Cullen Omori
The Diet

Chicago-born Cullen Omori went through a series of hardships following his debut album, New Misery. There’s always a silver cloud, however, and he was able to pour all of this into the making of his second album, The Diet. He mixes ‘70s art rock with the deftness of a top songsmith and his own specifically adapted gu...view item »

Wolf Parade
Cry Cry Cry

This first album in seven years from these reconvened indie rockers showcases their energetic brew of glam prog and synth rock with their signature rousing choruses and chaotic arrangements firmly in place. The years off seem to have given them a new lease of life resulting in an uplifting blast for uncertain times. ...view item »

The Shins
Wincing The Night Away

Listening to The Shins' album, Wincing The Night Away, is like falling into an oceanic daydream. The music is sleepy, the lyrics are poetic, and the sound is rich and harmonious. The album cover depicts organisms that have tentacles and baleen mouths, revealing the ocean theme that lies beneath. The song titles such as Sea Legs and Girl Sailor s...view item »

The Postal Service
Give Up (Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition)

Here's my original review of the album. My 2015 opinion varies little other than to say 'Such Great Heights' is a fabulous song, the others less so. However this was a zeitgeisty album that hit a certain breed of folks at just the right time. Ben Gibbard's heartfelt vocals over Jimmy Tamborello's electronics hit the mark for an awful lot of ...view item »

The Afghan Whigs
Do to the Beast

It seems that comebacks are the in thing at the moment what with My Bloody Valentine’s triumphant return last year and The Pixies disappointing new album, here we have Sub Pop veterans Afghan Whigs first album for 16 years and with amazing albums like 1993’s &lsqu...view item »

TAD
God's Balls

Gnarly 90’s alt-rock / grunge band TAD are, it has been decided, due a reappraisal and reissue campaign. So Sub Pop have stepped up to the mark! God’s Balls is TAD’s debut album, and it seethes with chugging weight. Both CD and LP editions are rounded out with some bonus tracks, some o...view item »

Soundgarden
Ultramega OK (Expanded)

What more needs to be said about Soundgarden’s Ultramega OK? The grunge rockers debut blended elements of psychedelic rock, heavy metal and hardcore, with the raw, rough edges of the first explosion of grunge in Seattle. Sub Pop bring this incredible record back with a heavily expanded edition available on a range of...view item »

Sleater-Kinney
Dig Me Out

This is not the Kinks. As evident in the artwork, Sleater-Kinney's third record, 'Dig Me Out', takes its influence less from the raucous underbelly of punk rock and more from the traditions of rock 'n' roll. That said, it's still what you'd call punk rock: full of the same fury and lyrical bite, but with "woah oh oh!"s and pop hook...view item »

Shearwater
Jet Plane and Oxbow

Surprise surprise from Shearwater, who seem to have unleashed a full-blown 1980’s synth-rock album right here. Jet Plane and Oxbow is a collection of big, widescreen songs, designed with the help of Brian Reitzell and Jesca Hoop among others. CD, double LP, or a special, independe...view item »

Shabazz Palaces
Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star

Afrofuturist, cosmic hip-hop experimentalists Shabazz Palaces release their third full-length for Seattle’s Sub Pop label. Here, the group’s lore is at its most dense and intriguing, their sound resides in both the past and the future simultaneously, and their list of collaborators continuously expands; Julia...view item »

Shabazz Palaces
Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines

Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines is a summer 2017 release from a hip-hop artist with a galactic sense of ambition and grandeur. Ishmael Butler, aka Shabazz Palaces, creates an otherworldly universe in this highly creative expedition through a mind realising the depths of his own imagination. Interstell...view item »

Shabazz Palaces
Black Up

It's Sub Pop week for Business Lady this week and damn, the label is barely recognizable as the same label that inspired my childhood interest in music. Saying that, they occasionally snap up a quality artist here and there with Shabazz Palaces being a good example of the diversification of the label over the years. In fact, I don't think t...view item »

Sebadoh
Bubble and Scrape: Expanded

“Bubble and Scrape” is probably my favourite Sebadoh album. I think Eric Gaffney and Jason Lowenstein contribute their best songs to this record, and to my mind it goes without saying that the Lou Barlow songs are great. It opens with the classic Barlow couplet of “Soul and Fire” and “Two Years Two Days”. Barl...view item »

Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop
Love Letter For Fire

Love Letter For Fire by Sam Beam and Jesca Hoop is an eclectic collection of unique folk and pop. Beam brings the wit and melancholic guitar of his Iron & Wine project, whilst Hoop contributes her experimental songwriting. The male-female harmonies are beautiful and an all-star band, includi...view item »

Retribution Gospel Choir
2

Alan Sparhawk's of Low is on to his second record (entitled '2' - snappy!) with all out rock side project Retribution Gospel Choir. Featuring fellow Low bass player Steve Garrington and sounding like an excellent proposition in their own right '2' is much more focused, produced effort than the material you may be familiar with by Low. I think this ...view item »

Pissed Jeans
Why Love Now

Sludgy, punky noise-makers Pissed Jeans have been churning out their brand of gnarly rock for thirteen years now. On Why Love Now, their fifth album, they focus their lyrical wit on the more humdrum events of modern life such as office supply deliveries along with the more uncomfortable such as fetish webcams. Why L...view item »

Pissed Jeans
Honeys

Pissed Jeans are back! After three shitkicking albums there’s been a three-and-a-half year wait for this one but ‘Honeys’ is finally upon us, a welcome injection of grit and bile and unironic sweat-stained passion in today’s often torpid rock climate. They peddle a breakneck neo-p...view item »

Mudhoney
The Lucky Ones

Unsure whether Mudhoney are still quite as relevant these days but they have turned into the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion on trk 1 of their new long player (but just a bit which is no bad thing) There's still a heavy demand for quality, fuzzed-up 60's style garage rock so long as it's done with a bit of panache. Which Mark Arm and Co. do with aplomb...view item »

METZ
Strange Peace

A new record from New York's (if not America's) loudest band promises to be ear shredding particularly when recording genius/grump Steve Albini has allowed them into his lair. This live to tape recording tries to grasp the full racket of the band in live performance resulting in an accessible yet terrifying ride. ...view item »

METZ
METZ

Canada’s Metz are the first band on Sub Pop to sound like they’re on Sub Pop in some time, clocking in at under half an hour for 11 frantic tracks of demented neo-grunge with propulsive drums and tooth-rattl...view item »

METZ
II

Toronto grungers METZ return with their appropriately titled second album II. If 2012’s self titled release sounded like Nirvana’s Bleach then... well... so does this. Clattering drums and scrawling guitars aplenty. Out on limited ‘Loser’ edition vinyl LP, standard vinyl LP and CD from Sub Pop....view item »

Mark Lanegan
I'll Take Care of You

This is Mark's fourth solo record and he's as consistent as it gets, without growing tiresome or predictable. All of the songs are covers but sound like a natural extension of his own writing from the three previous records. I'll Take Care of You came out roughly a year after Scraps at Midnight. This is incredibly prolific compared to his normal...view item »

Low
The Invisible Way

There is no such thing as a bad Low album, just good, very good and mediocre. Their last effort ‘C’mon‘ had a few killer songs but also a fair few forgettable ones. It seems since the wild experimentation of the very good ‘Drums and Guns’ they have retreated into a safe Low-shaped ho...view item »

Low
Ones and Sixes

A bloke called Alan who’s a member of Low says of One and Sixes; “I'm not going to tell you what this record is about because I have too much respect for that moment when you come to know it for yourself”. He goes on to talk about “the moment” and all that. All I know is that they c...view item »

Loma
Loma

While touring together, Texans Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski (Cross Record) became chummy enough with Jonathan Meiburg (Shearwater) to start a band; and so it was that Loma (which happens to mean ‘holiday’ in Finnish) came to be. If lead single ‘Black Willow’ represents t...view item »

Jesca Hoop
Memories Are Now

Fresh from an Iron & Wine collab and stepping out for a debut album on Subpop, Jesca Hoop’s idiosyncratic brand of singer-songwriterism befits the leftfield turn the label has taken recently. Calling to mind at once the torch-songs of Angel Olsen and the low-key experimental turns of ...view item »

