Label spotlight by Dirty Pillows

Label Spotlight: A weekly or monthly thing where we give a shout out to record labels that we think are keeping the dream alive


Phinery is a relatively new  label that has been putting out some really interesting and unique cassettes over the past year. Established in Denmark in February 2014, this superb label already boasts some impressive releases from musicians like Karl FousekHollowfonts, and Demonstration Synthesis.


The initial vision that founder Benjamin Krarup had for the label is what really sets Phinery apart. As stated in the label’s description, Phinery is the combination of art and sound. Krarup set out to create a label that would not only feature fascinating sounds, but would also promote the cover artwork and the artists behind them just as prominently.

Each release is a collaboration. Different artists and musicians are paired together for each tape. Krarup curates the label on his own, deciding which artist’s work will best compliment a musical composition, and vice versa. This joint effort between musicians and artists has yielded some excellent results. Krarup has managed to get respected artists from around the world, including Daniel EverettChristopher Norris, and Jennifer Mehigan, to provide pieces for Phinery releases.
