Best new record label - 2004
THE SOCIAL REGISTRY
"Modern Music/Antiquated Ideals" is the motto of THE SOCIAL REGISTRY, the two-year-old imprint currently situated at the epicenter of Brooklyn's burgeoning noise scene. Not sure what those "antiquated ideals" are exactly (limited-edition vinyl?), but the music of freak-out collective Gang Gang Dance, dreamy droners Icewater Scandal, dirty indie rawkers Blood on the Wall, and electro-duo Ghost Exits is definitely modern.
