Manimal Vinyl is a Los Angeles based record label founded in 2006 by experimental musician and fashion stylist, Paul Beahan. They were originally known as a psychedelic folk label that makes semi-annual tribute records for worldwide charities, having eventually switched to dance music and progressive underground. They are the label who has release debut records from act ranging from Warpaint to Bat for Lashes and exclusive singles from Moby, Duran Duran, Carla Bruni, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. In 2008, they founded the annual Manimal Festival in Pioneertown, California which ran from 2008-2010. The festival has featured line-ups with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Warpaint, Ariel Pink and papercranes. Manimal has offices in Los Angeles and New York City. In 2015, Manimal signed on with legendary avant-garde artist Yoko Ono to release the highly anticipated sequel to 2007's Yes, I'm A Witch with Yes, I'm A Witch Too which features collaborations and remixes from Death Cab for Cutie, Miike Snow, Penguin Prison, Moby, Peter Bjorn and John, Cibo Matto, and Sparks. As of 2016, Manimal is a fully functioning label, distributor, publicity firm and sync/licensing for TV and Film.
