. And Indie Labels captured that sound perfectly. Sarah Records, Teenbeat, and Postcard Records are a huge inspiration to Kay and I, so when starting this project we wanted to try and emulate that aesthetic with the packaging design. Kanine Records has always had a strong love of that early 90’s sound, and you can still hear that long lost era of indie in each of Tallie’s songs that bring strong comparisons to The Sundays and The Smiths.

    Although Kanine Records might have a range of sound throughout its history 2003-present, one thing stands the same. Our artists all started as independent musicians and their sound from the records that we released has reflected that spirit. When listening to this compilation you will hear the beginning days of Grizzly Bear’s dreamy lo-fi pop, the hazy shoegaze pop of The Deprecation Guild, the quickness of Garden Centre’s mind twisting art pop, the sunshine indie pop of Honey Cutt, the swirling guitars of Honey Lung’s love of The Smashing Pumpkins ‘Gish era’, along with a modern take on the RIOT Girl sound via Weeping Icon. Each of these twelve bands on the compilation has created their own little sound in their own scene and universe, but what combines them all together is their love of music with putting out records with a strong independent spirit.

    These super limited edition Vinyls DO NOT have a download code, as we want them to be enjoyed on your turntables in your record store, at home, or in your office. This vinyl compilation is an one time pressing of only 1,000 copies. This is a special GIFT from Kanine Records to all of you for supporting our releases throughout all of these years. We truly would not be here if it wasn’t for all of your love in INDEPENDENT ARTISTS and LABELS. So Thank You and please enjoy this vinyl treat.

    Tons of Love,

    Lio and Kay (Kanine Records). 

    Grizzly Bear

    Horn Of Plenty (Reissue)

      The debut album from Grizzly Bear will be repressed on cloudy clear vinyl for its 15 year anniversary.

      Before they were sound tracking Super Bowl ads, headlining festivals, making TV appearances and opening for Radiohead, Ed Droste started Grizzly Bear as a pet project meant only for friends. 15 years ago, Horn of Plenty was created in his Brooklyn apartment and after hooking up with multi-instrumentalist Chris Bear, Horn of Plenty was released by the new, upstart Brooklyn label Kanine Records in 2004. One year later, Horn of Plenty was rereleased with a bonus remix album, which will be included in the download card of this release. The rest of Grizzly Bear’s rise is history.

      "The Grizz offer tender and creepy folk mantras that function as a Paxil substitute or antidote, depending on your disposition." Spin Magazine

      "The gentlemen of Grizzly Bear paw around in wholly distinct regions of gentle, nocturnal psych-folk, conjuring visions of an imagined bedroom collaboration between the Doug Yule-era Velvet Underground, Nick Drake, and a pajama-clad Pooh with his head jammed in a honey jar." Pitchfork Media

      "Grizzly Bear captured its etherized folk on the beautiful Horn of Plenty (Kanine), a dreamy, evocative record that sounds like it was recorded a mile below sea level." Time Out NY

      "Dreamy vocals and pillowy, guitar-driven effects that evoke Neil Young on cough syrup." V Magazine

      “The pure atmospheric power of the songs is more than enough to hypnotize” Rolling Stone

      Drink Up Buttercup

      Farewell Captain / Sosey & Dosey

      Born in a Buck's County barn on a frigid winter night, Drink Up Buttercup has gained an international following in only one year's time. After being kicked out of their practice space for disturbing the horses, Drink Up was soon besieged with praise in publications like Philadelphia Weekly, and in blogs such as Almack's Dance Hall, Ear Farm, and The Music Slut. 'Philly quartet Drink Up Buttercup build you up with the post-Beatles harmonies of the La's and the post-Beatles surrealism of Electric Light Orchestra or Super Furry Animals'. -
