I want you guys all to know about Alpha Pup Records, one of the most avant-garde, creative and future-oriented record labels in the world, and my very favorite.

ALPHA PUPAlpha Pup Records & Digital Distribution is a boutique digital music distributor located in downtown Los Angeles that represents over 40 of the world’s top independent labels. Bold and forward-thinking, Alpha Pup is an outlet for daring and experimental sounds from some of the world’s most creative musical minds, spanning all popular genres. From the classic funk and soul catalog of Westbound Records (Funkadelic, Ohio Players, P-Funk All Stars) to the screaming punk rock of Gold Standard Laboratories (The Mars Volta, !!!, The Locust) as well as the Alpha Pup label artist roster (Glitch Mob, Daedelus, Nosaj Thing, Free The Robots, DJ Nobody, Carlos Niño, Nocando, AWOL One & Daddy Kev) and Brainfeeder (Flying Lotus, SAMIYAM, Ras G), the Alpha Pup catalog includes some of the most vital and important albums in independent music history.

Recently released on Alpha Pup is the debut album for Gaslamp Killer called My Troubled Mind, and up next are albums by the Glitch Mob, Free the Robots, Daedelus and Nocando. Wow.

Alpha Pup is also behind the world-renowned club night Low End Theory in LA which also issues a monthly podcast; this month’s version is from Mary Anne Hobbs and Gaslamp Killer and you can find it here. With many big-name artists active in the West Coast community and around the world, expect to see talent from the Alpha Pup roster in sweaty clubs, massive shows, and outdoor art festivals all season long.

Stay up to date with Alpha Pup events and new releases on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, the Alpha Pup website, and of course, right here on DF5K.
