FINALLY! Marika Hackman has North American dates for you in support of her highly anticipated album I’m Not Your Man, her forthcoming Sub Pop debut available June 2nd.
Tour begins July 29th in Los Angeles at the Bootleg Theatre and ends August 16th in Brooklyn at Baby’s All Right. Marika will co-headline these shows with fellow UK artists The Big Moon, who will act as her backing band for this trek (and are the studio musicians with whom she recorded I’m Not Your Man). The 14-city tour will also visit Chicago, Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Denver, Boston, Minneapolis, Seattle, and more. The Big Moon are currently supporting Love in the 4th Dimension, out now on Columbia Records. Tickets for these shows go on sale Friday, May 5th at 10am (local time). Dates + Links are below.
Marika Hackman’s I’m Not Your Man includes the highlights “Boyfriend,” [watch here], “My Lover Cindy” [listen here / watch live here], “Violet” and “Cigarette,” and will be released on CD / LP / DL / CS and is now available to preorder in North and South America from Sub Pop and Marika Hackman’s official website over here. LP preorders through megamart.subpop.com and select independent retailers will receive the Loser edition on green and orange swirled vinyl with a bonus 7” (while supplies last). There’s also a nifty new t-shirt design available to bundle with this release.
I’m Not Your Man is available in rest of the world via AMF Records.
There’s an open-ended nature to I’m Not Your Man: the discussions within, conversations on femininity, sex and sexual identity, millennial ennui, the pressures of living in a social media bubble and the perils of being young in a fast-paced industry. Says Marika, “The record’s all about female relationships, romance and breakdowns, but there’s also a dim worldview going on. I’m Not Your Man can either mean, ‘I’m not your man, I’m your woman’, or it can mean, ‘I’m not a part of this…’,” explains Marika. It’s a fiery statement from a songwriter who no longer wants to be shackled to limiting descriptions…To help channel this fervid female energy, Hackman recruited her best mates – London quartet The Big Moon - to play as her backing band. They all met at a gig once and an immediate friend crush ensued. “They really captured the soul of what it all meant to me and brought a lot of fun and creativity,” says Hackman. “A lot of messing about and cuddling.” There was no concern that bringing in a much-hyped band to play on a number of tracks would take the shine off her own project. “I just wanna make the right record and if that’s involving people who can fucking smash it then that’s what I’m gonna do. Bands coming together is so important, particularly for women [read more at Sub Pop].”

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fevershare
their new video for “Sick Bug,”
a stand-out from their freshly released Sub
Pop debut, ”The French Press” EP. The Joe White-sung rocker, with
its effortlessly infectious guitar riff, seems on its surface to be fairly
straightforward in theme, but there is tectonic movement beneath the song’s
accessible sheen. White explains: ”I
was reading Richard Flanagan’s Narrow Road To The Deep North and
the horror of their situation stayed with me for a long time. I wrote this
about how desperately someone could want the simplest of things. The triviality
of us dancing around on a tennis court is fully realized.” The video was
premiered earlier today on The FADER.
The band also recently came off of a successful run of shows at SXSW,
with even Jon Pareles of The New York Times naming Rolling Blackouts
C.F. as one of 12 notable acts to come out of the festival. The band continues
their tour of Australia and head to Europe in September, highlighted by two
sold out shows in London. (Dates and links are below.)
three-guitar front line — plucked, sustained and most often busily strummed —
gives this Australian band its brisk pacing. Topped with semi-spoken,
Dylan-tinged vocals and lyrics that switch between candor and drollery, its
music is like folk-rock wrapped around a post-punk armature.” - The New York Times
“The French Press” EP is available on vinyl, CD and of course digitally from Sub Pop via this here link, and in the bins of finer record stores the world over.
2017 tour schedule begins May 23rd with sold-out show at New York’s The Apollo Theatre
“Arabian Heights” is the driving new track from The Afghan Whigs’ forthcoming album, In Spades, which will be out in stores and on the airwaves May 5th. This new song exudes the gutbucket exoticism of Houses of the Holy and Physical Graffiti writ large, driven by drummer Patrick Keeler’s bravura, tribal cadences. Greg Dulli says of Keeler’s contribution, “Rick [Nelson, who engineered the album] got incredible drum sounds, and what Patrick does on that song is a master class in drumming.”
In further exciting news, The Afghan Whigs will be performing a sold out show at The Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY on Tuesday, May 23rd. “We are thrilled to be performing at The Apollo,” Dulli remarked. “So many of my heroes both musical and otherwise have graced the stage there and it will be our honor to do so as well.”
The Afghan Whigs have also announced their first set of dates in support of In Spades in Europe. The band will visit 17 countries this summer including performances at Primavera Sound and Northside Festival. Ed Harcourt will be supporting on all European headline shows. (See dates below.)
In Spades is now available for preorder on CD / 180 gram-LP / CS / DL from Sub Pop over here. The album, led by the single “Demon In Profile” and the aforementioned “Arabian Heights,” alongside standouts “Oriole,” “Copernicus,” and “Toy Automatic,” is the follow-up to the band’s internationally acclaimed Do to the Beast. In Spades, written and produced by Greg Dulli, was recorded in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Memphis and Joshua Tree.
LP pre-orders of In Spades will receive the “Loser” edition on 180-gram, white-chocolate vinyl (while supplies last). A new T-shirt design, along with cassette versions of The Afghan Whigs’ classic Sub Pop albums Up In It and Congregation, are now also available.

