The 75orLess music label was started in February 2006, and has since released over 170 albums, specializing in indie, punk, garage, and other non-traditional and non-commercial music genres. We obviously couldn’t compete in the modern music business, so we aren’t going to try. Convincing anyone of anything positive has become too difficult. By putting this music out there, there’s hope the right music fans will find it. The label specializes in small print runs on vinyl or compact disc, with hand printed/assembled packaging, and offers each album for sale through the label webpage. Although we distribute promotional copies and downloads for our bands to places they will most be appreciated by various like-minded media outlets, we do not distribute our cds in stores outside the Providence, RI/ Southeastern Mass area. Typical releases have between 50-500 copies made. We also offer advice on affordable custom packaging creation and design, recording, live booking, equipment hook-ups, promotion and a shoulder to cry on. 99% of our bands aren’t on tour, but perform live in the RI/Mass area, hence the traditional role of ‘label’ is quite overstated.
75orLess was a music review site that existed over the twelve year span 2001-2013. It remains online as an archive of over 1,900 album, book, and dvd reviews, each in under seventy five words. It was recognized by Time Magazine, USA Today, Yahoo!, and The Bloggies back when print media was still king.
We are based outside of Providence, Rhode Island. We offer no apologies, nor should you hold that against us.
