Sub Pop Revives Its Singles Club
You can now subscribe to "the fourth – and, who knows, perhaps the best! – incarnation"
Published Nov 01, 2018Many of today's vinyl fanatics are able to get their fix through record clubs like Vinyl Me, Please or Third Man Records' Vault, but those who stuck by the format through the '90s and beyond will now be able to get in on a fourth edition of the Sub Pop Singles Club.
Today, the label announced plans to revive the club for "the fourth – and, who knows, perhaps the best! – incarnation," promising "lots of great music" and "some highly sought-after rarities." The singles in question will only be available through the service and will not be available in stores.
Upon subscribing, Sub Pop will deliver a dozen 7-inch singles to your door starting in April 2019. The records "will feature exclusive tracks by artists from all over the map, both literally and figuratively, but tied together by the common thread of being great at what they do and inspiring to us."
Sub Pop's first launched the Singles Club alongside the label itself, with releases featuring music from Nirvana, Soundgarden, Sonic Youth, Fugazi, L7 and more.
The series was then revived for second and third editions, running from 1998 to 2002 and from 2008 to 2009, respectively. Those years featured singles with music from Iron and Wine, Bright Eyes, the White Stripes, Death Cab for Cutie, Jesus and Mary Chain, the Get Up Kids, the Dutchess and the Duke, Om, Thee Oh Sees and more.
