Asaurus Records

Today, I'd like to tell you crazy kids (yes, BOTH of you) about Asaurus Records, the label which is essentially leading the twee scene in Boston today, despite the fact they're located in Athens, Georgia.

It orginally started in Detroit, in the harsh winter of 2001. Actually, that's embelishment, but it is from Detroit circa 2001. In 2005, they relocated to Athens, Georgia, for some inexplicable reason. They describe themselves as interested in lo-fi, indie pop, and quiet noise, but about half of the music they do put out turns out to be twee, which was, I believe the purpose of this community? Well, at any rate, here's the highlights as I see them:

Pants Yell!
Ponies in the Surf
The Diskettes
New Grenada
This Bank Holiday

Asaurus Records

Alright, this was fun, we should do it again, even if you kids were already aware of Asaurus Records and I was just beating a dead horse. This community just looked so empty and sad, you know?

Happy Listening,
