All In The Family: Mom + Pop Music Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary With Courtney Barnett, Sleigh Bells, Tom Morello, Neon Indian And More

Given the résumés of the three founders of Mom + Pop Music (managing the likes of Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Muse, signing Rage Against The Machine, Buckcherry and Against Me!, to name only a few), it’s not surprising what the NYC-based indie label has accomplished in just 10 years. But navigating the intersection of art and commerce is extremely difficult for any upstart, and Mom + Pop has seemingly done it very well, releasing records by Courtney Barnett, Sleigh Bells, Tom Morello, Neon Indian and more. Those four artists, plus Alice Merton and Sunflower Bean, joined forces at Brooklyn Steel to celebrate the label’s decade anniversary, and MAGNET photographer Wes Orshoski was there to document this family reunion.
