Shelflife Records gets around. Beginning in what their website label history calls a "small southern California suburb" - they packed up and moved east to NYC two years later in 1997. It didn't end there, the cross-continental jaunts I mean, for close to 4 years later the three principal players upped and moved again... all the way back west, landing in San Francisco this time.
The artists who call Shelflife home are from the indie rock camp, bands such as: The Maybellines, The Shermans, Call and Response, The Radio Dept, Postal Blue, etc.
With close to 5o solo artists and bands, you may just have heard a Shelflife recording without realizing it.
here is a sound sampling of the label:
the shermans::lousy judge of character
the arrogants::the moments gone
brittle stars::someplace but not this place
phoebe quest::minutes and seconds
