i very much agree with the laud heaped on sub pop, matador and merge (internal politics on the first two at least notwithstanding) and would like to add 4ad to the list. a lot of labels flourish for a time (epitaph and jade tree pop to mind) by focusing on a genre they specialize in, but the ones th...