We’ve been bustling hard at the Airport Store in preparation for the 10-year anniversary of Sub Pop’s sister label, Hardly Art. To commemorate this special occasion, which coincides with National Poetry Month, I’ve decided some light verse is called for…
- Strangely revealing synth pop for your magical journey into the darkness.
It has been and continues to be a true honor representing all the local weirdos, punx, queers, poets, and female artists of Hardly Art at our store. We’re looking forward to what’s coming next*! The future is already someone’s dream.:)
Assistant Store Manager
*Speaking of what’s coming next… how ‘bout not one but TWO celebratory birthday shows, this coming May 18th and 19th at Seattle’s Chop Suey?! Details are here.
Now With More Spring 2017 Western U.S. and B.C. tour dates!
Time to wrap those ears around rising Seattle rapper Porter Ray’s ”Russian Roulette” (feat. Stas Thee Boss), a previously unreleased song recovered from a vault of tracks recorded during the Watercolor sessions. The cut features original production from B-Roc, with additional production from Vitamin D.
Uproxx premiered the song today, and had this to say, “Porter raps fast and loose over an experimental, smeary beat punctuated with woozy, psychedelic strings, narrating the kind of hookup that goes much farther than that first night. Stas comes in about halfway through to add a hook that’s as sensual as it is rhythmic, and the contrast of the two voices is part of what makes both of these songs from Ray so strong (see April 18th post).”

Having recently returned from SXSW Music Festival, Porter and crew have announced a string of upcoming dates, including an opening slot for Los Angeles-based MC Murs on May 2nd (in Bellingham at Wild Buffalo), and performances at Seattle’s Upstream and Sasquatch Music Festivals. (Scroll down for the full list of dates.)
Porter Ray’s Watercolor is now available on CD / 2xLP / DL / CASS from Sub Pop right over here, and in finer independent record stores the world over.
May 02 - Bellingham, WA - Wild Buffalo w/ Murs May 11 - Seattle, WA - Upstream Music Festival May 16 - Denver, CO - Cervantes - Otherside May 17 - Ft. Collins, CO - Hodi’s May 18 - Salt Lake City, UT - Kilby Court May 19 - Portland, OR - Hawthorne Theatre May 26 - Quincy, WA - Sasquatch Music Festival Jun. 02 - Vancouver, BC - Biltmore Cabaret
What “The People” are saying about Porter Ray:
“A star in the making.” [Watercolor] – Uncut
“A natural storyteller, Ray unleashed a series of vivid mixtape portraits of his locale’s druggy highs and lows that painted him as a new school Nas with the lyrical slickness of Roc Marciano. The street-wise intellect certainly lets his slightly off-pitched voice do most of the heavy lifting over the stuttering spacey synthetics, phased keys and warped Rhodes of B-Roc’s atmospheric production.” [Watercolor, 4/5] – MOJO
“As a rapper, Porter’s storytelling skills drive his lyrical content. He tries to paint pictures, never sounding over excited or too energetic, opting for beats which create unique moods….with his effortlessly smooth tone and considered lyricism, Porter carries himself with striking presence and wisdom.” [Watercolor] - Crack Magazine
“Ray is Seattle to the bone, continuing the tradition of Sea-Town rappers with malleable flows and unorthodox sounds that bend along with them….The first taste of his album is a posse cut of sorts featuring ShabazzPalaces, Palaceer, and Castro. They all spit complicated rhyme schemes over a hollowed-out soundscape with dry 808 drums and shimmering, space-age synths reminiscent of THEESatisfaction.” [“Sacred Geometry”] –Stereogum
“Seattle rapper Porter Ray shares another hazy and seductive gem from his debut…“Arithmetic” showcases Porter’s golden voice and effortlessly vivid flow over a dreamy, immersively narcotic beat, elevated by spectral siren calls from the great StasThee Boss (formerly of THEESatisfaction) and anchored by a crucial assist from revered Seattle MC Infinite.” [“Arithmetic”] - Gorilla vs Bear
“On the first track from the Seattle native’s forthcoming Watercolor, Porter leads the song with melodic cadences and descriptive verses. Here, he and his collaborators all highlight the narratives that make up this holy equation.” [“Sacred Geometry”] - The FADER
