best local label that takes way too long to get around to actually putting out music in america New York 2003 - DFA RECORDS
The first few singles on DFA RECORDS were monster jams: the Rapture's "House of Jealous Lovers" and knockouts by the Juan Maclean and LCD Soundsystem. So what happened? The next Rapture single only came out in England; the DFA production team's inspired mix CDs appeared with a British magazine and as a pricey French import. Two more long-delayed singles appeared this summer, and albums are due, but how about a little more love for the home country, guys?
