Papercuts are set to release their Sub Pop debut, Fading Parade On March 1st 2011. In anticipation of our first official date with Papercuts, we here at Sub Pop have decided to share the love with a whole lotta Papercuts-related offerings . First off, the 7" for “Do What You Will” comes out today, February 1st! We hope you might remember that we gave out a free download of that A-side last month and our continued hope is that you’ll like that song enough to add the single your 7" collection. By the way, you can order that 7" “Do What You Will” single here.

While we are in the sharing-the-love kind of mood, we’re also presenting 2 new free MP3 downloads as of today; the exclusive non-album track “UFO” and the gorgeous first track off of Fading Parade, “Do You Really Wanna Know”. These songs are currently only available now via the Papercuts mailing list and you can sign up for that list on their artist page or in the handy little widget below.

We also happen to have a brand new video in today and we posted it above so be sure and watch this recent performance of “Do You Really Wanna Know” that was shot in San Francisco by our friends at YoursTruly. We have another really great performance from this show that we’ll be posting soon too, so be on the lookout for that as well.

You say you still want more exclusive music from Papercuts? Well then, you should pre-order Fading Parade via because you will receive a Sub Pop CDR of bonus material with 3 brand spanking new songs, made for you, with love. You can order that one here

Before we go, one more important bit of news: Papercuts have also just announced a headline tour beginning on March 12th in San Diego ending on April 9th in their hometown of San Francisco! The band will be playing a handful of dates this month with fellow label-mates and friends, Beach House. See their tour page for a full list of dates.

Be sure and check out updates from Papercuts on their Facebook page and also look to their artist page on for anything you might’ve missed.

Behind the Music Video! No Age’s “Fever Dreaming”

No Age just came out with a really great new video for their song “Fever Dreaming” (also conveniently posted below). Not only is the video really, very great but, unsurprisingly, so too is the director behind it, Patrick Daughters. For a little look at how some of this greatness came to be, check out this behind-the-scenes footage that was put together to help answer the age-old question: “How the hell did they do that?”
