Postmodern Records, founded by myself and my good friend and frequent collaborator Nikko Whitworth, acts as both a record label and a collective to help promote and curate the vast amount of experimental and exploratory music found in and around Vancouver.
The label primarily focuses on music that may not normally be represented by other labels or outlets and hopes to be able to shine a light on the bands and groups playing locally who's sound cannot so easily fall under one or two descriptive titles.
