Grinding Tapes Recording Company is an independent record label that documents Boston’s indie folk music scene. Grinding Tapes releases are usually recognizable due to their unique jacket style, which is usually comprised of recycled cardboard screen printed with a single-color design.

Grinding Tapes has released albums by Elijah Wyman/tiny mtns, The Points North, Mr. Sister, Detektivbyrån, (The) Slowest Runner (in all the World), Vinegar Socks, Dreamtigers, The Woodrow Wilsons, and Hello Shark.

Grinding Tapes’ philosophy is deeply-rooted in the do it yourself ethic and political awareness championed by D.C.’s Dischord Records and Montreal’s Constellation Records. Grinding Tapes’ detailed mission statement outlines the label’s commitment to charitable donations, recycled packaging, revenue transparency, and environmentalism.
