Barsuk Records

Barsuk Records (bar-suke, from the Russian for "badger") is named after a dog, a very friendly black lab/pit-bull mix who is loved by all who meet him. Indie pop fans from all over have been having the same response to Barsuk's releases, and with good reason.

Members of This Busy Monster founded the label in 1994 to put out their own records. The label has began to release records by other bands they like, guided by the simple administrative principles of artist fairness and good old-fashioned love.
