Independent Label Week

Independent-Label-Week-small

“Independent Label Week is an annual celebration of independent record labels worldwide. Through label-organised special events, releases and more, the primary aim is to encourage audience engagement with their local independent labels, and also to learn more about labels outside of their hometowns.”

Fishrider Records is all about discovering new music. We bring you the best of the new underground sounds of Dunedin, a small city with a rich alternative music history, perched on the edge of the world in the South West Pacific ocean.

We joined up as part of the very first Independent Label Week – 9 to 15 November – to encourage those who may not have heard of us yet to discover new music.

To help with that element of discovery during Independent Label Week anyone purchasing one of one of our 2015 releases from Death and the Maiden or The Shifting Sands will receive another back-catalogue release free – your choice of albums by Trick Mammoth (“Floristry”, 2014), Opposite Sex (“Opposite Sex”, 2012) or The Puddle (“Playboys In The Bush” 2010).

There’s no extra postage – in fact our postage worldwide is only $15 NZD (6.50 GBP) for LPs so when you buy direct from us it should cost about the same as it would from a local store.

It’s all part of making Independent Label Week a great chance to discover new music from far-away places without costing you a fortune.

So head to our Bandcamp page and order either –

Death And The Maiden’s self-titled debut


or

“Cosmic Radio Station” by The Shifting Sands

Use the comment box when you order through our Bandcamp page to choose your preferred free back-catalogue ‘discovery’ album option – or let us choose for you if you can’t decide.

If you are in Dunedin you can find us at Taste Merchant’s Record Fair on Saturday 14 November. We will have all our catalogue there, plus the catalogue of our UK partner label Occultation Recordings.
