Poor Moon’s Self-Titled Debut Out August 28th


August 28th isn’t just another one of the 366 days that comprise 2012 (it’s a leap year). More significantly, it’s the day we at Sub Pop are releasing Poor Moon’s self-titled, debut full-length, very practically entitled Poor Moon. Wonderful and patient people reading this post, this is a day to be celebrated! And what better way to celebrate than by listening to your own copy of what will certainly prove to be one of this leap year’s greatest sonic achievements?

If you pre-order Poor Moon (the aforementioned sonic achievement) on CD or LP from, you’ll also receive a limited-edition Poor Moon seven-inch single featuring “Fortune Divine” (which is not on the Poor Moon album), and a demo version of the album standout “Holiday.” Another limited-edition thing to note: if you buy the vinyl LP from us, you will, in all likelihood, receive the Loser Edition version of Poor Moon, a gold colored-vinyl version of the record.

Please note: Both the seven-inch and the Loser Edition LP are very limited and will go fast (hence the “in all likelihood” business above), so order quickly. The following additional facts are also worth your consideration: the LP comes with a digital download code; you will receive Poor Moon and Poor Moon-related stickers (whether you like it or not); and you will also receive a link to stream the record in its entirety so you don’t have to wait until August 28th to listen to the album.

Pre-order Poor Moon

There are still a small handful of Poor Moon’s limited, colored-vinyl, Loser Edition LPs left to the lucky few who order soon!
