If you are an early aughts indie rock lover, you know Dangerbird Records. Perhaps not in name, but by their alumni artists: Silversun Pickups, Minus the Bear, Hot Hot Heat, Delphic and more. The veteran Los Angeles label has touched greatness and continues to mentor tomorrow’s scene leaders. Traditional deals are of course still being struck with new talent, but they are also nurturing experimental work through Arthur King Presents, a series named after the collective of the same name. And then there’s Microdose, a monthly series that is still growing and changing within the label.
