Responsible Information

On June 28th, 2010, while discussing local music over lunch at our second favorite New Paltz pizza vendor, we decided to start Responsible Records. The pizza was okay, but definitely too hot. More importantly, we committed ourselves to begin distributing extremely affordable (i.e.“cheap”) cassette releases from our favorite local artists.  Then we realized tapes are sort of dumb and decided to make everything free to download.

Every release is available for free download from our catalog.

We copy the tapes ourselves, put together the packaging, lug the stupid things around and try to sell them. Each tape is two bucks.  You can buy them from Rhino Records or at our shows.

If you want to buy our tapes but you do not live anywhere near New Paltz, send us an e-mail and we’ll work something out.

If you are interested in carrying our tapes in your record shop, we will be very surprised.
