Since 2012, L.A.-via-Brooklyn imprint felte has been shining a light on the dark, dissonant end of the indie-rock spectrum. This week, label linchpins Odonis Odonis and Chasms (pictured) wrap up the felte Presents: Everything Is Going According To Plan tour with shows in Portland (Dec. 6), Seattle (Dec. 7), and Vancouver (Dec. 8). Here, label founder Jeff Owens reveals the artists that have shaped felte’s non-conformist ethos.
“The bands on this playlist are by no means the only acts that have been inspirations for the label, but are ones that I have listened to on a consistent basis and have impacted our decision-making beyond words.”—Jeff Owens, felte
