Green River T-shirts Are a Go

5301

This is the one and only Green River t-shirt (that we’re aware of, at least) and it has been reissued on high-quality, 180-gram, American Apparel cotton (the gram thing isn’t true, but it helps an otherwise needy metaphor). The front of the shirt features the band and the back boasts a six-pack paired with the term, “Ride the Fucking Six-Pack”. So if you’re wearing it to school, you may need to turn it inside-out when you get off the bus.

Flight of the Conchords “In the Studio”

5299

The folks at HBO just put together an “In the Studio” video with Flight of the Conchords. And, it is well worth your time not only because of its candid glimpse of Jemaine and Bret’s artistic process, but also because it is an entertaining, and often funny, piece of promotional flimflam for the show, our forthcoming Flight of the Conchords album, and this thing we’re doing where we’re selling a new song from the show ea. Monday on iTunes.

You can and should watch it here!

I’ve got an awesome idea! Why don’t you show everyone you see just how much you love Blitzen Trapper by purchasing a t-shirt and then wearing it? Well, if you choose to comply with my really great idea, we have two brand new designs to choose from.

Vetiver’s Tight Knit Pre-order Comes With Free 7”

5295

While it’s true, you could wait until Tight Knit, the spectacular new album from Vetiver finds its way into your local record or appliance store, you should probably take advantage of the fact that we are giving away a free 7” single with pre-orders of the album through subpop.com. This is a “while supplies last” type deal, meaning that we will give away these singles until they are gone and then that’s it. Do this today, in other words. Vetiver’s Sub Pop debut will be released on February 17th on CD and LP (LP comes with a free digital download code, btw), either of which will arrive with the “Hey Baby Doll” 7”. And if, as I do, you like to be even further rewarded with free things for making intelligent purchases, you will be enthused to learn that we’ve got Vetiver-related stickers and a button for you as well. PLUS! Every pre-order will get access to a full album stream on our site all the way up until release date. So you don’t have to wait to hear the record! Go ahead, savvy consumer, buy Vetiver’s Tight Knit album from us now.
