Welcome to Universal Warning Records! We are an independent record label and production company featuring various ala' cart services ranging from audio and video production, digital and physical distribution, as well as print work for audio packaging. Music is our first love and we work with a broad net-work of regional and national artists. Below are some recent projects we either put out or are developing. Please drop us a line with any questions or check out the various links for our releases, information, or pricing on projects.
And last but not least for 2014 we're excited to introduce a brand new side project from some of SEPA's best! On No Summer's self-titled debut EP, Spencer Dorsey of Jumper Cable is joined by Beach Slang's JP Flexner on drums and Plow United's Joel Tennenbaum on bass. Check below for No Summers debut music video for their first single - " Throwing It All Of The Roof " which takes us on a journey to our collective forgotten pasts.
Universal Warning recently teamed up with Paper + Plastic for the new CD release of New Jerseys indie pop power house, ASPIGA. "What Happened To You?" Is a pure ride into the aural parallels of the Mid 90's underground sounds, without sounding derivative based. Think Superchunk meets Jawbreaker as piers, not fans.
Universal Warning Records would like to proudly announce one of the best bands we have had the pleasure to stumble upon in the last 10 years. And what makes that even better? We are lucky enough to be working with them. Call it post hardcore, post shoe gaze, or progressive rock - Echoes bleeds an atmospheric brand of heavy music that creates a soudscape of intricate paths that lead to tsunami style swirling waves of crashing guitar and drums. A true epic of an album in every sense of the word.
