What record label will Ryan go with now?

i mentioned this in a previous thread, but think this should make for interesting discussion. will he stay with LH i wonder? what label do you best think ryan would suit? i think matador would be a good place for him, given their roster (cat power, new pornographers, sonic youth etc) but i have a feeling the next ryan album could receive a big audience, bigger than somewhere like matador could handle... in terms of large record companies, i think ryan would be at home over in columbia, what with their columbia nashville subsidiary, folky history and the fact it was a good home for people like jeff buckley.

i think a move away from LH would be a great thing for us ryan fans (their ineptitude re: box sets, love is hell and things like that have been very frustrating.. here's hoping ryan isn't lazy and takes time to think out a good move!

Re: What record label will Ryan go with now?

I honestly think Sub Pop may be a good fit for him. Lost Highway is traditionally fairly hands-off when it comes to creative say so, and RA needs that again (or maybe not judging from his latest output). As a general rule, companies like Columbia are very controlling. Sub Pop would give freedom, but really has a fairly decent machine driving the label. I kind of just hope he takes time, gets it together (or falls apart--it's wrong of me to say, I know), and gets back to the writer we've seen he can be.

in what way controlling? restrictive of what the artist puts out or controlling when it comes to albums being released, specific weeks per year touring, etc? because columbia strikes me as a professional organisation yes, but a company who nurture their artists. i mean thay had janis joplin, marvin gaye, bob dylan, kate bush, even alice in chains; all of which i would assume would have to be given a wide berth artistically.

i think ryan going to sub pop would be ok.. maybe a bit of a cop out? i dunno.. there's something about sub pop i've never been able to warm to, even though i love the shins etc... i think for me it will always be a grunge label trying to pretend to be introspective indie or something... i hope ryan doesn't go there, it's very "scenester", i think.. hmm.. i realise i'm not putting forth a valid argument but in my heart i don't want ryan to go there.

Re: What record label will Ryan go with now?

He probably *thinks* he'll do better on an indie, but I'm no so sure... he'll likely get less movie credits (maybe that's not a priority). I just seems like we tend to deify the "little guy" or movement oriented labels (SST, STIFF, SubPop, etc.), when often they've no better artist treatment than a major. ON THE OTHER HAND... people like Tom Waits, Bob Mould etc. are finding middleground with labels like Anti.

In RA's case sometimes he could use some filter (producer, label), so he doesn't put out a Sleazy Handshake CD on LH's $ (although I'd be happy!). Then you've got your Prince, Zappa, Michelle Shocked types that go totally indie, with sometimes mixed results. It gets harder to sort out the quality from the work in progress pieces.

I know there's been some LH critcisms, but I'm not aware of what they are (the LiH thing, but that even seems more publicity oriented). What other problems has RA had with LH? I'd be curious. Up until recently, I always figured they'd be the best match for him..

Easy Cheese sucks, but that's obviously the product of a release w/o a true RA input.

I think they'd prefer each other.

But if one's up for grabs - I'll take Conor.
