News: Justin Vernon to kick off Record Label, Chigliak

ChigliakJustin Vernon of Bon Iver is set to kick off Chigliak, a sub-imprint to his parent label Jagjaguwar.

The label, named after Ed Chigliak of the 90′s show Northern Exposure will serve to reissue albums that were “never released commercially” or were “locally released but never put on vinyl.”

A largely unheard of band from Wisconsin, Amateur Love will be the first reissue with the album It’s All Aquatic which included Vernon bandmates and Megafaun members Brad and Phil Cook.

The label also intends to release music from Vernon-friendly artists like Sarah Siskind and 12 Rods.