J Mascis
Tied to a Star

Dinosaur Junior frontman J Mascis opts for a laid back and acoustic feel with his new offering, featuring guest appearances from Cat Power among others. The prolific singer / guitarist's output has been particularly impressive over recent years, with his 2011 debut solo album 'Several Shades of Why' gaining critical acclaim, and more recently Di...view item »

Iron and Wine
Beast Epic

Ol’ big beard Sam Beam is back with a record that he says harks back to his earlier works such as ‘The Creek Drank the Cradle’. This brings Beam’s work a full circle as he seems to be rediscovering the simplicity that made those records such hushed delights. This his his 5th album and contains the type...view item »

Hot Snakes
Suicide Invoice

Next, please say hello to Hot Snakes who number John Reis (Rocket from the Crypt/Drive By Jehu) and Rick Froberg (Drive by Jehu) amongst their ranks. You know that style of American rawk where the drums are hit very hard and the guitars are played sideways but aggressively? Well this is i...view item »

Hot Snakes
Automatic Midnight

The concise opening double shot of "If Credit's What Matters I'll Take Credit" and the title track proves the band to be noise merchants of the highest order, with Froberg's fierce shout joined by a pummelling wall of guitars, pile-driving drums, and bass lines that sound like nukes going off. It doesn't let up from there, either: Automatic Midn...view item »

Hot Snakes
Audit In Progress

Man, few albums provide an immediate jolt like Hot Snakes' third album. For a rocking good time, this band is pretty tough to beat. Audit In Progress is aggressive, in-your-face, and extremely fun to listen to, coming off sort of like Nirvana with loads of swagger instead of self-conscious angst. While Hot Snakes' sound is loosely classifiable a...view item »

Heron Oblivion
Heron Oblivion

Heron Oblivion are a new group, assembled from members of a remarkable selection of bands: Comets On Fire, Howlin’ Rain and Six Organs Of Admittance are all represented, and Meg Baird leads the proceedings. This self-titled debut has a classic 60’s p...view item »

Earth
Phase 3 Thrones &; Dominions

Phase 3: Thrones and Dominions is one of those recordings that gives a newcomer a new perspective on the potential of the electric guitar. In this case, the idea is simple: do away with everything else and replace it with a dense wall of buzzing guitars. There are no vocals whatsoever on this recording, and drums are used very sparingly. The 'bo...view item »

Earth
Pentastar: In The Style Of Demons

Earth created something of a genre-defining record with their debut, Earth 2: Special Low Frequency Version, a concoction which founder Dylan Carlson called 'ambient metal' and which is now more widely known as drone metal. Comprised of three very long tracks of very loud, very slow droning guitars feeding back and riffs bleeding into one anothe...view item »

Earth
Earth 2

This is not an album that you listen to like most albums. The idea isn't to actively listen to it song by song; you start with track one and just let it fill the room/headphones while you go about doing whatever you do. It's like a piece of furniture or a new colour of paint on the wall - it's essentially gigantic, powerful background music. For...view item »

Dum Dum Girls
Too True

Dum Dum Girls, eh? Can someone please explain to me the appeal of the Dum Dum Girls? They're on Sub Pop, often a good label, and they've been plugging away at it for years but they're yet to put out anything that appeals to me. If you're wondering why I've ended up with this record to review then a cursory look at the post-it notes left by other...view item »

Downtown Boys
Cost Of Living

The brilliant Downtown Boys made an absolutely monumental record a couple years back in Full Communism, a hardcore record with skronking sax, righteous politics and an abiding love for Bruce Springsteen. Their new record, Cost of Living, sounds like a structural upgrade to their sound, the l...view item »

Death Vessel
Island Intervals

Sub Pop, eh. You used to know what to expect from these guys, not so much any more. I'll be honest with you, I was hoping this would be a rock album. This Death Vessels album is full of wistful sweeping post-rocky pop with breathy girl vocals and a boy who sings like Jonsi from Sigur Ros...view item »

Deaf Wish
Pain

Noise is scattered through the songs of Deaf Wish. It wallows through their sighed grunge tunes and their no frills punk shitshows, feedback wailing as if it wants nothing more than to be part of a pop song for once. Pain reconciles the twin forces of melodious songwriting and nauseating dissonance, ...view item »

