Record Label

About

City Slang was founded in 1990 exclusively to release The Flaming Lips’ In A Priest Driven Ambulance, but quickly other bands such as Lemonheads, Yo La Tengo and Superchunk signed up as well. The label cemented its taste-making reputation by bringing more seminal alternative American bands – including Sebadoh, Hole, and Built To Spill – across to Europe through the label’s headquarters in Berlin. In more recent years though, its sonic palette has broadened, bringing through the likes of Arcade Fire, Lambchop, Calexico and Caribou – while maintaining a philosophy that puts the artist at the centre of its universe. Soon after opening offices in London and Paris, City Slang opened a US office in 2015 and is now the worldwide home to artists from the world over such as Sinkane (Brooklyn + Sudan), Roosevelt (Germany), Noga Erez (Tel Aviv), Imarhan (Algeria), Jakuzi (Istanbul), Gold Panda (UK), sir Was (Gothenburg, Sweden), plus Junior Boys (Hamilton, Canada) and Timber Timbre (Toronto, Canada).
