Korda 001 Typsy Panthre - Typsy Panthre
Release date: October 23 2012
The recording duo Allison LaBonne and John Crozier’s self-titled debut is “a sumptuous album filled with clever/cool euro songwriting, coy breakbeats and super-cool electronic textures…It’s great stuff, and if you’re so inclined, you’ll be quite damn captivated.”
–Jon Hunt l’étoile

Korda 004 The Ocean BlueUltramarine
Release date: March 19 2013
The Ocean Blue’s records on the famed Sire Records label in the late 80s achieved widespread acclaim and radio & MTV airplay. Their follow up records on Sire and Mercury are staples of the jangly, atmospheric pop genre.  The band’s first full length in fourteen years; Ultramarine, “isn’t just a return to form,” says Matt Collar in Allmusic’s  4 star review,  “it’s one of The Ocean Blue’s best albums.”

Korda 005 The Starfolk – The Starfolk

Featuring members of indie pop darlings The Hang Ups and The Owls; The Starfolk’s debut LP is a melody rich, urgent yet ethereal chamber pop record that will haunt and transport you; with no shortage of pop hooks to launch you into the stratosphere.
