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 or at iTunes.

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

The Records of the Future, On Sale Today


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.

Sub Pop dot com is closed for 2013


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!

The Sub Pop Loser Stocking!


You have likely noticed, savvy internet shopper, that we’re currently smack-dab in the midst of our annual “20’s Plenty Holiday Sale” here at, which gives you 20% off your entire purchase of $20 or more…

Starting now and in addition to that, we’re offering these brand new Loser-embroidered black fireplace stockings FREE with every order over $100 (after discounts & shipping fees) through December and while supplies last.

On the subject of supplies lasting or not…

Because these handsome stockings are available both as a free gift with orders over $100 (after discounts & shipping) and for sale on their own for $15, they will definitely sell out quickly! So, bear that in mind when considering your ownership options here. Snoozing may very well equate to losing.

Happy Holidays, Losers!
