Who We Are

Nova Labs is an independent, eclectic record label based out of Ames, IA, focusing mostly on Iowa bands that exist in the margins of the scene. Currently we’re putting out releases by some of the greatest avant-weirdo-noise music currently around, as well as re-issuing many great and under-appreciated works from some of the greatest bands in the history of our state. And music and stuff we just generally like.


We are generally planning several months ahead in regards to releases, and have quite a few planned out, but if you have a record (or are working on one) that you think we would like, we will do our best to give it a listen, and will give it consideration.  Send contact info and music samples to: Bryon
