Ever wonder what's it's like to work at a record label? My name's Chris and I work at Polyvinyl Records. I used to pack mailorder, but now I head up the production department.

Come on in, join my blog, and I'll show you my world...

 

Check out Alvvays’ brand new video for “Archie, Marry Me”!

The track comes from the band’s fantastic self-titled debut full-length, which just hit stores last week. 

The clip was shot using a super 8 camera, but unlike that JJ Abrams flick this video doesn’t feature any aliens. Or does it??

In other, completely related news, Alvvays announced some US dates for this fall, which you can check out here.

Time’s running out! Only a few hours left to place an order in our E-Store and receive a sheet of four Polyvinyl temporary tattoos included in your package for free.
I can think of no better way to show your support for your favorite label than by displaying these cool designs on your skin for at least as long as until you take your next shower.

is The Past is a Grotesque Animal digital download available to people who pre-ordered the DVD?

The download file size of the new of Montreal movie is too big to offer through our site, so for now we’re only able to offer the physical version of the film.
