What people are saying about Father John Misty
“This warped, lovely album suggests that a true longtime partnership isn’t two people who love each other even for their flaws, but of two people accepting decay–their own and each other’s–and choosing to ride it out nonetheless.” - New York Times
 
“The artist born Josh Tillman aims for grandiosity in his Father John Misty disguise, and his second album for Sub Pop repeatedly reaches such heights. A musical genie bottle with the spirits of Phil Spector, Lee Hazlewood and Brian Wilson corked within, Tillman and co-producer Jonathan Wilson seem to revel in letting these sounds seep out and intermingle.” - Los Angeles Times
 
“His beloved Father John Misty debut was Fear Fun, issued in 2012. The new album, out now, is I Love You, Honeybear….and it is as good as, though quite different from, its predecessor.” - Wall Street Journal
 
I Love You, Honeybear, an album by turns passionate and disillusioned, tender and angry, so cynical it’s repulsive and so open hearted it hurts.” [8.8 / 10, “Best New Music”] - Pitchfork
 
“Upping the spectacle from Fear Fun his 2012 debut, I Love You, Honeybear is an autobiographical set about love, marriage and derangement that’s both ironic and empathic.” [4/5] - Rolling Stone
 
“If there’s a funnier, stranger and more touchingly bizarre album released this year, it will be a very good year indeed.” [4/5] -Billboard
 
“This is a gorgeous album.” [10/10] - Exclaim
 
“For all the layers of irony on I Love You, Honeybear, the biggest irony of all might be that such an ostensibly knotty and confusing album’s real strength lies in something as prosaic and transparent as its author’s ability to write a beautiful melody.” [5/5] - The Guardian
 
“Album of the Week” - Stereogum

Daughn Gibson’s ‘Carnation’ Out Now - Watch the New Video for “Daddy I Cut My Hair”

Daughn Gibson’s Carnation is available now on CD / LP / DL in North America from your friends in the music business, Sub Pop Records. Conveniently enough for fans and newcomers alike, a brand-new Daughn Gibson official video for “Daddy I Cut My Hair” is also available as of today and was directed by the talented Matt Amato

Carnation, featuring the highlights “Shatter You Through,” “Bled to Death,” “It Wants Everything,” and “Daddy I Cut My Hair,” was co-produced by Gibson and Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Tim Hecker), recorded at Avast Studios in Seattle, Washington and mastered by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering.
 
The new album also features guest appearances from composer/violinist to Eyvind Kang (string arrangements), renowned studio drummer Matt Chamberlain, as well as Gibson’s long-standing musical conspirator, Jim Elkington. Additional contributions include: Steve Moore (Piano, Trombone, Keyboards and Synths); Milky Burgess, Paul Wegman, and Jer Rouse (Guitars); Skerik (Saxophone); and Jay Kardong (Pedal Steel). Carnation is the follow up to Me Moan,  Daughn Gibson’s Sub Pop debut.  
 
North American purchases of Carnation are available through Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp. Fans who purchase the album from us at our MegaMart store will receive the Loser Edition on white, black and blue swirl colored vinyl (while supplies last only).
 

What people are saying about Daughn Gibson:
“Singular and unsettlingly sophisticated.” [8/10] - Uncut

Carnation, with hindsight in its favor, gives Gibson the ability to keep on stretching his narratives, but it also wisely pomades some of his wildest hairs. The country urges are tamped down to the occasional guitar line and qualities of Gibson’s singing voice, giving the music a chance to open up to breezier vistas. These are mostly pitched between Tangerine Dream’s ’80s material and soundtracks, Sylvian/Japan, Danny Elfman and ’80s radio pop groups like a-ha, a mixture of influences and ideas that’s remarkably compelling when set against such visceral tales…Across all three records, and on this one in particular, there’s a reach of ambition that never gets mired in artifice or inconsistencies; this is surprising, complex music that deals with stories difficult to tell outside the printed page. Gibson leads listeners through them on the rumble seat, without so much as a lap belt or handhold to keep us steady.” [“First Listen”] - NPR Music
 
“Another weirdly fitting edition to Gibson’s sonic smorgasboard.” - Time Out London
 
Carnation hears Gibson veering away from his earlier country influences and embracing “ambient textures,” creating an elegant, dark, and cinematic collection of songs…In addition to delivering brooding beats and eerie soundscapes, Gibson uses his deep, theatrical style of singing to explore serious themes like mental health (“Daddy I Cut My Hair”) and masculinity (“A Rope Ain’t Enough”), as well as the simpler things in life, like the moment an alarm clock wakes you from the peace of sleep on lead single “Shatter You Through” - Exclaim! 
 
