Korda Records has already made quite the impression on the Twin Cities. The burgeoning cooperative record label was founded in Minneapolis in late 2012 by longtime friends and musical collaborators Allison LaBonne, David Schelzel, Brian Tighe, and Jim Ruiz, who have all managed to put out new releases from their respective groups Typsy Panthre, Jim Ruiz Set, the Ocean Blue, and the Starfolk -- as well as two compilations and a re-issue of the Hang-Ups self-titled record -- over the course of just one productive year.
Korda will host another showcase to mark the release of Korda Kompilation 2 this Saturday night at the Cedar Cultural Center. The concert also boasts the first live performance by the Owls in two years. Gimme Noise chatted with LaBonne, Schelzel, and Tighe about the challenges and joys that comes with running your own record label, what they have in store for their fans at the showcase, and their plans for Korda in the future.
