    Screaming Life/Fopp

    From the depths of the Sub Pop archives comes a reissue of
    Soundgarden's thunderous opening salvo, Screaming Life, plus bonus
    tracks from the Fopp EP and Sub Pop 200 compilation. This reissue
    marks the first time these tracks will be available digitally, and their first
    appearance on vinyl since the original, late-80s pressings (notwithstanding
    a long-gone, late-'90s repress of Screaming Life). All tracks have been
    remastered by Seattle studio wizard and producer of the original Screaming
    Life and Sub Pop 200 sessions, Jack Endino, who had this to say about
    it:


    "Ah, Screaming Life, Soundgarden's debut, and one of the first real
    records I made for anyone outside my own band. I already knew
    Soundgarden pretty well, since they and Skin Yard had shared the stage
    many times in Seattle's tiny club scene circa 1985-1986. Soon after
    opening Reciprocal Recording in July 1986, there I was with Soundgarden,
    trying to make the most of our eight tracks. Somehow, we found room
    for all of Matt Cameron's 'bonus tubs,' Hiro's primordial Fender bass,
    and a whopping four tracks to share between Kim Thayil's mad guitar
    psychedelia and Chris Cornell's still-expanding voice. 'Nothing To Say'
    was the song that made us all look at each other and go, 'uh, holy crap,
    how did we do this?'


    Stuff started happening. A&M came calling. SST agreed to put out
    their next record. But Soundgarden was not finished with Sub Pop. They
    contributed 'Sub Pop Rock City,' about Seattle's then-rising 'grunge'
    scene, to the Sub Pop 200 comp; and they threw everyone a curveball
    with Steve Fisk-produced Ohio Players and Green River covers on the
    Fopp EP.


    The glorious vistas of a major label future awaited them. To quote Kim
    from an old interview, 'It was karma, it was dogma, it was dog breath.'"

    Light Information

    Nobody cared about their old heads, because the new ones work just fine now, don't they?.... they have the same size mouth and eyes.

    The song Old Heads is a sci-fi space anthem to technology that constantly replaces itself, proving both necessary and unnecessary at the same time. It's also a jangly pop gem, a trip through the fantastical that is ultimately warm and relatable. This remarkable coexistence is one of many achievements of Chad VanGaalen's Light Information, his sixth record on Sub Pop.

    For an album that's about not feeling comfortable with really anything, as VanGaalen says, Light Information is nonetheless a vivid, welcoming journey through future worlds and relentless memories. The rich soundscapes and sometimes jarring imagery could only come from the mind of a creative polymath--an accomplished visual artist, animator, director, and producer,VanGaalen has scored television shows, designed puppet characters for Adult Swim, directed videos for Shabazz Palaces, Strand of Oaks,METZ, Dan Deacon, and The Head and the Heart, and produced records for Women, Alvvays, and others.

    While alienation has always been a theme of VanGaalen's music,Light Information draws on a new kind of wisdom--and anxiety--gained as he watches his kids growing up. Being a parent has given me a sort of alternate perspective, worrying about exposure to a new type of consciousness that's happening through the internet, he says. Throughout the dark-wave reverb of Light Information are stories of paranoia, disembodiment, and isolation--but there's also playfulness, empathy, and intimacy.

    The product of six years' work, going back even before 2014's Shrink Dust, Light Information emerged from the experimental instruments that fill VanGaalen's Calgary garage studio. As always, VanGaalen wrote, played, and produced all of the music on Light Information(save Ryan Bourne's bass part on Mystery Elementals and vocals onStatic Shape from his young daughters Ezzy and Pip), and designed the cover art.

    Antidotes

    This is the debut from Oxford, England's five-piece dance-rock band. Completing the circuit between the minimalism of American composer Steve Reich, guitars that sound like insects, and tennis player Andy Roddick, theirs is a uniquely winning formula. Driving percussion high in the mix, guitars played above the 12th fret, no chords, and splashes of synth color all come together like the schematics for a piece of precision engineering.

    Superfuzz Bigmuff EP

    Rock & roll got a badly needed revitalizing overhaul with Seattle's grunge explosion of the late 1980's, and Mudhoney was there to make sure it got done right. Although nearly eclipsed by the success of such bands as Nirvana and Pearl Jam, Mudhoney was arguably the most important grunge band of all. Their Touch Me I'm Sick defined a generation of disenchanted middle-class malcontents bored stiff by the predictable mire that rock & roll had become.


    Superfuzz Bigmuff compiles the band's rare early singles in one convenient package. Twelve essential tracks here, and they all rock mightily. If you're old enough you'll want to say that you were there, if you know what you're talking about, folks might believe you. Do yourself a favor and familiarize yourself with the rock & roll revival that was Mudhoney.

