Today marks the release of Goat’s Dreambuilding on the Sub Pop Record label. Though just a single, we’re proud to spread the mystical power of Goat all over North America with the double-A-sided “Dreambuilding”/“Stonegoat” 7". This is Goat’s first North American release, and it comes hot on the heels of 2012’s critically-acclaimed, import-only psychedelic opus, World Music.

Pick it up here.

Baptist Generals ‘Jackleg Devotional to the Heart’ + Condiminium Single Out Today

The Sub Pop warehouse has seen its share of hustle (not to mention bustle) this week as we’ve been shipping Baptist Generals’ first full length in a decade as well as a 7" single from St. Paul, Minnesota’s hardcore punk, mutated, and art-damaged heaviness that is the band Condominium.

Watch the tragic video for the Baptist Generals’s “Dog That Bit You” in the handy player above, and check out “Carl”, the filthy and oddly wondrous a-side from the new Condominium single here.

Pick up Jackleg Devotional to the Heart here.

And the new Condominium 7" single right here.

New Music from Daughn Gibson

July 9th, 2013, the birth date of Daughn Gibson’s Sub Pop debut and the long-awaited follow-up to last year’s brilliant All Hell. Me Moan, is approaching quickly. We’ve already given you “The Sound of Law”, the first track off the new record, and with today comes “You Don’t Fade”, which Pitchfork called “an easy lope with pitch-screwed vocal samples and frissons of guitar and bass”. So do yourself a favor and download the track, listen to it while on a nice, easy lope, and we guarantee you’ll get a frisson of excitement about the upcoming release date for Me Moan.

No Age’s ‘An Object’ Out August 20th


This morning, a small handful of press outlets received news of a new No Age record, An Object, via a small box, entirely created by No Age themselves—from the printing on the cover, right down to the music contained on An Object. The follow up to 2010’s groundbreaking Everything In Between finds the band on fertile ground creating something both completely different to anything they’ve done before, yet distinctly No Age. An Object comes out on Sub Pop on August 20th, and just like the promotional pieces the band sent out to announce An Object, No Age has performed, recorded, produced, and prepared and assembled the entirety of the physical packaging of An Object, including jackets, inserts, and labels, taking on the roll of manufacturer, artist, and musician until the roles trip on themselves and individual parts lose their distinct meanings, demanding to be considered as a whole.

The takeaway from this message, there’s a new record from No Age, it’s called An Object, it comes out on August 20th, and they’ve created something in An Object worthy of much anticipation.

Still Corners


Still Corners’ follow up to their 2011 debut record, Creatures of an Hour, came out today. It’s called Strange Pleasures, and the lushness and warmth of the sound that emanates from the record make for the perfect sonic companion for the seasonal transition into what we in these parts call “the good living” months.

We have a small handful of the limited, colored-vinyl LOSER Editions left for people who order the LP from us. This will also be available in select independent music retailers (call yours for availability).

Listen to the entirety of Strange Pleasures in the handy player accompanying this post.

Order Strange Pleasures here.
