yk records

Started in the spring of 2009, yk records is the undertaking of one Michael Eades. A long time interest that turned into reality with the opportunity to help out Uncle Skeleton release Pancho Chumley. The effort here is to share music with the world that would otherwise be unheard.

Physical releases will be a one-time short run endeavor with a focus on unique high quality packaging. Each release will be available digitally at a reasonable price, as the main focus here is to get the music heard and enjoyed.

Feel free to get in touch. Unsolicited emails, as long as they're written by a human, are always welcome.

Mailing lists may not seem like cutting edge but I promise you won't lose the news of new releases in your inbox. I also tend to tweet about these things when they happen.
