Local Label Spotlight: Modern Art Records

By Niki D'Andrea

Believe it or not, there are a handful of excellent indie record labels in the great state of Arizona, boasting rosters with some of our finest local artists and some hot underground national acts, as well. This week, we'd like to give a shout-out to Modern Art Records.

Modern Art Records (Phoenix) Founded in 2006

Roster includes:

The Medic Droid (Phoenix) Back Ted-N-Ted (Phoenix) Miniature Tigers (Los Angeles) Chronic Future (Phoenix) The Cover Up (Tempe)

Why they’re hot:

Modern Art is an Epic imprint, which means wider distribution. Back Ted-N-Ted played some highly-praised shows at SxSW this year. Rolling Stone named Miniature Tigers one of the 25 best bands on MySpace.
