Our friends and followers will be aware that Circuit Sweet thrives all that is true DIY. The community surrounding independent labels- DIY shows and unique and heartfelt releases. A release with a personal touch means so much more than purchasing a manufactured basic record.  Working within the industry and putting out a record of our own we have come to cherish individuals and collectives who work hard to do the same- to promote and share a valuable release/artist, something needed to be discovered by more. From a simple share on a social network site to holding a release launch, those individuals who truly care and are deeply passionate for the music they believe in put such an incredible amount of time and strength into consistently providing support for that chosen act.
 A label which is no stranger to the site and one we urge YOU to support due to their DIY ethics, solid releases and array of talented bands is that of Community Records.  The DIY label based in New Orleans, Louisiana- pride themselves on delivering the best in underground punk, reggae, hardcore, ska, experimental, noise etc. Community Records try to create something different, something positive, inclusive, beautiful, inspiring and something reflecting quality. Their efforts, all of which paying of. Their bands are united not on the basis of musical style but more on the common goal of making challenging music in a radical way. Community Records aim to break down the walls between artists and listeners and the one thing that sets the New Orleans label apart from others is, despite putting out physical releases they also offer the majority of their music available as a free download.
