US indie label Polyvinyl has signed up to use the services of Downtown-owned distribution firm FUGA. At the same time, it has also entered a new agreement with Downtown Neighbouring Rights. You know, for its neighbouring rights.

“Polyvinyl’s dedication to independent artists and their creative freedom perfectly aligns with FUGA’s mission to empower independent labels”, says Allie Barbera, the distributor’s Senior Business Development Manager for the Americas. “We’re truly excited to be working with such a notable, forward-thinking company that champions the independent sector and to provide them with FUGA’s breadth of services”.

Polyvinyl co-founder Matt Lunsford adds: “This move represents Polyvinyl’s continued commitment to our artist-first ethos. We are proud to provide our artists a fully independent path to digital distribution and marketing via our partnerships with FUGA and Merlin: both of whom share our passion for empowering independent music”.

Launched in 1996, Poyvinyl’s roster includes Alvvays, Deerhoof, Kero Kero Bonito, Of Montreal and Anamanaguchi.
