About the Sub Pop Singles Club
Intermittently, since 1988, Sub Pop has roped artists into letting us release a couple of their songs on the 7” vinyl format, resulting in releases by Nirvana, Soundgarden, L7, The White Stripes, Bright Eyes, and a ton more. We then shipped these singles to people who had the forethought to subscribe, in advance, to the Singles Club. Many of these singles have since become very rare and sought-after. (Ok, so a few haven’t, but who’s counting?) Most recently, we somehow pulled off the Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 4, running from April 2019-February 2020 (and totally closed for subscriptions since February, so don’t ask!). You can hear many of the past Singles Club releases via the Sub Pop Singles Club Playlist.
The Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 5 will keep this fine tradition of excellent new music and logistical headaches going for yet another year. These singles are one-time, limited pressings with exclusive tracks by each artist. Subscribe now or assuredly regret later!
What do you get with a subscription? Approximately 24 amazing, exclusive songs by your new favorite musicians! Artists confirmed so far include Julian Jacklin, Redd Kross, Guerilla Toss, Father John Misty, Ohmme, Sumac, Y La Bamba, Clarke and the Himselfs, L.O.T.I.O.N. Multinational Corporation, and TEKE::TEKE. More TBA! 12 vinyl 7” singles pressed by our friends at Third Man Pressing, with artful packaging lovingly designed by the musicians and the Sub Pop art department! A nice box to store them all in! An official Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 5 membership card! Coolness! Conversation pieces! Things to have and hold over people who don’t have them!
