WE LOVE RECORDS

Slow & steady, since 2006

Layer 1
Carefully considered

Away from the industry churn, focusing on recordings from exceptional artists.

Persevere & preserve

An art project disguised as a business. We're in it for the long game.

Artists, forever.

Different formats, technology, and tools will come and go. But artists are forever.

Ceres

Uncool and unabashed – CERES play anthemic, beautifully constructed pop with a dark edge, often hitting so perfectly right to the gut. IDWTBABH is a band at their most inspired, and blissfully unguarded all the same.
