Futures & Indigo Records: Sticking It To The Man

Today, one of my favourite band Futures launched their own label Indigo Records. Here’s the word from their official blog:

As a lot of you know, last week we left Mercury Records, so we could finally release our long awaited debut album. We’ve spent our week putting all our energy into ways to release it, and we can confirm that the album will be put out by our own label, created by us.

That is most definitely, for want of a better term, bad ass! Of course, the major labels have their place still, but in today’s musical landscape maybe we are seeing more that ‘going it alone’ is the way forward: see Radiohead’s ‘pay what you want’ release of ‘In Rainbows’, or the spontaneous output of the ever-elusive Jai Paul (check out his new one ‘Jasmine’).