Chad VanGaalen
Shrink Dust

I’ve got a lot of love for Chad Vangaalen. His last album ‘Diaper Island’ was spinning on my turntable for the longer than most. The video for 'Peace On The Rise’ is an inspired masterpiece greatly indebted to the work of Rene Laloux’s, particularly his fantasy epic Gandahar. One of the bands I play in had the pleas...view item »

Chad VanGaalen
Light Information

Chad VanGaalen was of course the man who recorded those brilliant Women albums and also made the spectacular Diaper Island as well as a bunch of other excellent solo albums. Here he is with his first since 2014's Shrink Dust and has been inspired by bringing up his kids who even sing ...view item »

Damien Jurado
Rehearsals for Departure

The 1999 album from Damien Jurado is back back back in the form of vinyl and cassette reissues on Sub Pop. Rehearsals For Departure is Jurado’s second full-length, and rather more (indie) folky than his debut. Each song feels long lived-in and heavy with melancholy, although Jurado...view item »

Ugly Casanova
Sharpen Your Teeth

Ugly Casanova is a project with a fair deal of unclear mythology surrounding it, although it seems like it is probably just Isaac Brock from Modest Mouse doing some solo oddities. Sharpen Your Teeth, a record of slightly-unhinged songcraft, was first released in 2002, and is now reissue...view item »

The Afghan Whigs
Uptown Avondale

Originally released in 1992, Uptown Avondale is a cover album by Afghan Whigs paying tribute to the soul and Motown songs that influenced their rock sound. Containing covers of the Holland/Dozier/Holland classic Come See About Me and Beware by the Rev. A...view item »

Low
Christmas

Now as much of a christmas standard as "Rocking Around The Christmas Tree" by Mel and Kim. Low are the perfect band to soundtrack Christmas, coming as they do from the snow-bound city of Duluth which glistens like Christmas half the year round. This short album combines lovely originals "Just Like Christmas" and "...view item »

Deaf Wish
Lithium Zion

The fifth LP from Aussie rockers Deaf Wish also marks their second for Sub Pop after 2015’s Pain. Lithium Zion is a fun and frenzied jolt of garage-punk that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Vocal duties are shared around, which is a nice touch, and overall the thing comes off ver...view item »

Iron & Wine
Weed Garden

Sam Beam & co return as Iron & Wine to follow up their Grammy-nominated LP released in early 2018, 'Beast Epic'. Weed Garden is a collection of songs to complement the aforementioned record; its writing has been an evolving process the past three years. The six-song album was a smaller but significant part of th...view item »

Knife Knights
1 Time Mirage

Given that the pair of Shabazz Palaces LPs that dropped in 2017 really stank out the place, it’s probably a good thing that Ishmael Butler has found a new project to focus on. Here he teams up with Erik Blood - who, among other things, was engineer for SP’s Lese Majesty - fo...view item »

Nirvana
Bleach: Deluxe Edition

Nirvana going round for the first time. 'Bleach' was the beginning of the famed grungers infinite ascendency, and it's now reissued as a lovely deluxe edition with more anthemic dejection than you could ever wish for: a live recording of their Portland show in 1990 (with a few surprises and covers), plus an obscenely l...view item »

Rick and Morty
The Rick and Morty Soundtrack

Aww geez. Wubba lubba dub dub. Eek barba durkle. And so on. This Rick And Morty tie-in album was only a matter of time, given the popularity of the show and the general high quality of the soundtrack. Whatever format you buy the Rick And Morty Soundtrack on, you’ll be getting twenty-six tracks, eighteen of which are ...view item »

Luluc
Sculptor

Luluc have friends in high places. They can count Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney) and Matt Berninger (The National) among their fans, while Sculptor features contributions from J. Mascis, Dirty Three’s Jim White and more. Their secon...view item »

Mudhoney
Digital Garbage

Apparently, Mark Arm wanted to write an album with lyrics akin to early Beach Boys records - a more holiday-ish vibe. The leader of Seattle grunge….can we still use the word grunge?....okay, garage rock legends, Mudhoney has instead decided that powerful social commentary suits their music better for new album Digital Gar...view item »

