Partisan Records is an American independent record label based in Brooklyn, New York. It was started in 2007 by Ian Wheeler and Tim Putnam. Their first releases were an expanded version of Holy Sons' (Emil Amos of Om and Grails) Decline of the West and The Standard's fifth studio album Swimmer. In late September 2008, Partisan Records announced that it had signed indie folk group Deer Tick. Partisan re-issued Deer Tick's full-length debut War Elephant on November 11, 2008. Partisan Records describes itself as "a Brooklyn-based artist-run independent label dedicated to the unique visions of those we are so privileged to represent. We believe that artistry in its many forms essentially has a singular purpose: to create and share the next new story. At Partisan, our artists create the stories that others will tell."
Partisan Records also opened a European office based in Hammersmith, London under ex-Island Records and RCA marketing manager Adam Shearer.

Famous quotes containing the words records and/or partisan:
“Better the rudest work that tells a story or records a fact, than the richest without meaning.”
—John Ruskin (18191900)
“We are in a period when old questions are settled and the new are not yet brought forward. Extreme party action, if continued in such a time, would ruin the party. Moderation is its only chance. The party out of power gains by all partisan conduct of those in power.”
—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (18221893)
