Placid Casual is the Cardiff based record label set up in 1998 by Super Furry Animals. It is named after a track on their album Radiator.

According to the label's website "Placid Casual retains an amateur status and an a&r policy of blatant nepotism. We exist to expose to the world (when we can be bothered), songs that come our way that may be ignored otherwise."[1] The Independent has described the label as an "enterprise run by passion not for profit".[2]

Super Furry Animals released their Welsh language album Mwng on the label before leaving to sign with Epic Records.[1]

Gruff Rhys also released his debut solo album, Yr Atal Genhedlaeth, on the label in 2005.[3]