Eric's Trip
Forever Again

Eric’s Trip were a Canadian band led by singer/songwriter Julie Doiron. Their initial career lasted six years from 1990-96. They have the auspicious accolade of being the first Canadian band to sign for Sub Pop. Forever Again is the band’s second album and sees them nicely balance melodic hooks with ...view item »

Eric's Trip
Purple Blue

Purple Blue was the third album by Canadian indie-rockers Eric’s Trip, originally released in 1996. The band, who are named after a Sonic Youth song, are led by Julie Doiron who has since gone on to have a distinguished solo career. The band split in 1996 but have reformed twice since. The...view item »

Blitzen Trapper
Furr (Deluxe Edition)

Blitzen Trapper’s Furr gets a tenth-anniversary reissue. Over the years, this LP has come to be considered one of the signature Sub Pop releases - quite a feat when you consider the competition. Dropping at a time when The Shins were still accepted as a good band and freak-folk wa...view item »

U-Men
U-Men

Simple to put this one. A triple LP or double CD anthology which includes literally everything U-Men released from the studio, plus an additional 5 tracks that have never been released, all remastered. Their unique sound paved they way for the grunge generation in Seattle, so if you like your alt-rock punky, avantgarde, frantic ...view item »

Low
Double Negative

Two years on from the excellent Ones and Sixes Low have headed back down Highway 53 to Eau Claire to resume work with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, James Blake) on an album which is said to be an unflinching eleven track quest to be loud, abrasive and commanding. A Low recor...view item »

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever

Summer’s coming, which means that we must brace ourselves once more for a deluge of new records featuring pretty guitar riffs and nice singing. Getting in there early are Melbourne group Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. Their debut LP ...view item »

Yuno
Moodie

Debut EP from wannabe New Yorker Yuno. On Moodie he finds a weird middle ground between Grizzly Bear's poppier moments and the freedom of Lil Uzi Vert while longingly looking across from the country from his West Coast home. There's also a hint of&n...view item »

The Vaselines
Enter the Vaselines

Kurt Cobain bummed The Vaselines and quite rightly so, they're brilliant. Like a gift from a shiny happy New Testament God, Sub Pop (who else?) have seen fit to issue a deluxe collection of basically everything you're ever gonna need by the band. You can buy this one, look at it, go "I never need to buy another Vaselines record in my life" th...view item »

Jeremy Enigk
The Return Of The Frog Queen

Really really great album. This was Jeremy Enigk's first solo album away from Sunny Day Real Estate and it's a totally different kettle of kippers. This is wonderful baroque orchestral-pop with strings and all sorts putting me in mind of Cardinal and Richard Davies. This re-issu...view item »

The Shins
Oh, Inverted World

Exactly what you never knew you always needed: a fifteen-year-old album reissued on cassette. Maybe you need an extra copy for your car. Maybe you want to give it to somebody who can’t afford a record player. What do we know? Either way, The Shins’ 2001 classic Oh, Inverted World is finally stepping into the...view item »

Mark Lanegan
Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Mark Lanegan’s second solo album is back on the streets again in the form of this double gatefold LP. Whiskey For The Holy Ghost is dark and dramatic and deeply American, pulling away from the grunge sound of his Screaming Trees (although there is a guest appearance from Dan Peters ...view item »

Forth Wanderers
Forth Wanderers

After releasing two EPs and their debut full length on labels such as Marathon Artists and Too Far Gone, their follow up LP shows the five piece, led by songwriters Ben Guterl and Ava Trilling, join the Sub Pop roster. Emotive and life loving indie rock that bursts with joy whilst nursing it’s wounds....view item »

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Talk Tight

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever's recently released 'The French Press' did rather well for itself so now we have a re-issue of their debut which already showcases their marriage of the laid back pop charm of the Go Betweens with the verbal dexterity of Courtney Barnett. Classic Aussie pop availa...view item »

Moaning

Their post-punk almost clocking in at ‘normal’ punk BPM, Moaning are releasing their debut self-titled album. Expect catchy singalong self-deprecating lyrics accompanied by very fuzzy basslines. Moaning is available on CD, cassette, vinyl and super-sexy special edition pink ‘Loser’ vinyl, if that...view item »

