Best Independent Record Label

Dependent Music

It was a quiet but winning year for Dependent, which released just two mighty albums: the debut EP from its newest family member, Montreal buzz act Land of Talk ---who played HPX in November---and Jill Barber’s For All Time, the nicest, classiest monster this town ever did see. There’s a brand new Holy Fuck EP in stores now, with releases from The Remains of Brian Borcherdt and Wintersleep on deck, and did we mention heavy meadows has reunited?

1st runner-up: Just Friends, 2nd runner-up: Divorce Records
