The Label

As a label we are dedicated to sharing great songs and artists throughout the World.

“In the past few years the San Francisco label has solidified itself as arguably the best fledgling company in the indie-record biz, thanks to a roster nicely balanced between established acts (Hayden, Mark Kozelek of the Red House Painters, The Posies) and talented up and comers (the mind bendingly great My Morning Jacket, British folkie James William Hindle).”
- Rob van Alstyne, The Mac Weekly

“Badman seems to have established themselves as quite the formidable singer/songwriter label. I have yet to hear an untalented musician, and I have also yet to hear a lackluster singer.”
- Stinkweeds

- We have international distribution and sell our music around the globe.
- Our albums can also be found at cdbaby.com, iTunes, Rhapsody.com, and other quality sites.

Type Foundry Studios

“Badman founder Dylan Magierek, who has shown his recording skill by making Mark Kozelek’s solo material ring somehow far fuller than one thought vocals, an acoustic guitar, and some AC/DC covers might possibly sound, can again take a deep bow here. It would be wonderful if everything Badman put out was both recorded by Magierek and accompanied by Nyree Watts’ photography, as much of their catalog, including the James William Hindle record, already is.”
- Nate Hogan, Dusted Magazine

“These sound sick !!! i cannot believe this record!! …i cannot get over how well everything is recorded.”
- Jon Salter of Camera Records talking about the new Mother Hips album.
