Label Birthday: Seven Long Years of Audio Antihero (Download: Free Albums by Benjamin Shaw & Nosferatu D2)

I’ve been doing this way too long. Audio Antihero started in October 2009 and has been dying ever since. Thanks to everybody for their support in keeping this dream alive.

By way of a small celebration of the past seven years, you can download our two debut releases (Nosferatu D2 and Benjamin Shaw) for free via Bandcamp for the next seven days.


Thank you all so much.

If you’d like to continue to support Audio Antihero beyond our seventh year, our latest two releases from Magana and CHUCK are available to order now:

Audio Antihero’s ‘Last Broadcast’ Halloween Mixtape

Spooky October time. I put together this Halloween mixtape, featuring lots of songs and scares from some of my favourite Horror soundtracks (and more).It’s hard to find good alternative Halloween / October music, so I really hope that you like it. Listen via Mixcloud or Soundcloud.

If interested in the Audio Antihero affiliated material in the playlist, you can hear more of those via Bandcamp or Spotify:  

Thank you as always and Happy Halloween.

New Signing / Free Single + Pre-Order: Magana

Really happy to announce a new addition to the Audio Antihero roster: Brooklyn’s Magana. Jeni makes beautiful beautiful music, it’s haunted, emotional and eclectic and I think you’re gonna love it. The “Golden Tongue” EP is out on October 28th.
This release kind of came out of nowhere. I was just really lucky to get this opportunity and I totally wasn’t going to pass on it. I’m really excited for you to hear the whole EP but in the meantime, I hope you’ll enjoy Magana’s “Get It Right” single which I think is a pretty good introduction.

Upcoming Live Dates – More TBA:

October 26th – The Studio at Webster Hall, Manhattan, New York (LAUNCH SHOW: Tickets & Info)

November 18th – Rockwood Music Hall, Manhattan, New York

Early Press:

“He tells us of the forgotten people of New York City, the dead end jobs, the bottomless hopelessness of keeping a dying relationship alive….but also the romance of a night spent on a rooftop, or sleeping on a beach, or the chase for one last drink at one last bar.”The Line of Best Fit

“Seriously, do not let this one pass you by.” GoldFlakePaint

“Hopelessly optimistic? Or just hopeless? Winning compilation (and a) curious world.”London in Stereo

“He is one of life’s great narrators; he invites us to join him in a world of doomed high school romances, ageing friendships and awkward bedroom encounter…My Band Is A Computer marks CHUCK out as part of a natural lineage of lo-fi experimenters, you can trace his songwriting through Daniel Johnston, Young Marble Giants, Galaxie 500, even at times Jonathan Richman.”For the Rabbits

“Playing like a collaboration between Owen Ashworth and Bret Easton Ellis, the CHUCK brand of observant and at times cringe-inducingly honest indie pop will no doubt prove divisive…Covering everything that’s terrible and everything that’s not about being a young adult in the twenty-first century, somehow managing to tap into the human kernel at the centre of the zombified lurch of nostalgia and regret.” Wake the Deaf

“Celebratory DIY freak-fun.” IMPOSE

“CHUCK’s kooky collage-rock and lo fi wonky electronic pop, which congruously flows between The Magnetic Fields, Mercury Rev, Weezer, Apples In Stereo and even The Pixies, absorbs its influences to create a gorgeous, quietly optimistic, kind of melancholy and pathos.”Monolith Cocktail

PRE-ORDER: My Band Is a Computer by CHUCK

Delighted to announce a new addition to the Audio Antihero family in CHUCK from Brooklyn. A polarizing artist, he’s been making weird kid pop for years and I’m excited to get to share what he does with some new people.

In other, stranger news, I thought it’d be a good idea to start a sub-label, by the name of Old Money Records (cos you probably gotta have a little bit of old money to run a fucking DIY label), so in addition to being AAH015, this will be OM001. Old Money Records, if it lasts, will be focused on archiving and celebrating lesser heard artists via compilations and reissues. We’ll see how that goes. Regardless, I’m really glad to get to share this remastered collection from CHUCK.

Thanks for giving this a try. Back soon with more.
