Kranky is an independent record label, located in Chicago, Illinois. It was started in 1993 by Bruce Adams and Joel Leoschke. The bands it houses are noted for combining experimental and often electronic influences with elements of more traditional rock structures, and many of the artists on Kranky are inspired by or revolve around ambient, psychedelic, and experimental music.
Their first release was the debut album, Prazision LP, by Labradford in 1993.
