Mom + Pop
Year Established: 2009 Genre Focus: DIY indie rock, indie pop Website: www.momandpopmusic.com
As if the name doesn't already say it all, Mom + Pop Records strives to emulate the non-corporate feel of yesteryear - and though it was only founded a few years ago in 2009 the label has already seen significant success. With an emphasis on artitst freedom and a DIY aesthetic, several of the most widely-praised albums of the last few years have come from artists on Michael Goldstone's New York based label, including Sleigh Bells, Metric, Neon Indian, Andrew Bird, Fidlar, and Flume. Mom + Pop is another label that has us wondering what the future will hold, and their name has gained such weight that a co-sign from them is worth it's weight in gold for rising indie bands.