    Action And Indications

    Seaweed formed out of the fertile northwest punk scene of the mid-to-late '80s in Tacoma and Olympia Washington. Singer Aaron Stauffer, fresh off a stint in the little-known Spook & the Zombies, founded the band with best friend Clint Werner, who assumed guitar duties. After the recruitment of guitarist Wade Neal, bassist John Atkins, and drummer Bob Bulgrien, Seaweed began playing clubs throughout the Pacific Northwest. From 1989 to 1999, Seaweed recorded five punk-pop LPs and played over a thousand shows. According to All Music Guide, "they played D.I.Y. with the Sub Pop label for their first three records, went ambitiously astray by signing with Hollywood Records, then did the cool right thing by returning to indie Merge." This August, Merge Records offers the vinyl reissue of 1999's Actions and Indications, remastered and pressed to high quality vinyl, with three unreleased bonus tracks (digital only) added. Originally recorded at Tacoma's Uptone Electric studio in the summer of 1998, Actions and Indications is a tour de force of power chord dynamism.

    Blood, Guts, And Pussy

    Blood Guts & Pussy is a 1990 album by the Dwarves. It was their first album for Sub Pop, and the album's sleeve was the subject of controversy, receiving protests from feminists.[1] Dwarves frontman Blag The Ripper asserts that the Blood Guts & Pussy classic Drug Store is one of his favourite songs to play live, and that it is frequently requested during live sets.[2] Drug Store was played acoustically by the Dwarves in the United Kingdom in 2005.

    Animal Joy

    Sub Pop is proud to present Shearwater's Animal Joy, our first album by the band and their eighth overall. Led by Jonathan Meiburg, and featuring drummer Thor Harris, and bassist Kimberly Burke, Shearwater has been a favorite at Sub Pop HQ for years. On Animal Joy, Meiburg ditches the expansive approach of his recent records - particularly the epic trilogy of Palo Santo, Rook and The Golden Archipelago - to create a record that seems shockingly direct, immediate and intensely personal. He's no stranger to lush, crafted recordings, but this one sounds like no prior Shearwater incarnation.

    Sub Pop is thrilled to announce the signing of Duluth, MN's Low. This is their seventh album, following releases on Kranky and Vernon Yard. Their signature slow-core sound has been significantly updated such that The Great Destroyer can be defined as a rock record. It's a fantastically rich album, produced by Dave Fridmann, and an early contender for Best of 2005.

    Tied To A Star

    J Mascis' Tied to a Star is the follow up to his acclaimed Sub Pop debut
    Several Shades of Why. The album, led by the songs "Every Morning"
    and "Wide Awake," was recorded and produced by Mascis and mixed
    by John Agnello at Bisquiteen in Amherst, MA.


    It makes perfect sense that I was asked to write a bio for J Mascis.
    Let's face it, he and I have a long history. It all started the first time I
    saw him live. It was in New York City. I don't remember when or where,
    but I think he was walking around. I was probably walking around, too.
    The second time was also in New York, at a Mexican restaurant in the
    East Village (the one that takes credit cards now, but didn't used to).
    Years later I actually met him at the SXSW festival though a friend who
    works at Sub Pop. I guess that meeting went well, because when that
    friend from Sub Pop got married, she sat me at the same table as J.
    Sounds unbelievable? I suggest you look at the picture below. Now keep
    staring at that picture until... J's new acoustic
    album Tied to a Star comes out on Sub Pop Records. It features
    appearances by Ken Maiuri (Young@Heart Chorus), Pall Jenkins (Black
    Heart Procession), Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion) and Chan Marshall
    (Cat Power). Had I been in the area, I'm sure I would've been asked to
    play on it, too.

    The eighth full-length from Minnesota's Low, and their second for Sub Pop. While these songs feature new elements (looped vocals, drum machines, etc.), and are thoroughly, radiantly contemporary, they remain undeniably Low's. "Drums And Guns" possesses the unique, subtle beauty and power we've come to expect from this band, but it's also profoundly exciting in ways that are easy to forget music can be.

    More Parts Per Million

    The Thermals celebrate their 10-year anniversary by reissuing their three Sub Pop albums on vinyl. More Parts Per Million is the band's debut album, originally released by Sub Pop on March 4th, 2003. The Thermals were created in 2002 by singer Hutch Harris in his Portland-area kitchen. By that summer, they was a rock band in the flesh, with Kathy Foster on bass, Jordan Hudson on Drums and Kind of Like Spitting's Ben Barnett on the guitar. The Thermals play with a joyous frenzy not unlike the idiosyncratic guitar driven indie-punk of the Wedding Present, with lyrics spewed forth from the same oblique etherland as Guided By Voices. More Parts Per Million has sold over 12,000 copies, and the vinyl has been out of print for years. Chris Walla of Death Cab For Cutie mixed the album at The Hall of Justice studio in Seattle, WA.

