“‘Only in Dreams,’ the second Dum Dum Girls album, seethes with a beautiful, raging confidence, louder and fuller than anything they’ve done before, and better than the onetime peers they’re leaving behind. These lush and reverb-thick songs are ambitious and pointed about subjects that often drag: leaving, wasting away, aching.” – New York Times (Only in Dreams album review, 2011)

September 13th Coming at You with Three New Releases

10395

September 13th is filthy with new Sub Pop releases of note. First up, we’ve got the new full-length from Portland’s Blitzen Trapper. It’s called American Goldwing, and it comes with a really great Blitzen Trapper keychain! We’ve also got new EPs from Memoryhouse and Mogwai! There are four new tracks on Mogwai’s Earth Division EP and Memoryhouse’s The Years EP goes all the way to five. All of these great new releases are available on CD or LP, so please feel free to place your orders now; operators are standing by (that’s not actually true).

Also of note!

Blitzen Trapper will be playing a G-D FREE in-store performance at the Queen Anne location of Easy Street Records here in Seattle tonight (Sept. 13th) at 7:00 pm!

New Music and Tour Dates from Memoryhouse

10133

On September 13, we, the people of Sub Pop Records, will release a fully re-recorded, remixed and remastered version of Memoryhouse’s The Years, adding two new tracks entitled “Modern, Normal” and “Quiet America.” While technically an expanded and improved reissue, this version of The Years will be the first time the EP has been made available on CD or LP. This is exciting. Also exciting: with the release of The Years the band will be touring the US as main support on a slew of dates with Peter Bjorn and John as well as The Radio Department (see below for a list of shows, with more dates to be announced soon.)

The band also has a new video for their song “Quiet America” which was directed by, and stars, Memoryhouse’s own Denise Nouvion, and was edited by Jamie Harley, who also happens to have directed Memoryhouse’s video for “Heirloom” as well as How to Dress Well’s “Decisions” video. We think this is all pretty swell. You can watch this filmic gem by checking out the band’s website.

STILL CORNERS AND MEMORYHOUSE: TWO EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED NEW BANDS WHO ARE NOW OFFICIALLY SIGNED TO SUB POP!

8742

We at Sub Pop Records are quite pleased with ourselves in announcing that both Still Corners and Memoryhouse have joined our ever-growing family. Both bands will be heading to SXSW this month, after which Still Corners will continue on with new label-mates, Papercuts, on their first-ever US Tour. A complete list of Still Corners and Memoryhouse tour dates is below!

Still Corners
From London, England, Still Corners write songs that are eerie and tremulous, echoing caverns of sound. Comprised of Tessa Murray (vocals), Greg Hughes (guitar and keys), Leon Dufficy (guitar), Luke Jarvis (bass), and Paul Mayhew (drums) the band self-released their debut full-length, Remember Pepper in June of 2008 with the 7" singles, “Endless Summer” and “Don’t Fall in Love” following in 2010. Still Corners are hard at work finishing their Sub Pop debut, which we hope to release in summer 2011. For more information on Still Corners please visit their artist page.

Memoryhouse
Memoryhouse, the duo of Evan Abeele and Denise Nouvion, is from Toronto in Ontario, Canada. Their music blends the contemporary with the forgotten, the traditional and the technological, the visual and the aural, within the sonographic landscape of dream pop. Their discography consists of a digital-only EP entitled The Years and two 7" singles, “Lately (Deuxième)” b/w “Lately (Teengirl Fantasy Natural Mix)” on Inflated Records and the “Caregiver” single on Suicide Squeeze Records. All three were released in 2010. Look for a new Memoryhouse release on Sub Pop before the end of 2011. For more information on Memoryhouse please visit their artist page.
