The Mylene Sheath is an independent record label, founded by Joel Proper and Lindsay Palmer. The label originated in 2007 in Covington, Kentucky & Cincinnati, OH, then later relocated to Athens, Georgia. They have a strong focus on vinyl and the overall quality in the packaging of their releases.[1]

The first release The Mylene Sheath put out was the debut record by If These Trees Could Talk.

The label has released records for over twenty artists, including Pelican, Caspian, Junius, Constants, and Aeges.[2]


The label recently signed the Seattle super-group Dust Moth, which contains current and former members of These Arms Are Snakes, Minus The Bear, Aeges, XVIII Individual Eyes, Shift and Undertow. "Dragon Mouth", the debut EP from Dust Moth, will be released on March 25, 2014. CD, 12" Vinyl and digital download.[3] The band also recently signed San Angelus, who features members of Pelican, Sparkmaker, and Red Vienna. They will be releasing a new 3-song 7" titled "UU•Ü•UU" on March 11, 2014.

Other recent releases from the label include a 7" from the highly influential instrumental powerhouse Pelican, a split 7" between Aeges and Dust Moth titled "Bad Blood", and their first ever cassette format release "Shiver" by Living Phantoms (Will Benoit of Constants solo project).

The website eMusic featured The Mylene Sheath in its label profile section.[4]
