Labels You Love: XLR8R Readers' Top 20 Labels
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
All week long, we've been posting features and lists detailing our favorite labels—if you've missed any of that, catch up with them all here—but for this year's edition of Labels We Love, we wanted to do something a little different. Last week, we put out the call for our readers to vote for their favorite imprints, and although it took a while to tabulate the thousands of votes we received from around the globe, we've come up with a list of the Top 20 labels, as voted by the XLR8R faithful. Looking at results, one thing is immediately clear: our readers have pretty damn good taste.
