Independent Music for Independent Minds


is an Independent distro and label based out of Maryland. We offer hundreds of titles in our catalog by artists of all genres, many of which are Independent releases that you may not be familiar with. It is our goal to bring to the forefront music that is ignored by the corporate owned record labels, radio stations, magazines, and television.

Our slogan “Independent Music For Independent Minds” is based on that goal. We want you to enjoy music for what it is and not because some radio station says you should. So have a look around our website and check out the mp3′s. Hopefully you will find something you enjoy. Many of the CD’s we stock are limited and international releases by Independent labels and bands, so if you see something you are interested in grab it up, it may not be here tomorrow.
