Brooklyn and Chicago 
It’s noble to dedicate yourself to something larger than what’s shining back in a selfie, to reach, to pull and push a space for art and expression and ideas in the world. To band together with vision as an adhesive and forge out into the wild improvisational unknown.
The word band traces its etymology back to Old French bande where we get our English words for banner and bind. Since band is a smaller group from a tribe, it’s nice to think of Northern Spy Records as a tribe who’s bands are owner / operators of the label and who’ve been putting out some extra special records in this century’s second decade. 
We’ve had our headphones poised with the patchwork pleasure of Chicago Underground Duo lately. Makes us wonder and dream of what’s next and then what’s after that.
