We, the people who make Sub Pop Records run (it’s a filthy, filthy job), are feeling very fortunate to be able to say that on February 14th, we are releasing Shearwater’s Sub Pop debut, Animal Joy, on CD and LP. As we often like to do, we shower those who pre-order records through the Sub Pop webstore with modestly lavish gifts, and in the case of Animal Joy, things will be no different. If you pre-order the record, you’ll receive instant access to download five exclusive demos from the forthcoming record, AND we’ll donate $2 from the purchase to the Audubon Society on behalf of Shearwater! That’s a lot of goodwill moving around, and we want you to get in on the action. Also, if you pre-order the LP, you’ll receive the limited “Loser Edition”, colored vinyl version of the record—in this case, a lovely blood red. Oh, and stickers!
For those of us who preordered as soon as it became available on your site (ie, before the demo downloads and donation were mentioned), will we still get these things?
That was incredibly badly worded, but I fear my brain has seized up with work…
I tried to pre-order this over the weekend and got an error. The order is showing up on my account and says “problem” but I can’t view it. I tried calling and emailing…no response. If someone sees this, can you let me know who I can contact to get this straightened out? Thanks.
And, as if by magic, the things have arrived! Cheers guys!
Excellence by association
I’ve always like Shearwater. Now I love them. Why? Because now they’re on Sub Pop. The label that seems to bring out the best in us. “Animal Joy” is a formidable label debut, and my “best of 2012 so far” selection. Killer, from start to end.