“Gibson finally sounds the part.” [4/5] - MOJO
 
“Its brisk metropolitan midnight pop accented by eerie violin and honky-tonk guitar and topped off with Gibson’s death bellow. He spins a story about being jarred from peaceful sleep into dreadful waking life; it’s as odd as anything he’s committed to tape, but it’s also his most instantly appealing single yet.” [“Shatter You Through”, Carnation] - Stereogum
 
“Quite possibly his catchiest work to date, the titillating track is marked by groovy bass, twangy guitar, and Gibson’s rich baritone.” [“Shatter You Through”, Carnation] - Consequence of Sound
 
“A brisk, impressive new track with swift strings, tinkling piano keys, and a quick-paced Gibson demonstrating a keen grasp on pop’s best offerings…The future is here and now, and it’s on repeat.”
[“Shatter You Through”, Carnation] - FLOOD

Beach House’s ‘Depression Cherry’ Out August 28th

Bhdc
Beach House are set to release Depression Cherry, the band’s fifth album, on CD / LP / DL August 28th in North America on Sub Pop Records. The album will also be available in Europe from Bella Union and from Mistletone in Australia and New Zealand. Depression Cherry, featuring the highlights “Sparks,” “Space Song,” “PPP” and “Days of Candy,” was produced and recorded by the band and Chris Coady at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana.
 
Beach House will start their worldwide tour in support of Depression Cherry, beginning August 18th in Portland, ME at State Theatre and end their 2015 dates December 18th in San Francisco at the Fillmore. Please find a complete list of dates below.
 
Depression Cherry is now available for preorder in North America from the Sub Pop Mega Mart. LP and CD versions of the album will come packaged in a sumptuous red velvet sleeve. All customers who pre-order the LP version of Depression Cherry from megamart.subpop.com will receive the special, limited, clear vinyl Loser Edition (while supplies last). Additionally, there will be a new T-shirt design, available individually or as part of a bundle with purchase of the new record.
 Album w/ red velvet sleeve.
About Beach House:
 
Beach House is Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally. We have been a band for over a decade living and working in Baltimore, MD. Depression Cherry is our fifth full-length record. This record follows the release of our self-titled album in 2006, Devotion in 2008, Teen Dream in 2010, and Bloom in 2012. Depression Cherry was recorded at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana from November ’14 through January ’15. This time period crossed the anniversaries of both John Lennon’s and Roy Orbison’s death.
 
In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream andBloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.

Here are a few quotes that we feel relate to the feeling and themes of this record:

— “I’ll never be able to be here again. As the minutes slide by, I move on. The flow of time is something I cannot stop. I haven’t a choice. I go. One caravan has stopped, another starts up. There are people I have yet to meet, others I’ll never see again. People who are gone before you know it, people who are just passing through. Even as we exchange hellos, they seem to grow transparent. I must keep living with the flowing river before my eyes.” - from Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto
— “We inhabit a world in which the future promises endless possibilities and the past lies irretrievably behind us. The arrow of time… is the medium of creativity in terms of which life can be understood.” - fromThe Arrow of Time by Peter Coveney and Roger Highfield
— “Mostly it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things.” - from Parerga and Paralipomena by Arthur Schopenhauer
— “Hark, now hear the sailors cry, feel the air and see the sky, let your soul and spirit fly, into the mystic…
…when the fog horn blows, I want to hear it, I don’t have to fear it” - from “Into the Mystic” by Van Morrison

Here is the track listing with selected lyrics.

1. Levitation – “The branches of the trees, they will hang lower now, you will grow too quick, then you will get over it”
2. Sparks - “It’s a gift, taken from the lips, you live again”
3. Space Song - “What makes this fragile world go ‘round, were you ever lost, was she ever found?”
4. Beyond Love - “They take the simple things inside you and put nightmares in your hands”
5. 10:37 - “ Here she comes, all parts of everything, stars in the motherhand”
6. PPP - “Did you see it coming, it happened so fast, the timing was perfect, water on glass…”
7. Wildflower - “ What’s left you make something of it”
8. Bluebird - “I would not ever try to capture you”
9. Days of Candy - “I know it comes too soon, the universe is riding off with you…… I want to know you there, the universe is riding off with you.”

