Label history & discography

Orindal Records

Orindal Records is a Chicagoland DIY music label specializing in vinyl, tape & sometimes CD releases for experimental songmakers, gentle weirdos & melancholic introverts from California to Maine. The label was founded in 2011 by me, Owen Ashworth, & it's still just me running this thing.

General inquiries & demo submissions can be sent to orindalrecords@gmail.com. That's the only email address.

I don't answer every email I receive & I don't listen to every piece that gets sent to me, but I really do try. Orindal is not actively seeking demos but you can share your music if you want. I'm much more likely to listen if you send a streaming link (Soundcloud is fine) along with a short, one paragraph description of your music. One email is enough. I will write back to you if I'm interested. Please don't mail unsolicited physical media.

Thank you for supporting Orindal Records!
