This is a blog run by Dylan and Cameron, the guys behind black with sap records, based in Spokane, WA, Missoula, MT, and Idaho Falls, ID. The purpose? To keep friends up to date on what’s going on with the label and distro and to post other fun stuff that we feel is relevant.

We believe that music should be a means of building a community through which information and ideas can be passed. It’s given and taught both of us a lot and this is our way of giving back.

Black with sap records puts out CDs/cassettes/records (hopefully soon) from bands we like within the diy community, regardless of genre or classification. We’re always down to hear new bands and work with cool people. If you’re interested, e-mail us at blackwithsaprecords [at] and we’ll see what we can come up with.

We’re also down for setting up shows in Missoula and Spokane during school months and Idaho Falls during the summer. We mostly just do basement shows at our houses but sometimes at other venues, as well. If you’re interested in that, e-mail us at the aforementioned address.

Also: disclaimer. Any albums posted for download are for reviewing purposes only and should be purchased at some point or deleted. But let’s be honest, most of what is posted is either out of print or put out by the bands themselves or small DIY labels like ours. So, RIAA, move along. Nothing to see here.

ATTN: Labels/bands. If for any reason you would like a link taken down just e-mail us and we will take the link down immediately.