Frankie Cosmos
Vessel

Frankie Cosmos leader and chief songwriter Greta Kline has an impressive 52 releases under her belt in just seven years. Vessel is her third under the Frankie Cosmos name and sees her looking back at the effect this artistically prolific time has had on her through her particular brand of pleasingly melodic indie-pop. LP, CD and...view item »

Earth
Phase 3 - Thrones & Dominions

Its a damn shame how little recognition this album gets in comparison to its predecessor, the monumental album Earth 2. While Earth 2 pretty much established drone doom as a subgenre and is still cited by many as the only worthwhile album Earth released, Phase 3: Thrones And Dominions is proof that Dylan Carlson is more than a one-trick pony (th...view item »

Iron and Wine
The Sea & The Rhythm

Iron and Wine are here with their ep The Sea & The Rhythm on Sub Pop (on vinyl for the first time with free download inside). These lot are my housemates favourites and listening to them now explains his bouts of seclusion and severe autistic social interaction. Sensitive Folk music making good use of acoustic guitar and banjo. The understated br...view item »

Flight of The Conchords
Flight Of The Conchords

I heard this album before I saw any episodes of their TV show, but I'm pleased to say that Flight of the Conchords' goofy, absurdist and faux-dramatic songs work perfectly both on screen and on record. They pay homage to many various musical genres throughout, such as the Pet Shop Boys-style "Inner City Pressure" complete with spoken worded vers...view item »

Koes Barat
Koes Barat

Koes Barat by Koes Barat is essentially a collection of tracks from Alan Bishop covering his favourite Indonesian songs. It's an odd mix that is probably a result of the multiverse theory, because let's face it, I'm not too sure how normal that mix is for our known universe? Anyway, Koes Barat is available on vinyl LP a...view item »

Earth
Pentastar In The Style Of Demons

I have heard lots of negative reactions towards Pentastar, but honestly, I don't see what's to dislike. It has that special Dylan Carlson touch, and it seems much more thought out than Phase 3 (which is amazing in it's own right). It's an album that has rang true for many people I've showed it to, who have all seemed to dig the stoner vibe that ...view item »

Kyle Craft
Full Circle Nightmare

Simpering Southern glam-rock warbler Kyle Craft returns to Sub Pop with a second diner jukebox-ready long player, Full Circle Nightmare. Painstakingly faithful to the seediest, most regretful and wistful sentiments of the genre, the music sounds precisely as Kyle looks: as if generated by some sort of Americana algorith...view item »

Flight of The Conchords
I Told You I Was Freaky

I caught onto Flight Of The Conchords quite late but when I eventually got it (the first few viewings made me think it was a massive pile of shit) I realised it was a total work of comedy genius. Very understated but very funny... Initially it was the songs that put me off but now I hink they're some of the funniest moments of the show. The 2nd ser...view item »

Mudhoney
Superfuzz Bigmuff: Deluxe Edition

Y’know when you’re 16 and you like Neil Young, the Beatles and the Stones and love music but really don’t get on with the whole Madchester movement, and although you don’t realise it, you’re still waiting for that one thing that completely blows your min...view item »

Mudhoney
LiE

Live album that documents Mudhoney’s 2016 European tour. LiE's release coincides with the 30th anniversary of the band and features eleven tracks from across those three decades. After all that time the superfuzz is still super, the bigmuff is still big and the riffs... hoo-boy the riffs. ...view item »

One Way Street

Calling all Mark Lanegan fans! The first five solo albums that the gravel-voiced singer released, gathered together in full as a 6LP set. From solo debut The Winding Sheet to latest collection Field Songs, it’s all here. One Way Street features reproduction sleeves and heavyweight vinyl, all put ...view item »

Flight Of The Conchords
Flight Of The Conchords

This is perhaps the best piece of comedy vinyl (on this webpage). Flight of the Conchords’ debut album Flight of the Conchords (not to be confused with the tv-show Flight of the Conchords) is finally back out on vinyl, thanks to the kind folks over at Sub Pop. Featuring classics like Business Time, In...view item »

Bully
Losing

Indie confessionals Bully made frank on their hooks with their 2013 debut, and they follow up with Losing, a record a little down the line from their early-ages adult grunge and with more dynamism than their fevered past -- these songs, while still as fiery, open up their intensity to the possibilities of...view item »