    Originally recorded over three sessions with producer Jack Endino at Seattle's Reciprocal Recording Studios in December 1988 and January 1989, Bleach was released in June of 1989 and remains unequivocally and unsurprisingly Sub Pop's very favorite Nirvana full-length. The album initially sold 40,000 copies, but was brought into the international spotlight following the release and worldwide success of the group's 1991 sophomore effort, Nevermind. Subsequently, Bleach has gone on to sell 1.7 million copies in the US alone.

    8-Way Santa (Deluxe Edition)

    TAD was a mighty force in the late-'80s/early-'90s Seattle scene. Their heavy, churning rock/metal/punk buzz was a crucial part of Sub Pop's early years, and, along with peers like Mudhoney, Nirvana, and Soundgarden, they defined the sound that reinvigorated the rock world in the early '90s. TAD was led by the physically imposing yet incredibly sweet singer/guitarist TAD Doyle, with bassist Kurt Danielson (ex-Bundle of Hiss), drummer Steve Wied, and guitarist Gary Thorstensen. With an image that sometimes cast the band as deranged lumberjacks, and influence from Head of David and Killdozer, TAD put a uniquely rain-and-fog-coated Northwest spin on '80s underground rock. The band released two albums and a few EPs on Sub Pop between 1988 and 1991, all of which are now lovingly remastered by the band's friend and engineer Jack Endino (Soundgarden, Nirvana, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees) and repackaged with expansive liner notes.


    In 1991, after tens of thousands of miles on the road in support of God's Balls, and a run of powerful EPs/singles, TAD released their second full-length album, 8-Way Santa. Recorded at Smart Studios in Madison, Wisconsin with Butch Vig, whose work with Killdozer the band admired, 8-Way Santa finds TAD pushing their sound in new directions. Not a band to rest on its laurels, TAD began to add melodic touches to their sound, as evidenced by the lead single, "Jinx." Many touring dates and shows followed the record, and a pair of copyright-infringement brouhahas occurred over the original album cover - which was quickly pulled from stores when the couple portrayed in the cover photo objected - and the corporate-beverage-offending art for a 1990 EP. 8-Way Santa was the last record with the original TAD lineup, and their last album for Sub Pop before jumping to a major label

    Salt Lick (Deluxe Edition)

    TAD was a mighty force in the late-'80s/early-'90s Seattle scene. Their heavy, churning rock/metal/punk buzz was a crucial part of Sub Pop's early years, and, along with peers like Mudhoney, Nirvana, and Soundgarden, they defined the sound that reinvigorated the rock world in the early '90s. TAD was led by the physically imposing yet incredibly sweet singer/guitarist TAD Doyle, with bassist Kurt Danielson (ex-Bundle of Hiss), drummer Steve Wied, and guitarist Gary Thorstensen. With an image that sometimes cast the band as deranged lumberjacks, and influence from Head of David and Killdozer, TAD put a uniquely rain-and-fog-coated Northwest spin on '80s underground rock. The band released two albums and a few EPs on Sub Pop between 1988 and 1991, all of which are now lovingly remastered by the band's friend and engineer Jack Endino (Soundgarden, Nirvana, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees) and repackaged with expansive liner notes.


    After their 1989 debut album, God's Balls, TAD continued to write and record, releasing a string of singles and the Salt Lick EP between 1989 and 1990. Salt Lick features the single "Wood Goblins," the video for which MTV banned because it was, to the delicate eyes of MTV programmers, "too ugly." The sounds of Salt Lick are, indeed, wonderfully ugly, thanks in part to the involvement of noise-rock technician Steve Albini (Big Black, Shellac, Nirvana, The Jesus Lizard), who recorded the EP. The band continued to release singles and gain momentum in the press. As TAD himself puts it: "Lyrically we had a lot of subject matter that was meant to be tongue in cheek from the beginning but had been presented by Sub Pop and ourselves as true-to-life. As a result, the press had taken it all seriously and began to feed on and ravenously devour the mythology that we had created."

    Furr

    Furr is the fourth record by Portland sextet Blitzen Trapper and the follow-up to last year's highly acclaimed Wild Mountain Nation. Written in the gaps of the group's frenetic touring schedule and recorded mostly in an old telegraph building close to the Willamette River, the new record refines and expands on the far-ranging yet distinctive songcraft that lies at the heart of Blitzen Trapper's unique appeal. Critics and fans have compared their music to just about everything, so much that they're almost in a genre all their own. Furr is their first Sub Pop release.
