Milk! Records is an independent label started by Courtney Barnett in 2012. At this official Milk! online store you can buy direct from the artist. We occasionally curate special events, compilations, collaborations, split 7” vinyl releases and artist designed t-shirts & curios from friends and artists we love. We call these Milk! Projects and the majority of these profits help run the label.
Our first Milk! Records Compilation A Pair Of Pears (With Shadows) was recorded over one weekend in March 2014 at Headgap Studios (Preston, Melbourne) with Burke Reid. Fun fact: Courtney originally wanted to call the compilation Vomit Cock and it was to be a compilation of punk songs. Nobody really wrote a punk song, so she instead drew a still-life of some fruit and hence the cover and title was born. The project was funded by a very successful Pozible pre-order campaign.
Our second Milk! Records Compilation Good For You was recorded over one weekend in September 2015 at Newmarket Studios (North Melbourne) with Cal Barter. Oliver Mestitz (The Finks) came up with the title, and everybody wrote a brand new song loosely based on the theme Good For You. The release of this compilation was coupled with an East Coast Australian Tour. 23 milk crew piled into an old school bus and took our travelling show on the road.
