A few months ago, we shared the wonderful fact that we can officially call the London-based singer/songwriter, Lyla Foy (formerly WALL), part of the Sub Pop family. Today, we return with more fantastic news about Lyla, or more specifically, her debut record, Mirrors the Sky. The fantastic news goes a little like this: on March 18th, Lyla Foy’s beautiful full-length debut will be available wherever fine music is sold.
Pre-orders of Mirrors the Sky via iTunes will receive a download of the album track “Feather Tongue” immediately. LP pre-orders through the Sub Pop Mega Mart will receive the limited, colored-vinyl, Loser Edition and all pre-orders will get a complimentary Lyla Foy tote bag. And as is the case with all things of a limited nature, when the Loser Edition and Lyla Foy tote bags are gone, they’re gone. Which is to say, this is a classic while-supplies-last scenario.
Hear the Mirrors the Sky track, “Feather Tongue”, in the embedded player now.
Did you know that we have a stripped down version of the Sub Pop website for your mobile device? We’ll admit to building it with an eye toward the iPhone, but it should work well with the Google phone and a Blackberry running Opera as well.
No, we’ve neither been ejected into space (where everyone knows the wifi reception is horrible) nor have we had our typing keyboards consumed by the resident collie. We’ve just been really bad at posting for the past few months. But we’re here, and finally ready to get back to doing what we’re not-quite-so-good at: keeping the New Media blog up-to-date!
Lots of things have been going this summer, not the least of which was our introduction of salable MP3 downloads. But I’m getting ahead of myself—we’ll get into details in subsequent posts. For now, we’re just glad to see you.
Ready now for the future,
Your Sub Pop Technical Staff.
We’ve finally joined the age of the future and in a frenzy of digitization have started streaming the jams from Sub Pop’s past, present and future. So, if you knew what were good for you and your ears, you’d hop on our bandwagon and listen to Sub Pop Radio.
Just follow this link to tune in. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
The darling of this year’s SXSW Interactive festival was undeniably Twitter — a service that’s so simple it almost seems inane. That is, until it locks its crack like claws around your thumbs and compulses them into astronomical text message bills.
All Twitter basically does is allow you to broadcast short messages about what you’re doing via SMS, IM, or web that go out to your friends (either via web or text messages). Since we here at Sub Pop always want you to know what we’re up to, we’ve started Twittering!
To follow Sub Pop through our various misadventures (mostly just announcements, last minute tour dates, and in-jokes but who knows it could get juicy…) just text “follow subpop” to 40404 from your cell phone and complete the signup process. We’ll look forward to saying things. Or twitting them. Or whatever.
