OSR Tapes

I only recently learned about OSR Tapes, a New York based non-profit label that's been putting out cool lo-fi, avant garde type of rock'n'roll since 2007, and no sooner had I learned about them than I learned they were closing. You can currently get the OSR digital catalog on bandcamp for $25 -- or order cassettes and albums from their webpage They're shipping through June 17 and then that's it, so check em out while they're still around. Here's a sampling of the catalog, go over to the OSR bandcamp page and delve deeper.
