Deplorable Sounds is the digital and limited release record label founded by N.E. Hertzberg to be a home to his solo and side project endeavors. Founded in 2013, Deplorable Sounds has released 17 albums for free digitally or on limited cassette tape. Many of these projects were simple one-offs with friends (Bleak, Fertility, etc.) or one-man-band ideas that would not expand into the live world, and thus, not necessarily require an independent Bandcamp page. Deplorable Sounds continues to release mostly N.E. Hertzberg solo albums or experimental tapes which may not be suitable or proper releases for other labels.
