In 2009, our community of Portland musicians started Amigo Amiga Recordings, a record label created to release the records we were making in our home. The concept was simple: work, and carve out space that allows for a life of music – dependent only on our own devices. The first year of Amigo Amiga was dedicated to consistently releasing a/b side “singles” from Kelli Schaefer, and Drew Grow – playing release shows and tours every six weeks, and running all press, booking, management, and label duties in-house. In 2010, the label released its first full-length record, Drew Grow & the Pastors’ Wives; a compilation of the previously released released singles from DGPW – pressed to vinyl. Shortly thereafter, in March 2011, Kelli Schaefer’s singles were pressed to vinyl as her album Ghost of the Beast. Amigo Amiga continued to release a number of EP’s and full-length records: a pair in 2012 from hip-hop artist Tope, the debut record from Modern Kin, and a Kelli Schaefer EP in 2013, Bombay Beach 7” and full-length Death Tape in 2015 and 2016 respectively. Keep an eye out for some new releases in 2017, including Kelli Schaefer’s latest full-length No Identity.
