Sub Pop & Hardly Art Make Record Store Day Worth Living (2018 edition)

Rsd 2018 620x360

Herewith, details on Sub Pop’s elaborate plans to celebrate the TRUE most wonderful time of the year: Record Store Day 2018. 

As the main course, we’re putting out Thomas Andrew Doyle’s (aka TAD) limited-edition Incineration Ceremony LP. And! Equally delightful, though more challenging to flip on eBay, a bunch of our artists are performing (King Tuff and Yuno), or doing DJ sets (Steve Turner of Mudhoney, John Reis & Gar Wood of Hot Snakes, and Colleen Green) in actual record stores! And all of this will be available or happen on Saturday, April 21st at participating retailers.

Please find info on Thomas Andrew Doyle and a schedule of performances and DJ sets below.


Thomas Andrew Doyle’s / Incineration Ceremony LP:

Incineration Ceremony is the new work by Thomas Andrew Doyle (TAD, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth, Hog Molly) and is a return to roots of sorts. After spending his formative years in music playing in jazz clubs while attending school studying classical and jazz music at Boise State University, Doyle comes forth with a symphonic take on what is going on in his head. Spawned from the dark and dreary recesses of Doyle’s psyche comes an immense sound of textures, rhythms and material suitable for film and stand-alone listening, disquieting all who are within earshot. People who are familiar with his music should expect the unexpected. Doyle’s entry into the world of symphonic composition is no novice beginner’s attempt. Incineration Ceremony is a musical journeyman’s expression that is genuine, heartfelt, honest, uncompromising, and authoritative.

Incineration Ceremony is limited to 1,500 copies worldwide, and comes housed in a single-LP jacket with custom dust sleeve and grey/black vinyl.

Incineration Ceremony Tracklist:

1. Silent Incineration

2. Bio-Illogical Functions

3. Meditations in Null

4. Desire

5. Nurtured in Grief

6. The Only Thing You Truly Own Is Nothing

7. Prognati ignis ignis

8. Lost in Abyssmal Waters*

9. Born into Sorrow*

10. Asleep in Arrythmia*

*Bonus tracks included as digital download


DJ Sets and In-Store Performances (from early to later):

Steve Turner (Mudhoney) / Jackpot Records DJ set (Portland, 10 am): 3574 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR 97214

Colleen Green / Amoeba DJ set (Hollywood, noon): 6400 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

Yuno / Amoeba In-store performance (Berkeley, 2pm): 2455 Telegraph Ave. Berkeley, CA 94704.

John Reis (of Hot Snakes)  / Vinyl Junkies DJ set (San Diego, 3pm): 2235 Fern St, San Diego, CA 92104

King Tuff / Fingerprints In-store performance (Long Beach, 6pm): 420 E 4th St, Long Beach, CA 90802.

Gar Wood (of Hot Snakes + Beehive & the Barracudas) w/ Tracy Wooley (Beehive & the Barracudas)  / Vinyl Junkies DJ set (San Diego, California, 7pm): 2235 Fern St, San Diego, CA 92104


About Record Store Day

Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica (read more here).

More of what “The People” have to say about Yuno:
“Yuno’s lithe voice floats amidst the cheerful soundscape, bouncing off the plucky piano keys… the brand of sunny pop displayed on ‘No Going Back’ should earn him his own cult fanbase.” - Impose
 
“It’s light and breezy indie-pop, with warm and bouncy synth-lines softly coloured overck with warm piano melodies and guitar solos. His vocals – fitting beautifully into the current psychedelic renaissance spearheaded by the likes of Tame Impala and Washed Out – pour out an infectious melody that’s simultaneously great fun and inflected with melancholy.” - Indie Shuffle
 
“Bouncy and bright…” - Gorilla Vs. Bear.
 
“Charming us all with its buoyant pop flair and instrumentals that sound as if they were seemingly dipped in sunshine, “No Going Back” signals Yuno’s return in a way that’s almost impossible to shake. “No Going Back” is as promising as it is optimistic.” - The Grey Estates
 
“Drifting digital pop casting a bittersweet spell.” – CLASH

We Signed Jacksonville’s Yuno! Now Watch His Official Video For Exuberant Single “No Going Back”

Please join us in welcoming multi-talented artist Yuno to Sub Pop Records! We will release his music into the world throughout 2018, beginning with this official video for “No Going Back.”

Trust us, you’re about to listen on repeat -> YouTube | Spotify | Apple Music

Yuno’s bittersweet vocals glide over a buoyant bass line and, fittingly, one of the song’s central themes is passing a point of no return.



Yuno both stars in and directs the “No Going Back” video and offers this of the visual, “The video pretty much represents how I was feeling when I wrote this song. Kind of wandering around, not too sure about where I want to go, but definitely sure about where I don’t want to be. Just trying to make sure I have some fun along the way.”

Yuno was introduced to the label by Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces and Digable Planets fame, who’s a member of Sub Pop’s A&R staff. Butler offers his praise, “First time I heard Yuno, I peeped, of course, that he possessed all the trappings of a great musician, impeccable taste on his riffs, songs catchy but not corny, familiar but dopely strange. There was seductive magic that I couldn’t, and still can’t put my finger on, which is the essence of his uniqueness. Kids a star, man.”

27-year-old Yuno’s pedigree is diverse. His parents are from the UK, and of Jamaican descent, and his musical upbringing involved a wide array of discovery mainly as a result of being part of his local skateboarding subculture. That’s what got him into music: hanging out with friends at their now abandoned mall, going to the skate shop, playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater video games, watching skate videos, and listening to all the music featured therein.

At home, he’d listen to reggae, ska, rocksteady and classic R&B, but it was skating that got him into rock and rap. Formative albums included ones his friends would pass along to him on burned CDs: HIM’s Razorblade Romance, AFI’s Sing The Sorrow and Rancid’s …And Out Come The Wolves. He never really went to shows because rarely anyone worth seeing would come through. The first gig he attended was headlined by a rapper called MC Lars. That’s what made him consider starting a solo project – seeing one dude onstage, recreating all the music alone with a laptop. To this day, he’s only been to four shows. “I’m used to just watching them on YouTube,” he says. “ I never think about a live show when writing songs. I just make whatever.”



He continues “I knew in high school that I wanted to make music. When I was really young, drawing had been my thing; and in middle school I started to make videos with my friends – little skits. Then I began playing guitar.” In eighth grade, his cousin taught him how to make beats, and that’s when Yuno arguably began. His dad also bought him a $20 guitar at a flea market. Despite his mom insisting he get lessons, he taught himself by learning online guitar tabs, mostly for metal bands. He says, “I’d bring my guitar to school every day. In high school, I had a lot of friends that played guitar, as well. We would all come to school early, learn songs and play for each other in the cafeteria.”

Yuno creates his music in his home studio, self-producing, and engineering, playing all the instruments. He also shoots all of his press photos, designs his album art and directs his music videos, with a great amount of attention paid to the use of color throughout his work. He explains, “Pink has been my favorite color since around 6th grade. I had pink and black shoes, skateboard, and even painted my bedroom pink and black. It was mostly inspired by Razorblade Romance at the time.” He continues, “I like being really hands-on with everything surrounding my music, even now that I’m with Sub Pop.”

There’s no better time to start following Yuno everywhere in the interverse, starting with subpop.com | Spotify | Bandcamp | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter
