Digitalsale homepagebanner

Starting today, April 1, 2020 (aka Sub Pop’s 32nd anniversary), and running for 2 weeks, through April 15, 2020, we are having what we have only very recently begun calling the Sub Pop High Def at Low Stakes Sale!

What this means:

- All digital albums are currently 32% off!

- This sale starts April 1st and ends April 15th! Which, if we’re doing the math right, is two full weeks!

- 32% because it is our 32nd anniversary!

- This applies to all digital formats we sell: FLAC, ALAC and MP3 are, as ever, all the exact same price at the Sub Pop Mega Mart!

- All Sub Pop AND Hardly Art High Def digital albums are 32% off right g-d now!

- That’s 1% off for every year Sub Pop is old!

- This includes pre-orders!

- This excludes bundles!

Celebrate in place with us for our 32nd birthday!

Contradict current music industry sales trends!
(Be an Individual, Call Your Own Shots, March to the Tune of a Path Less Taken, and alllllll that jazz)!

Savor all of the relatively unsung advantages of buying digital albums!
(Like: We don’t have to ship them to you! And, you don’t have to wait for them to arrive in the mail and then disinfect them! They don’t warp! They do not require special shelving, nor do they get dusty! They’re super easy to deal with when you move! You get the picture, we think!)

And above all, please shop, buy at a significant discount, and then download and enjoy rich, delicious, lossless (or mp3 - your call) DIGITAL ALBUMS!!

Sun’s Shining, Guns Out

Blog futura

We here at the Sub Pop Record Company understand the importance of personal temperature awareness (PTA)–heat stroke is no joke, as they say–so that’s why we’re doing our part by taking a very successful (successful in terms of revenue for us) sweatshirt design, and fine tuning it a bit to make it available in the seasonable appropriate, sleeveless, tank top shirt-way. The now new-classic Sub Pop “Futura” design, is now available in a cranberry or blue tank for your summery needs. If you can’t stay inside this summer, don’t forget to liberally apply sunpaste, militantly hydrate, and most importantly, wear Sub Pop tank tops all summer long to avoid heat stroke, the silent bummer.

In Blue or Cranberry

New Ruby Suns Music Video + Sale!

It’s been what the kids call a hot minute since Ruby Sun’s criminally overlooked January, 2013 record Christopher came out, and with a brand new video for the song “Desert of Pop” having been surprise-turned in by the band, the record is back on our minds and on our collective office record platters. As a mini celebration of the new video, Ruby Suns records sale on the Sub Pop Mega Mart and iTunes! You can bundle all three of Sub Pop’s Ruby Suns CDs or LPs for just $30, or you can pick them up individually for just $10 apiece–that’s some appreciable savings!

Shop the Ruby Suns sale on SubPop.com or at iTunes.

On Spotify, Rdio, or Beats? (Re)Discover The Ruby Suns there!

The Records of the Future, On Sale Today

14052

Sub Pop’s third annual 20’s Plenty Holiday Sale is quickly approaching its end, and if you haven’t heard about it yet, you’re doing a remarkable job of ignoring us (kudos to you, sometimes I wish I could ignore us), because we’ve been pretty loud about the money that we are desperately trying to save you by convincing you that now’s the time to spend all of it at our online store. So, before your opportunity to magically turn your money into long-playing Sub Pop records at the greatly discounted rate of 20% off goes away for another year, we wanted to tell you about a pretty special fact: not only is EVERYTHING THAT WE SELL 20% OFF WHEN YOU SPEND $20 OR MORE, but all five of the 2014 Sub Pop records that we currently have available for pre-order are 20% off, too! Future records available at the sale price of today! Now, I’m not sure if you know how stock options work, but this is essentially what’s happening here. Invest like a CEO, pick up brand new records at an appreciable discount from Mogwai, The Notwist, Death Vessel, THUMPERS, and Dum Dum Girls, and shop the rest of our sale here.

As the subject of this post says, we’re having ourselves a holiday-style hiatus until January 6th, 2014 celebrating whatever it is we’re celebrating (mainly, just having time off). When we return, we’ll be getting online orders out, answering emails, voice mails, and snail mails as fast as we can, and generally looking forward to another year of some really, really (really!) good records.

All orders placed by Wednesday, December 18th are guaranteed to ship before we leave for the holidays. Any order placed after the 18th will ship out starting January 6th!

Happy holidays,
The loving staff of Sub Pop Records

PS: Don’t forget that all orders over $20 are 20% off until January 4th but remember that any order placed after December 18th will not ship until January 6th at the earliest!
