Translinguistic Other (TLO) is an independent record label specializing in limited releases on analog formats.

We are inspired by the slippery, mythical darkness of the Pacific Northwest. We dig long, meditative improvisations, polyrhythmic synthscapes, cool motorik vibes, cavelike reverb, deep drones, and feedback trails that hint at the multidimensional contours of infinity.

TLO was founded in 2009 by multimedia artists Emily Pothast and David Golightly.
(Before it was a record label, Translinguistic Other was the title of a blog maintained by Emily. The blog lives here.)