Sleater-Kinney
Live in Paris

The reformed Sleater-Kinney, captured live in concert in 2015. Live In Paris is a punchy and fierce document of a great live band, as any attendees of recent shows can attest. CD, cassette tape and multiple vinyl editions are available, packaged in a pleasingly old-school photo-collage sleeve. On Sub Pop....view item »

The Gotobeds
Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic

The Gotobeds are a fired-up rock band with a jagged-edged, noisy sound: all gnarled and twisted and shouting. Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic, which doesn’t appear to contain any Red Hot Chilli Peppers covers, is released by Sub Pop in CD and cassette tape editions, plus two differently-presente...view item »

So Pitted

Debut full-length from So Pitted, a Seattle trio with heavy chops. neo drips with drawl and distortion, the members of the band readily trading instruments and vocal duties. CD and LP editions, plus a special, white vinyl ‘Loser Edition’, available only via independent record shops. On Sub Pop....view item »

Doldrums
The Air Conditioned Nightmare

Second album by electropunkers The Doldrums. The Air Conditioned Nightmare takes its title from Henry Miller who, upon his return to the US after a decade away, found that it had become a vacuous, disconnected place. This idea is certainly represented in the dystopian sounds on the album, even if it does sound like it w...view item »

Soundgarden
Screaming Life / Fopp

Let's go back to those amazing times back in the early nineties when grunge was just a mere twinkle in Seattle’s eye, before Nirvana were perhaps the biggest band on the planet and Sub Pop were still just a tiny American indie label. 1990 saw the release of ‘Screaming Life/F...view item »

Shabazz Palaces
Lese Majesty

If there was something that I never expected Sub-Pop to start trading in, that thing was hip-hop. Now with them brandishing the second SB album, shaking it in my gormless face and the impressive Clipping. CD jammed in my back pocket, I'm now skipping down the road like a lunatic singing a stupid song about the dawn...view item »

Low
C'mon

Low are one of those bands that very often seem to do no wrong and even when they do misfire everyone seems to be so happy to have them around that they get away with it. Following on from Robert Plant covering a couple of their tunes on his last album, there certainly seems to be a bigger push around Low this time. Whereas their previous long p...view item »

Iron and Wine
Woman King

Sometimes you can release too many records. Iron and Wine so far has released pretty much good quality stuff but on this new 6 track EP standards start to slip just ever so slightly. The first track is nice if a bit more bluesy than the Will Oldham meets Belle and Sebastian sound of yore .Next track 'Jezebel' is simply love...view item »

Sleater-Kinney
Call The Doctor

The all guitars, no bass 'Call The Doctor' saw Sleater-Kinney only two records into their career, at their most political -- the political is of course the personal, as we know, and these songs were inspired by Corin Tucker's experience in a commercial and typically dead-end job. 'Call The Doctor' continues to have Sleater-Kinney's fuc...view item »

Sleater-Kinney
The Woods

And lastly the new Sleater Kinney album is more of the same but less so as it sounds like more cash has been thrown at 'em. Still there's some decent tunes on there (notably the recent single) and it's on 2LP with a silk screened side 4 or a CD with a bonus DVD all on Sub Pop Decisions decisions eh.......view item »

Sleater-Kinney
The Hot Rock

Sleater-Kinney's fourth record kept up their knack for iconic artwork, with that classic picture of the dejected-looking band of punks hailing a cab. Other than that, though, it continued their conscious detachment from punk rock as an art-form, the band transitioning into a more indie rock sound with intricate guitar duelling and personal lyric...view item »

Sleater-Kinney
One Beat

Sleater Kinney come back from a long absence with their 23rd album. The 1st one since the lead singer died in 1969. Actually I'm talking shite but they do have a new album like. Some of the singing sounds jusy like Siouxsie from banshee fame. Whining high pitched yelps.I started to call an ambul...view item »

Red House Painters
Old Ramon

The Red House Painters recorded their sixth and final album, Old Ramon, in the late nineties, although it took several years for it to be released due to label wranglings. Its consequent ‘legendary lost album’ status turned out to be fairly warranted, as this is one of Mark Kozelek's stronge...view item »
