Rice Is Nice is an independent record label based in Sydney, Australia that takes its name from Welsh post-hardcore band Mclusky's 2000 single "Rice Is Nice". The label aims to promote local musicians that are unique and whose music will have longevity, rather than based on popularity.[1]


Rice Is Nice was formed in 2008 by Julia Wilson and Ben Shackleton. Wilson worked as a photographer and publicist in the music industry for the Australian labels Mushroom Records and Popfrenzy and used her knowledge to release SPOD's "Aminals" 7" in mid-2008. Since then, Rice Is Nice has signed and released the works of a number of Sydney-based artists, the musical genres of which vary greatly. As of 2012, the label is looking to expand internationally, specifically into the United States.[2]
