APRIL 17, 2010 IS RECORD STORE DAY!

6484

IN HONOR OF THIS SPECIAL DAY, SUB POP RECORDS WILL RELEASE A MARVELOUS RANGE OF MUSIC PRODUCTS, AVAILABLE ONLY IN PARTICIPATING RECORD STORES

Record Store Day In-Store Performances by Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba, No Age, Male Bonding & Dum Dum Girls

Originally conceived in 2007 as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally, the first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Now celebrated the third Saturday every April, it’s the one day each year that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists and labels to celebrate the art of music. We at Sub Pop Records have put together a whole raft of releases (seven in all!) to help entice people into record stores to enjoy the many pleasures offered there. Each destined for future collector’s item status, the Sub Pop Record Store Day 2010 series of releases is sure to appeal to the minor OCD tendencies of every true music enthusiast. To find a participating store, go here.

The Helio Sequence makes a baby!

Well Brandon did anyway with more than a little help from his wife Pavlina. Here are the stats straight from the horses mouth:

IT’S A GIRL!!!

On August 28, 2008 at 1:03 pm Malvina Maria Summers was born- 6lbs 10 oz and 20 inches long.

We’ve been home since the 29th getting used to semi-sleepless nights and just generally being head over heels in love with her!

The Helio Sequence, Fleet Foxes and Arthur & Yu - all on Live at KEXP Vol. 4

4657

One of the ways our friends at KEXP raise money to keep on keepin’ on is through the sale of their series of Live at KEXP compilations. These CDs feature KEXP’s exclusive, live in-studio recordings and recordings from live remote broadcasts across the country. And, Volume 4 is coming out on September 16th! This new installment includes several artists whose recordings are generally available on the Sub Pop label. Specifically, these artists…

The Helio Sequence, who perform the song “Can’t Say No” from their album Keep Your Eyes Ahead
and
Fleet Foxes with the song “Oliver James” from their self-titled album.

Plus! This volume also includes the song “Lion’s Mouth” from Hardly Artists Arthur & Yu.

Live at KEXP – Volume 4 is evidently available exclusively through Insound and you can (and should) pre-order it now!
