Northern Spy is a Brooklyn-based independent record label formed by former staff of the legendary ESP-Disk' imprint. As an artist-run label, Northern-Spy shines the light on musicians who are tenacious, forward-thinking and making devil-be-damned fine music, while finding substance in the disparate worlds of free improvisation and popular music.

“Intrepid local label, a haven for avant-rock acts, experimental jazzers and other worthy outliers.” ~Time Out New York
