We all know and love Subpop, I guess via their little manifesto, they feel that RSD exclusives aren’t their jam. In fairness they have been around way before RSD putting our limited badass records. So I figure they deserve the right to feel cooler than RSD. Credit where credit’s due.
This compilation celebrates their 25 years of world domination. Badass artwork, badass vinyl, music – I don’t know, giving it my first listen on pitchfork right now. It certainly starts off by bringing the heat. Take a listen, let us know your thoughts. It’s a little unexpected that a compilation from subpop only sports one band I even know (peaking lights), but that’s probably a good thing, as I should probably know of these bands.
Sub Pop 1000 will be a one-time pressing of 5,000 on tricked-out colored vinyl, with cover art by Nathan Fox, a 16-page booklet and an MP3 download coupon. Sub Pop 1000 will be available at your local record store on 4/20/2013 (aka Record Store Day, though Sub Pop 1000 is NOT a Record Store Day exclusive), through this here Sub Pop Internet Shopping Place and at our 25th anniversary Silver Jubilee on July 13th. It‚Äôs also available digitally, for whatever THAT‚ÄôS worth.
