Based in the heart of the Driftless Region in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Momentous Records celebrates the spirit of the independent artist


The latest Momentous Records release is It's A Big Dumb World: A 25th Anniversary Collection by the Bean Hoy band. Momentous founder Brett Huus has remastered 12 of the band's most popular songs like Road Construction, Sorry, Forgot My Tie-Dyed T-Shirt and the rare track Dad Car, up until now heard only on the "Car Talk" show on National Public Radio. Bandleader Mike Starling and friends have brewed up a fun and funky roots-rock stew seasoned with a healthy dose of snark. Learn more at the Bean Hoy artist page.
