THUMPERS, one of Sub Pop’s newest familial additions, have a debut record coming out in just a handful of days. The album track, “Unkinder (A Tougher Love)” has been out there for a little while now, but with it’s massively catchy sound and shimmering vibes, it hasn’t had a proper visual accompaniment until now. So, press play, and let your eyes and ears gorge upon the audio and visual feast that THUMPERS bring in the embedded player.
Galore is streaming in its entirety all week courtesy of the fine folks at NPR Music. Head on over there to hear what the rest of this triumph of a debut record has in store.
If you pre-order Galore from us here at
Subpop.com, you will receive a bonus CD with 4 extra tracks not on the
record, including a cover of a song by recent tourmates CHVRCHES, performed by THUMPERS! Customers who pre-order the LP will receive the limited, colored-vinyl “Loser Edition” of the album.
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. Today, we’re excessively pleased to be able to share the new album track, “Where Are You”, along with album and pre-order news with you, cherished blog reader.
Shrink Dust comes out on April 29th on CD, LP, and MP3, and if you pre-order from the Sub Pop Mega Mart, you’ll receive a set of limited-edition Chad VanGaalen art prints, which, if you’ve seen any of his music videos, you’ll know that you’re in for something very special (and totally weird). Speaking of limited, if you pick up LP from us,
you’ll receive the colored-vinyl, Loser Edition of the record. As is
the case with all limited-edition things, when they’re gone, they’re
gone, so order quickly!
We’d like to plant a flag on your torso and claim you as ours, or at the very least, sell you this very handsome, brand new Sub t-shirt.
Dum Dum Girls’ third full length, the from-start-to-finish astounding sonic experience, Too True, is officially on the shelves wherever fine records are sold, or more specifically right here. Take a listen to the album track “Rimbaud Eyes” in the embedded player.
The truly awesome fact that the Afghan Whigs are releasing their first record in 16 years is exciting enough for us to lose our proverbial shit over; the fact that we, Sub Pop Records, have the honor of putting it out is enough for us to lose our literal shit over. (Gross? Sure. True? Maybe.) With that said, mark your calendars for April 15th, 2014 as the day that The Afghan Whigs make a very welcome return into all of our lives with Do to the Beast, their first record in 16 years! More details will be on the way very soon, so check back in. Until then, rejoice, the prodigal sons have returned.
