Burnt Toast Vinyl
Burnt Toast Vinyl was founded by a Drexel University student who had initially been involved with concert promotion at the school. The label has released full albums from several prominent Philadelphia indie musicians, as well as releasing or re-releasing material on vinyl from artists on the Tooth & Nail roster. Many of the label's CD releases feature elaborate cardboard packaging.
Several of Burnt Toast's post rock and experimental groups attracted notice from magazines such as Dusted and Prefix. Among the label's best-known releases are those by Denison Witmer, Unwed Sailor, and Saxon Shore.
