Siltbreeze is an American independent record label based in Philadelphia. It is known for its eclectic roster of artists and releases of experimental, noise, folk, and rock-based music. Founded in 1989 by Ohio native Tom Lax, the label evolved out of a zine of the same name which he published from 1987 until 1992. The first label release was a Halo of Flies EP, and soon after, Lax produced a steady stream of record releases by The Dead C, The Gibson Bros., Sebadoh, The Strapping Fieldhands, Harry Pussy, Jim Shepard, and Mike Rep among others throughout the early and mid 1990s.
The label slowed its output toward the later 1990s until the mid and late 2000s. This proved to be a second boom for the label, during which Lax released records by a new crop of artists including Times New Viking, Sic Alps, Pink Reason, Psychedelic Horseshit, U.S. Girls, and Eat Skull.
