This week we revisit the Brooklyn record label Kanine Records, with an in-depth interview with Lio Kanine, who has some great advice for being a successful band and hooking up with the right label, how a label can document a scene and grow with it, and the secrets to good music. We cover the early days with breakout bands Grizzly Bear, Chairlift, Surfer Blood, get into some local NYC music scene nostalgia, Ian Mckaye, skateboarding, kids, showering, venues, Florida, the label’s current international roster, and why New York is rad, all over some candy and Cigar City beer. Don’t miss this one!
