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.

Unsanitary love


Wherein Randy (No Age, Los Angeles, affectionate) attempts/begins/pretends to lick the eyeball of Sean (Pissed Jeans, Philadelphia, obliging, also affectionate).

That is all.

Pissed Jeans on MTVu?


The excellent video for Pissed Jeans also "very excellent song I’ve Still Got You (Ice Cream) ": has, a little bizarrely, we’ll admit, been nominated as a “Freshmen” contender to be added into rotation on MTVu.

Go figure!

You should also go vote! The voting begins Monday, January 21st at 11am EST HERE and will run for a week.

Don’t let us down. Don’t let Pissed Jeans down. And, most of all, don’t let yourself down. Demand Pissed Jeans on MTVu!!

Suggestions from a Professional


I’ve been scratching my head for weeks now trying to figure out the next feature for the Sub Pop Online Shop and then just yesterday it dawned on me — why not ask Andy K, Head of Sales and Other Stuff, to name his TOP 5 RECORDS in the Sub Pop Shop? I mean, he knows sales. He is sales, for chrissakes! So, without further ado, let’s hear from Andy K, Sales Professional and Lover of Music.

Pissed JeansHope for Men
“This is heavy, killer, and out now. Get it now, twerp.”

Comets on FireAvatar
“One word — fucking badass psychedelic acid trip.”

Jakob OlaussonMoonlight Farm CD/LP

SebadohSmash Your Head on the Punk Rock
“This one’s a classic. Don’t make me stop this car!!”

The MonkeywrenchClean as a Brokedick Dog
“You know I eat lunch with Mark Arm almost every day, right?”

Now, go out there and make Andy proud!

The Seattle Times said in 2004 that “Few things say summer in the Northwest like the image of downy youngsters with laptops chaining themselves to old-growth trees.” Salty’s Seafood Restaurant’s website proclaims that “Summer in the Northwest brings sunny, warm weather and long days with star-studded evenings.” While neither of these generalized statements speak the whole truth about how awesome June is here, it goes without saying that we’re all so psyched, we’re practically crapping our pants. Allentown, PA’s Pissed Jeans know all about being psyched—their monumental new full-length, Hope for Men, is out on June 5th. The Austin Chronicle’s right-on description:

“Over massive Jesus Lizard-y guitar riffs, oft-shirtless singer Matt Korvette shouts about his “fantasy world,” where he’s a “special guy” who eats pizza and watches videos.”

Jennifer Gentle know about being psyched, too, but in a different, psychedelic sort of way. Their intense opus The Midnight Room is out June 19th, and multi-instrumentalist Marco Fasolo created the whole thing in his creepy (aka famous for its previous owner’s suicide by rifle) Ectoplasmic Studio, which is a house situated in the foggy plains of Northern Italy. It’s got distinctively Italian melodies, a primitive rock influence, and heaps of bizarro color.

Also, new in ye olde Sub Poppe Shoppe: a new Thermals 7" for A Pillar of Salt!

Basically, get ready for a sweet, sweet summer, losers!
