New and Offensive clipping. Video + Loser Edition News

Sub Pop noise mongers, clipping., just delivered their first music video for this record label for the song “Work Work”, and I have to say, we are APPALLED. It features copious amounts of violence and a plethora of swears, not to mention A TON of innuendo and refer references. FILTHY. If you’re into that sort of trash, then you’ll LOVE CLPPNG, the trio’s debut record, out June 10th on this filthy record label.

Sub Pop Signs Mirel Wagner!

Mirel blog

Our roster grew today to officially include the wonderfully talented Finnish signer-songwriter Mirel Wagner. The music that she creates melds subversive lyricism touching on themes of love and death against a backdrop of spare and minimalist folk music. You may have heard Mirel Wagner’s self-titled debut, released in 2012 via Friendly Fire Recordings. That album, led by the singles and videos for “No Death” and “Joe,” earned her acclaim from the likes of NPR Music, New York Times, Time, The Guardian, PASTE, FILTER, Pitchfork, Stereogum, Vogue, USA Today, Gorilla Vs Bear, and more.  

Listen to “No Death” from her s/t, 2012 album to hear why we’re so pleased to welcome Mirel into the Sub Pop family. Stay tuned for more details about her Sub Pop debut this summer.

As some of Chad VanGaalen’s biggest fans, news of new music from that guy always perks the collective ears of the employees of Sub Pop, and his new album, Shrink Dust, was no exception.

You’re Looking at a New & Improved, Top-of-the-Line, 2014 Website

Blog new site edited 2

While 2007 was inarguably a great vintage for websites, SubPop.com was getting a little, [ahem], dated (our search function never actually “searched” our website as much as it made it “crash”). So a while back, we set a date of January 3rd, 2013 to launch a brand new, redesigned SubPop.com. And only just one full calendar year after our self-imposed deadline, we are extraordinarily proud to give you www.SubPop.com! Please think of this iteration of our online home as your hub for news and information regarding Sub Pop artists as well as the Sub Pop Mega Mart as the place to go for the records, t-shirts, and other highly valuable stuff that we are forever (and ever) trying to sell you. Thanks so much for visiting our new place online, you’re welcome back anytime.
