This label is the fucking best label. Heligator Records was founded by Ryan Hall (of Tome To The Weather Machine fame) after he was in the Peace Corps working to build a library in a refugee camp in Swaziland. The Malindza Refugee Camp Library in Mpaka is the efforts of his work, which includes over 1,200 books, electricity to stay open during the night, and a paid librarian who teaches classes in English & French. Heligator was created to help fund this library after Ryan left Swaziland. It’s primarily a digital singles label but he occasionally releases EPs or LPs as well. Most things cost $1 and every cent you pay to Heligator through Bandcamp goes straight fund the library. Like I said, the fucking best.
