SP20 Festival - Details


As you have hopefully already read elsewhere here on the Sub Pop Interweb Tendency, we’re 20 this year. And, we plan to make kind of a nuisance of ourselves about it. More so than usual, even.

To celebrate the label’s twentieth birthday, Sub Pop will release a series of re-issues starting with Mudhoney’s Superfuzz Bigmuff: Deluxe Edition (which, like their brand new album The Lucky Ones , comes out May 20, 2008), launch a limited run of the Sub Pop Singles Club (more on that soon-ish), and throw a series of over-the-top birthday parties for itself this summer.

Herewith the scoop on these birthday parties:

Tiny Vipers - On This Side


A galloping exploration through vocal beauty and continuously looming guitar work, Tiny Vipers’ On This Side is a wonderful tune for your late night summer drives over dark mountain roads.

Live webcast of Low with Wilco tonight, June 15th


Our friends in Low are out right now playing a string of shows with Wilco. They are naturally very happy to find themselves in such good company on this tour, and will undoubtedly be playing a great many songs from their recent album Drums and Guns. If you live in one of the cities along this tour route, you should, of course, go! And, if you don’t live in one of these cities, on the Wilco website this evening at 5pm pacific/8 pm eastern, you can see a live webcast of both bands’ shows from the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis, IN! Here’s where you can watch the webcast!

Hey Jerks!


I know this probably means nothing to you coming from me — a Sub Pop lackey, who’s job involves such unsavory tasks as marketing records, writing here, on the web site of the band’s label that I’m talking about — but this Low record is real, real good. So quit being a jerk, take what we say at face value for once, and just buy it.

Low - Breaker


This Dave Fridmann produced gem from Low’s Drums & Guns is dark, gloomy, sparce, and powerful while still managing to be my new favorite ringtone. Low are back and as morose as ever on this track, turning a song that consists almost solely of vocals, organ, and guitars into something that sticks in your head like superglue. Take a listen!
