Barsuk Records ( ) is an independent record label based in Seattle, Washington, started and still managed by the members of the band This Busy Monster, Christopher Possanza and Josh Rosenfeld, who created the label in 1994 to release their band's material. Its logo is a drawing of a dog holding a record in its mouth.

The name of the label comes from the Russian word барсук [barˈsuk] "badger". However, the label is not named after a badger, as is noted in the Barsuk Records FAQ [2], but after Christopher Possanza and Jason Avinger's dog, a black Labrador. The dog can be heard barking in This Busy Monster's track "Song 69".
