 Movement Magazine .com : 12.03 : Music : Barsuk Records : Christopher Possanza :
Barsuk is a Russian word meaning "badger", and the dog was so named either because he resembled a badger as a puppy, or because he liked to dig like a badger when he was a puppy, or just because we liked the word.
Our artists have a lot of control over how their music is presented to the world, more so than on most labels, and they generally own their masters and have input concerning how we market their records.
That being said, it's definitely important for us to remain viable as a business, so the Barsuk staff are much more in control of the business side (as opposed to the creation side) of the label than are the individual bands.

Billing itself as "a new kind of record company," Machine is a Chicago-based outfit with a DIY mentality and a hands-on approach to promoting their artists.
Apparently eschewing the word "Records," Pehr manages to appear at once very hip and very friendly--an unusual combination to be sure (about as unusual as a record company assuring musicians "We love demos," which this L.A.-based label also does).
