Planting Seeds Records is home to the best in independent popular music. From the fuzzed out melodic pop/rock of Freeheat (featuring Jim Reid, Ben Lurie and Nick Sanderson of The Jesus & Mary Chain - plus Romi Mori of The Gun Club), International Jetsetters (featuring Mark Crozer and Loz Colbert of the Jesus And Mary Chain) and The Tamborines (Fuzz folk pop from London via Brazil) to the gentle mellow atmospheric flow of NYC folk chanteuse Linda Draper’s angelic vox and acoustic guitar - try even the superb pop excellence of The Voyces or the can’t miss ultra cool electropop from Alex Sharkey’s Pinkie - Who can forget the rebirth of PSR’s first band Sunday Smoke Kit led by singer/songwriter/PSR co-founder Scott Meiggs…a rather simple formula…it’s Timeless, Essential, Cool, music.

Planting Seeds began back in 1998 with the release of low-fidelity heroes, Sunday Smoke Kit. The label followed with a slew of releases from Astropop 3, bossa nova ala Jumprope, CMJ darlings and garage pop with boy/girl exchange in Athens, GA’s Gritty Kitty, 3AM moods via the UK’s Dakota Suite, psych folk with Michael Barrett (of The Essex Green and Ladybug Transistor among others), and a slew of other fine crafted pop music.

Along the way Planting Seeds’ have worked with many artists on a variety of projects - Merge Records’ Camera Obscura, The Mendoza Line, Sister Vanilla (Linda Reid and William Reid of JAMC), Mark Gardener (of Ride), The Essex Green, pop legend Marshall Crenshaw, guitarist John Beland (Rick Nelson, Flying Burrito Brothers), Jeffrey Foskett (The Beach Boys and Brian Wilson), John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) and more!
