Those ever-industrious Shins have a new live EP up and available in the iTunes store today! Recorded earlier this year at the tremendously famous Record Plant in Hollywood, CA (where Vanilla Fudge recorded, duh), the EP is available here. To the best of our collective knowledge (which is, admittedly, maybe not saying much…), these songs mark the recorded Shins debut of Eric Fruit Bats Johnson.
Here’s the track list:
1. Phantom Limb
3. So Says I
4. Girl Sailor
5. Turn on Me
Starting now, the new Sub Pop Records iTunes Mini-Mart is up and running!
Assembled in this somewhat remote, yet painstakingly decorated corner of the iTunes Music Store, curious browsers will find 21 recently released and/or somewhat popular albums optimistically offered for purchase by Sub Pop Records. While the entire Sub Pop catalog numbers greater than 700 releases to date, and though we would argue that 1/2 to 2/3 of those releases are well worth purchasing or otherwise securing for yourself, for now this scintillating sampling will have to suffice.
Near as we can tell, there is no way to get to this section of the iTunes store, through the store itself. You can only get there via this link.
Should you wish to locate artists on the label not featured in the new Sub Pop Records iTunes Mini-Mart, here’s where you can do that (for the artists we’re currently working with):
The Album Leaf
Band of Horses
The Baptist Generals
Comets on Fire
The Helio Sequence
Iron and Wine
The Postal Service
It’s our hope that, in time, we’ll be able to regularly change what’s featured in our iTunes storefront, but this is a start anyway!
