Sub Pop Signs Mirel Wagner!

Mirel blog

Our roster grew today to officially include the wonderfully talented Finnish signer-songwriter Mirel Wagner. The music that she creates melds subversive lyricism touching on themes of love and death against a backdrop of spare and minimalist folk music. You may have heard Mirel Wagner’s self-titled debut, released in 2012 via Friendly Fire Recordings. That album, led by the singles and videos for “No Death” and “Joe,” earned her acclaim from the likes of NPR Music, New York Times, Time, The Guardian, PASTE, FILTER, Pitchfork, Stereogum, Vogue, USA Today, Gorilla Vs Bear, and more.  

Listen to “No Death” from her s/t, 2012 album to hear why we’re so pleased to welcome Mirel into the Sub Pop family. Stay tuned for more details about her Sub Pop debut this summer.

Watch THUMPERS’ Kaleidoscopic New Video for “Unkinder (A Tougher Love)”

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.

Chad VanGaalen Album + New Track!

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!
