We are Topshelf Records.

We started doing this in 2005 out of a love for music — particularly on the local level. Now, years later, we’ve traded our dorm rooms and parents’ garages for our own office, quit our nine-to-fives and do our best to keep this little labor of love going. Topshelf is the result of a handful of people all really enjoying something — the overlap of a ven diagram of eclectic tastes and musical backgrounds. We work with our roster to provide them with support in any way that we can — to go beyond just releasing albums. We friggin’ love doing this.

Generally speaking, we ship most items within a three to five days of receiving an order (exceptions being if we are waiting on more stock, if you’ve ordered multiple items and one is a pre-order or not in stock or what you’ve ordered is a pre-order).

If you’re located in the UK or EU, you might want to visit our EU / UK online store as it will have more affordable shipping rates and faster delivery for you.

Demo Submission

Please avoid sending large file attachments!

While we do accept demo submissions, please limit them to links to properly labeled, high quality mp3s or streams (Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Haulix, etc.) and only send them to the "General Inquiry" email address above. Please do not email attached mp3s directly, as we will immediately delete them. We do listen to every demo we receive that adheres to these guidelines, but due to the amount of time and resources it demands, we are not able to personally respond to every submission. We will contact you if we're interested in what you've sent. Thanks!
