Bon Iver's Justin Vernon launches Chigliak Records
The Bon Iver frontman has launched Chigliak Records, an imprint of his home label Jagjaguwar.
A post on the Chigliak website, which has since disappeared, said the label will focus primarily on releasing records that have been either "never commercially released" or "locally released [in Wisconsin] and never put out on vinyl." Chigliak will also issue new recordings.
The newly minted label's first release is set to be a record from Eau Claire, Wis., outfit Amateur Love, according to Pitchfork.
