About

Spirit Goth is a diy artist-run label that specializes in releasing lo-fi pop music on vinyl & cassettes. The sound spans from bedroom pop, dream pop, shoegaze, post-punk, new wave, jangle pop - basically just indie rock in general. 

The label was started in 2016 in a college dorm by Josh Hwang (aka CASTLEBEAT). The very first release was Girlfight by Jaded Juice Riders, Josh’s high school lo-fi surf project. In the early days, he used to record cassettes by hand on an old tape deck, one cassette at a time. Since then, Spirit Goth has grown organically via word-of-mouth / the internet, but is still run by Josh along with the help of his girlfriend, Sonia Gadhia.

 We want to be more than just a label - instead, a community that supports true indie music & diy art. One of our goals as a modern-day indie label is to recreate how people view record labels in the music industry. We put our artists first and strive to work collaboratively, as partners, to help achieve their visions.