For us, Depression Cherry is a color, a place, a feeling, an energy… that describes the place you arrive as you move through the endlessly varied trips of existence…

The Helio Sequence’s s/t, 6th album available now worldwide

The Helio Sequence is out now on CD/LP/DL worldwide and can be purcahsed in fine record stores near you as well as online retailers such as Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp. Worth noting, however, is that while supplies last, customers who purchase the LP version of the album from megamart.subpop.com will receive the limited “Loser Edition” on yellow-colored vinyl.

Additionally, The Helio Sequence’s US tour  will resume on June 3rd in Boise, ID at Neurolux and will run through October 1st in Spokane, WA at INB Performing Arts Center. The Helio Sequence will be direct support for Death Cab For Cutie  on Sep. 30th & Oct. 1st . Get the complete list of tour dates below.


What people are saying about The Helio Sequence:

“The Helio Sequence has created a euphoric, career-defining album.” [9.2 / 10] - PASTE


“…The duo’s latest is an ambitious, smart, and memorable collection of crisply produced clean-channel rock that shows all the newcomers how it’s done.” [8/10] - FLOOD


“”Stoic Resemblance” matches harmonious psychedelic chorus with a brisk krautrock pulse.” - Stereogum

“”Stoic Resemblance” is among the most pop-friendly things the duo have put to tape. Of course, “pop-friendly” to The Helio Sequence takes the shape of more direct song structures and vocal hooks. Naturally, it’s all filtered through their signature kaleidoscopic filter, hitting a chord somewhere between gauzy and taut. At a tight three minutes, “Stoic Resemblance” shows The Helio Sequence at their most spontaneous and their most playful, which is not only a surprise turn from the studio-intense direction that’s long defined them with surprisingly fun results.” [Song of the Day] - KEXP

“It’s a hit of catchy goodness with a funky bassline with a chorus of “oh na na nas.” It’s a bonafide jam.” [“Stoic Resemblance”]  - KCRW

“A rager by comparison, rhythmically reminiscent of Beck…It’s great to find the Helio Sequence upping their game, and being a little less stoic.” [“Stoic Resemblance”]  - Buzzbands

No Fly List: Notes from Sub Pop’s Airport Store (May 2015)

Nofly 620x360

No Fly List: Notes from Sub Pop’s Airport Store, May 2015

What I Haven’t Learned After One Year at the Airport Store

After reading the general manager’s write-up of the airport store on our 1 year anniversary, I was naturally revolted by all of the praise and felt compelled to undercut any inflated expectations about our humble retail operation. Despite the label’s best efforts to indoctrinate me in all-things Sub Pop, and foster excellent customer-service skills amongst the retail staff, I still feel like I’m mostly fumbling my way around. So, without further ado, here are some things I still haven’t mastered after working for a year at the Sub Pop Airport store*:

  • Snappy comebacks to any of the following FAQs: 

                         I.         What is SUB POP?

                        II.         What does SUB POP stand for?

                       III.         Is that VINYL back there?

My best answers:

                         I.         Sub Pop is a record label that started in 1988, in Seattle, Washington. Fast forward 26 years, and many illicit ingested substances later, they got the harebrained idea to open a store in the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

                        II.         Sub Pop is an initialism for Superior Unique Bro-fessionals Pursuing Overwhelming Profits.

                       III.         No, those are wall calendars. All for the year 2015, but reusable in 2026!

  • Coherent music recommendations: Working at a record store in an airport means interacting with people from all over the world, with all different kinds of music tastes. On occasion, I am asked to help someone find music in our store that sounds like “viola-fusion,” “cabaret,” or “Dire Straits.” My answer for any and all requests is usually Goat. All roads in music lead to Goat.
  • Playing along when a customer decides to “stump the millennial sales clerk”: No, I don’t know the location of the Sub Pop recording studio, nor do I know the name of your best friend’s cousin’s neighbor who totally played bass in Soundgarden back in the day. Take your Mudhoney shirt and leave me alone!
  • Knowing what size t-shirt your child/spouse/sibling wears: It’s probably for the best that I don’t know intimate details about your family members who I’ve never met before. Just sayin’.
  • Reacting to all the enthusiasm in the store: The majority of people who visit the store (and are at least somewhat familiar with Sub Pop) are usually blown away and ecstatic to find our outpost at the airport. It is super gratifying/humbling/inspiring to see this response, and it often makes my face hurt.

*Let me reiterate that I’m speaking entirely about myself here. The rest of my colleagues are professionals who routinely show their expertise in the store, and I hope you interact with any one of them during your next visit.
