In very remarkable news, Sub Pop artists, Mudhoney, J Mascis (J’s flight was unfortunately delayed and he will not be able to perform today) and Sera Cahoone are playing ON TOP of Seattle’s iconic Space Needle tomorrow, July 11th accompanying a remote broadcast by our dear friends at KEXP. From 12-5:30PM tomorrow, KEXP DJs John Richards and Kevin Cole will broadcast live from the Space Needle’s observation deck, jamming some Sub Pop tunes and generally kicking off the Sub Pop Silver Jubilee weekend with the rare sort of aplomb that posting up for the day on top of the Space Needle can bring.
The entire event will culminate in the first-ever live music performances from atop the Space Needle featuring solo sets from J Mascis and Sera Cahoone, and a fully plugged-in performance from Mudhoney. You will be able to live-stream video and audio from the broadcast via KEXP.orgall day tomorrowTODAY!
There will also be interview highlights from label founder Bruce Pavitt, Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil, photographer Charles Peterson, and legendary producer Jack Endino. Also, I’m told that there will be surprises.

It’s been quite a spell since the last Sera Cahoone album. And, by “a spell,” we mean “over 4 years.” In part, this is why news of Deer Creek Canyon, Sera’s new full-length, which comes out September 25th, was cause for great hoopla and carrying-on for us here at Sub Pop HQ. But more than that, we are excited because this new Sera Cahoone record is also very, very good. (Here’s where you can listen to the title track to Deer Creek Canyon as partial proof!) In other exceptionally good news: we have two more Sera Cahoone songs, which are not on Deer Creek Canyon, and which we have caused to be professionally etched onto a limited number of pieces of 7" vinyl. We are giving these 7” singles away to the first 250 people who pre-order Deer Creek Canyon on CD or LP. You should also be aware that there is a limited, colored-vinyl version of the LP. This is the Loser Edition of Dear Creek Canyon. If you’re among the first 250 people to pre-order the vinyl LP, you’ll get this limited, Loser Edition version of Deer Creek Canyon on colored vinyl.
Again, both the bonus seven inch and the Loser Edition vinyl are limited, so order now to ensure your personal obtainment of these fine things. A few more notes! Once you place your pre-order, you’ll receive a link to stream the record in its entirety. And, included with your order, there will be stickers; we’re forever sending you stickers.
Today we have for you the brand new video trailer you might have noticed above which features the lovely Sera Cahoone and makes mention of not only her upcoming 9/25/12 album, Deer Creek Canyon, but also features some music off said album. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
We also hope that you take note that in addition to this new video clip, as of today you can also find the free Sera Cahoone download for “Naked” off Deer Creek Canyon on Sub Pop’s SoundCloud Page as well as on services like Rdio and Spotify as well as iTunes.
If you like what you’ve seen and heard thus far, we suspect you might be pleased to know that Sera’s Deer Creek Canyon is now available for pre-order and you can find her album at places like Amazon and itunes as well as right here on subpop.com, where we just happen to be offering Sub Pop customers (who order from us before street date) a limited edition 7" featuring two non-album tracks,“Dog Song” by Sera Cahoone, and “I Like to Fuck” by Toby and Skeeter (Featuring Sera Cahoone and Jason Kardong). Also, customers who pre-order the album from subpop.com on vinyl LP will receive the limited, colored-vinyl Loser Edition of Deer Creek Canyon. It’s worth mentioning again that both of these subpop.com pre-order offers are limited and available only while supplies last, so order quick from subpop.com if these sound to your liking.
Four years after releasing her widely acclaimed Sub Pop debut Only as the Day Is Long, Sera Cahoone is back, and readying the release of her third solo effort, Deer Creek Canyon, scheduled for September 25th, 2012. The 12-track album was co-produced by Cahoone and Thom Monahan (Beachwood Sparks, Vetiver) at Bear Creek Studios. The album features the lead single, “Naked,” (conveniently available for download in the player located above) alongside other album standouts, “Worry All Your Life,” and “And We Still Move”.
Titled for the Colorado canyon where she came of age, where her mother still lives, Deer Creek Canyon ruminates on the gravitational pull of home and delves deeper and with a voice remarkably stronger than on Sera’s previous albums. Read more about Sera and Deer Creek Canyon here.
