About OHR

     Open Hand Records is a completely D.I.Y., donation-based record label and collective, based in various parts of Massachusetts. This whole thing started as an acoustic solo-project and myspace page, and has become the one thing in my life that I am most proud of. We release good music, made by good people. The bands on this label are some of my best friends, and in music (and any other part of life), friends need to stick together. This collective is comprised of people from all over the country (and now the UK!) who know that in working together, we can create something truly awesome.
     On this site, you will find a ton of music available for free download, as well as some music for physical sale, and if you feel so inclined, we encourage you to click any “donate” buttons you may see along the way.
     Seriously though. The bands you love are poor as fuck. Listen to their music and buy their shit. Go see them rock out in your friends’ basements, and realize that the members of these bands are depleting their bank accounts to make your life a little bit more enjoyable.
     Support your scene or there won’t be one.

❤ Aaron.

  2. Hi. OHR.
    you have some very good bands and I’d like to download some of them but I have a problem, I dont know how I make donations. I’ve donated to Bomb the Music Instustri, and it was very easy unlike here I cant figure it out. Help me out please.

    • hey! until i can figure out an easier way to handle donations, any donations have to go to our paypal account: aaron@openhandrecords.com. or you can snailmail donations to the address on the ABOUT page. just make sure if you use paypal that you specify what each donation is for. thank you very much!
