Crammed has released over 250 albums and 250 singles by artists from all over the world, ranging from Aksak Maboul to Bel Canto, Carl Craig, DJ Morpheus (& the Freezone series), Eddie Fowlkes, Flat Earth Society, The Gruesome Twosome, The Honeymoon Killers (let's skip some letters) ... to Snooze, Suba, Tek 9 & 4hero, Zap Mama, Hector Zazou and Zuco 103 ...

Crammed's sub-labels have included the Made To Measure composers' series, world music collection Cramworld, electronic music imprints SSR, Language & Selector, and Ziriguiboom, a collection devoted to new Brazilian music. Nowadays, Crammed would like to believe that borders between genres are no longer indispensable, so most releases tend to come out under the simple "Crammed" banner.

Crammed's current roster includes Konono N°1, Cibelle, Koçani Orkestar, Taraf de Haidouks, Bebel Gilberto, Balkan Beat Box, DJ Dolores, Tuxedomoon, Shantel, Kasai Allstars, Think Of One, Mahala Rai Banda, newcomers Lonely Drifter Karen & Allá, and more.


MEGAFAUN: Free single off the forthcoming album!

MEGAFAUN is back and better than ever ! New Album, New Tour.

This September, Crammed Discs will release 'Megafaun,' the self-titled follow-up to MEGAFAUN's critically acclaimed, 'Gather, Form & Fly,' which Pitchfork called "ingeniously ramshackle" in a rave review.

Here's what their friend Bon Iver has to say about the new recording in a recent interview on Pitchfork: "I've been listening to their new record the last couple days and just crying like a total pussy. Everything is so good."

MEGAFAUN's first single off the album is entitled "These Words". It was premiered on Pitchfork on July 7, and is available for download below. This song encapsulates the Megafaun we know and the Megafaun we’ve yet to hear... with its indelible piano melody, hypnotic beats and gorgeous vocals, underpinned by loops of field recordings made by Joe Westerlund during his travels in Bali and rural North Carolina:  a round-robin of gamelan, ambient sounds, frogs, and cicadas...
