Pleasure of the Text Records

Started by Nate Wooley in 2013, Pleasure of the Text Records (POTTR) is a move to create a space to publish new music in small batches and control the means of production and dissemination. Beginning with our first release, the double disc recording of Wooley's Seven Storey Mountain III and IV, POTTR keeps the music, artwork, production, and distribution at home and, as much as possible, strives for a face to face interaction between artist and audience.

Pleasure of the Text is also the home of Sound American Records and publishing, a subsidiary of and the Database of Recorded American Music. Sound American makes available information about historic and experimental music that has been lost over a few or many generations.
