Fifteen years ago, a couple of co-workers in Chicago started a record label by contacting a band they had never met and offering to release a full-length album. The result, almost named "curmudgeon," became kranky, a record label that routinely pushes the sonic limits of music. Out of appreciation and admiration, we invited the label to pick out some tracks to represent the history of their pioneering label.

The almost two-hour podcast, mixed by our rich-media guru Bryant, begins with a track from kranky's first release in '93 ("Labradford") and follows the aural adventure that the label has been taking us on every year since.
