20 Years of Frenchkiss

Let the record show: For two decades, Frenchkiss Records has had a powerful, pungent, and positive influence on independent music. As the fortunes of labels large and small have risen and (often) fallen, Frenchkiss has soldiered on, introducing the world to Passion Pit, The Hold Steady, Local Natives, The Antlers, The Dodos, and the founding fathers of the label, Les Savy Fav, the band that started it all.

Make no mistake: Since 1999, Frenchkiss has brought a much-needed dose of sweat, sweetness, outrageousness, exuberance, and simple joy to a world badly in need of it. We rest our case.
