Russian Winter Records

Russian Winter Records is an Independent record label focused on releasing innovative emerging artists in post-punk, synthpop, punk, electronic, garage, shoegaze, noise and related genres. Formed in 2008, the label is located in Kansas City, MO.  Currently demos are being accepted through the contact page on this site. Only links to online streaming of music will be accepted. While we are accepting demos, be advised that at present our release schedule is full and we are currently not signing new artists, except for limited edition releases. Of course, if your music is compelling, the foregoing statement is nullified.

In addition to the label, Russian Winter Records also operates Russian Winter Media, a boutique PR  and artist management firm that works on a selective basis with independent artists and labels. We also publish Floorshime Zipper Boots, a leading music blog providing reviews, videos and more on unique and original emerging music. To inquire about PR services, management, or to contact the Floorshime Zipper Boots music blog, use the contact page on this site.

Russian Winter Records always accepts applications for internships. Applicants should be students majoring in a relevant field or recent graduate seeking to gain practical industry experience. Internships require 10 hours per week and are unpaid. Interns take part in all aspects of label operations, including artist screening, PR campaigns, market research and blog writing. Interns are also allowed use of our in-house recording studio (when not in use by one of our artists) to further their own creative projects. To apply for an internship please use the contact page on this site.
