This thing is on: the 2019 Holiday Sale at the Sub Pop Mega Mart is fully activated!

Dailydeals banner 1920x1080

As required by what we can only assume must by some kind of law, we at Sub Pop Records are having a big ol’ sale starting on the Friday after Thanksgiving (aka TODAY, Nov. 29, 2019). This year’s Holiday Sale at the Sub Pop Mega Mart works a little differently, and we’re pretty excited about it. We hope you will be, too.

Here’s how it works…

Every day, for 15 days, starting on Friday, Nov. 29 and ending on Friday, December 13, we will be offering what we really hope is meaningfully discounted sale pricing on a different item or related group of items, FOR ONE DAY ONLY. And, during this same period of time, we will be offering FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING on any order of $50 or more! That’s 15 days of different deals, with free domestic shipping on orders over $50! Which, naturally, we have decided to refer to as: Sub Pop’s 2019 Holiday Daily Deal Days Doozy.

And, the first of our daily deal day deals really is a doozy…

On Friday, November 29, we’re offering 25% off of every format of every 2019 release on Sub Pop or Hardly Art! If, for instance, you’d like to pick up Titanic Rising by Weyes Blood, Orville Peck’s Pony, Chastity Belt’s new, self-titled album, or the recently Grammy nominated album Years to Burn from Calexico and Iron & Wine, or ANY OTHER 2019 RELEASE, now’s the time, friend. Any (or even ALL!) of these albums would make excellent gifts (and subtly demonstrate your excellent taste).

And that’s just the first daily deal. New day, new deal. Check back often! Please!

Then, starting Dec. 14 and continuing on until January 6, 2020 we will be offering 20% off a specially selected selection of stuff, for your ongoing holiday shopping delight!

It’s a two-parter this year, gang. And, you can always find out what’s currently on sale here: megamart.subpop.com/holiday_sale.

Please note the following…

If there are any pre-order items in your cart at checkout, your entire order will not ship until the shipping date of the furthest out pre-order. That means your order will not ship until after the first of the year, and you will not receive any part of your order in time for the holidays. The solution to this is: place multiple orders.

And, all orders placed by December 17th are guaranteed to ship out before we close up shop for the year, so get your orders in early and often.  Conversely, any orders placed between December 18th and January 5th will not ship out until after we are back at it in the new year on Jan. 6th, 2020.

Happy Holidays, one and all!

Love, Sub Pop

Mudhoney’s Morning in America is a new 7-song EP of tracks recorded during the sessions for Digital Garbage, their acclaimed album of 2018 (“…an astute, politically relevant and commendably fired-up garage punk belter of an LP,” – The Quietus). The tracks include “Let’s Kill Yourself Live Again” (an alternate version of the Digital Garbage stand-out “Kill Yourself Live,” and the bonus track for the Japanese CD version of that album), “One Bad Actor” (a new version of Mudhoney’s track on the limited-edition, and now very sold-out, SPF30 split 7” single w Hot Snakes), album outtakes “Snake Oil Charmer,” “Morning in America” and “Creeps Are Everywhere,” plus “Ensam I Natt” (“So Lonely Tonight,” a Leather Nun cover) and “Vortex of Lies” from a very limited, European tour 7”.

You can (and should) stream Mudhoney’s Morning in America right now on YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music and Bandcamp.
 
Morning in America has been released on 12” vinyl and through digital services, and is available from the Sub Pop Mega Mart now. The limited Loser Edition is on white vinyl marbled with black is available from megamart.subpop.com and select independent retailers in North America, UK and Europe (the Loser Ed is silver vinyl in the UK/EU), while supplies last.

Sub Pop’s Legendary Singles Club Volume 5 Now Open For Subscriptions

Singlesclub blogheader

The 2020-2021 round of Singles Club will include Father John Misty, Ohmme, Sumac and more.

Subscribe here: u.subpop.com/SinglesClub5

The Sub Pop Singles Club is back for another round! We are now taking subscriptions for the fifth volume of our storied vinyl 7” subscription service. Join now to get 12 limited-edition, great-sounding, great-looking little records delivered straight to your mailbox between April 2020 and February 2021.

Just what the heck is this so-called “club,” you ask? Well, the short version is that intermittently, since 1988, Sub Pop has roped artists into letting us release a couple of their songs on the 7” vinyl format, resulting in releases by Nirvana, Soundgarden, L7, The White Stripes, Bright Eyes, and a ton more. We then shipped these singles to people who had the forethought to subscribe, in advance, to the Singles Club. Many of these singles have since become very rare and sought-after. (Ok, so a few haven’t, but who’s counting?) Most recently, we somehow pulled off the Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 4, running from April 2019-February 2020 (and totally closed for subscriptions since February, so don’t ask!). You can hear many of the past Singles Club releases via the Sub Pop Singles Club Playlist.

The Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 5 will keep this fine tradition of excellent new music and logistical headaches going for yet another year. These singles are one-time, limited pressings with exclusive tracks by each artist. Subscribe now or regret later!

What do you get with a subscription?
  • Approximately 24 amazing, exclusive songs by your new favorite musicians! Artists confirmed so far include Father John MistyOhmmeClarke and the HimselfsL.O.T.I.O.N. Multinational CorporationTEKE::TEKESumac, and Y La Bamba. More TBA!
  • 12 vinyl 7” singles with artful packaging lovingly designed by the musicians and the Sub Pop art department!
  • A nice box to store them all in!
  • An official Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 5 membership card!
  • Coolness! Conversation pieces! Things to have and hold over people who don’t have them! Relatives and acquaintances who are surprised to find out they still make those things! And other side-effects of record collecting!
How much? This much:
$130 for the U.S.
$170 for Canada
$185 for Mexico
$195 for the rest of the world.
Shipping is included in each of those prices.
 
If you’re the gift-giving type, know that if you subscribe by December 16th we will have the membership card in the mail to you before we close for the holidays (which should - no guarantees - get it to addresses in the United States by Christmas).
 
Answers to frequently (and often aggressively) asked questions:
  • Subscribing is the only way to get the physical 7”s. They will not be available in stores.
  • You can subscribe from anywhere in the world.
  • You can purchase a subscription as a gift – simply enter the recipient’s name and address in the delivery address fields for your order.
  • Each single will be available for streaming and digital purchase two weeks after that single ships. But by then you will no longer be able to subscribe to the vinyl version. You should do that part now.
  • Subscriptions are exempt from any Mega Mart sale discounts.
  • You can buy a subscription in the same order as other items you wish to purchase from us. We will ship the rest of your order as soon as possible, but no Singles Club 7”s will ship until April 2020, when you’ll get the first two, with successive singles to follow in pairs every other month thereafter. (We are shipping two singles at a time, every other month, because shipping is expensive and we want this subscription to be relatively affordable.)
If you need to change your address at any point during your subscription, please email websales@subpop.com.
