Hear Dum Dum Girls’ “Rimbaud Eyes” Now! ‘Too True’ Out Jan. 28

Too True, Dum Dum Girls’ [bias alert] TRULY ASTOUNDING and UTTERLY MIND-BLOWING third full-length record, comes out on January 28th on Sub Pop Records (pre-orders here)! And while, sure, we here at Sub Pop are admittedly and hopelessly biased toward loving whatever DeeDee & Co. come up with, it’s only because Dum Dum Girls’ have a track record for delivering some pretty bullet-proof, fuzz-filled, dark pop anthems. Just look to every single full-length LP and EP for proof. They did it again with Too True, and the album track, “Rimbaud Eyes”, is just another notch in their proof belt, or whatever. I’ll stop now, I think this metaphor is kind of getting away from me. Just listen to “Rimbaud Eyes” from the forthcoming Too True in the embedded player and you’ll hear what I’m ham-fistedly trying to tell you.

Pre-orders of Too True will receive a limited-edition Dum Dum Girls 7” single featuring “Rimbaud Eyes” b/w the unreleased track, “Girls Intuition”. And if you happen to prefer the fidelity-maximizing vinyl music format, your pre-order will contain the limited, colored-vinyl Loser Edition version of the record. But, such as the order of limited things, when they’re gone, they’re gone, so order soon!

Lyla Foy’s ‘Mirrors the Sky’ Out March 18th

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.

We’re Mobile Too


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.

Take a look at it here:
