Based in New Orleans, Louisiana, the label pride themselves on delivering the best in underground punk, reggae, hardcore, ska, experimental, noise etc. Years of releasing some of the most incredible records we’ve come across, Community Records always 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 just on the basis of musical style but more on the common goal of making challenging music in a radical way.
