Under terms of the agreement, Matador will continue to release recordings through independent channels as well.

The highly sought-after Matador has released recordings by such bands as Pavement, Superchunk and Teenage Fanclub, among others.

Matador label head Gerard Cosloy said the deal allowed his label to maintain creative autonomy.
