Sidecho has released albums from such artists as Tokyo Rose, the Pale Pacific and Sherwood, among others, and will release a new album from Stars of Track & Field this year. Sidecho releases were previously handled by RED Distribution, Sidecho also acts as a small label group. Independent labels Cheap Lullaby, Uprising, Anodyne and End Sounds have all released albums through Sidecho.
Another rock label joining Koch is the newly-formed Sailor’s Grave Records, which has albums from veteran punk acts U.S. Bombs and Ducky Boys on the way.
