In this episode Julia Fredersdorff, Claire Johnston, and Sam Dowson discuss the positives and negatives of record labels. Speaking from their own personal experiences the three discuss how record labels are curators of music, and documenters of culture. They discuss the aesthetics of vinyl and the joy of playing records, and reflect on how record labels can also work against the artist.

This conversation was facilitated by Ursula Woods, and recorded at our In Conversation event at the Rosny Barn in August 2021. We would like to thank Clarence Council Arts and Events for their support.
