A very heartfelt congratulations to Ben Bridwell and Elizabeth McCann on the arrival of their really amazingly adorable daughter Annabelle! And, welcome Annabelle!
If, like us, you cannot help but admire Annabelle’s impeccable sartorial style and would like to similarly attire the very youngsters in your life, you can purchase a Sub Pop onesie of your very own right here.
The fine folks over at vh1.com and vh1classic.com went above and beyond and have provided us with our best birthday present yet—a Sub Pop Turns 20 celebration with over 50 Sub Pop videos from the dawn of time til now. Check it out—there’s Tad, SDRE, Mudhoney, Band of Horses, The Shins, CSS, and more!
On March 18th, Sub Pop will be releasing Only as the Day Is Long, our first record with Sera Cahoone. Sera played in Carissa’s Wierd and played drums on the Band of Horses album Everything All the Time, and her self-titled, self-released debut record was one of our favorites of 2006. Not that we really need to sweeten this pot, but if you pre-order the new CD by March 18th, we’ll take 2 bucks off our already strikingly low price of $12, thereby only charging you, esteemed and intelligent consumer, a measly $10. Plus, for you, there will be stickers and, oh yes, there will be buttons!
Pre-order right here.
Listen to Sera Cahoone here.
Hey all you Horses-Heads! What? Not cool? Maybe I’ll try to come up with a more flattering nickname for Band of Horses fans. Or better yet, maybe no nickname at all. Anyway, I thought you should know about a brand new Band of Horses seven inch single featuring No One’s Gonna Love You on the a-side and a cover of Am I a Good Man, by Them Two, on the b-side, recorded live for KEXP.
These will go pretty quick, so pick one up right here
I kinda hate year the end round-ups and trite “best of” lists that will make up the rest of the journalistic year, but I think it’s a practice steeped in deep tradition and I guess it’s somewhat helpful, so here’s a little bit about what went down at Sub Pop in the past months. 2007 brought us follow up records from old faves The Shins, Low, Jennifer Gentle, Iron and Wine, Band of Horses, Kinski, and Mudhoney as well as a whole bunch of new or new-to-us bands such as Loney Dear, Dntel, Patton Oswalt, Handsome Furs, Pissed Jeans, Tiny Vipers, flight of the conchords, and The Go! Team. We put out some seven inch singles, too, from bands like Wooden Shjips, Kelley Stoltz, and The Thermals. Our little buds at Hardly Art have successfully made it through their first year with releases from Arthur & Yu and Le Loup and we couldn’t be prouder. More proud. Whatever.
You know what, though? Next year is going to be totally insane as it will be Sub Pop’s Twentieth Anniversary(!) and we’re going to go totally nuts celebrating. Keep your eyes peeled for special releases, collector junk, and worldwide partying in the streets.
We have a trillion videos up for Subterranean’s Best of 2007 on MTV2 and you would be a bad citizen if you did not go HERE and cast a vote or two for The Shins, Band of Horses, CSS, DNTEL, Handsome Furs, The Thermals, and The Go! Team. Get to it! Please and thank you.
