Sub Pop SeaTacSub Pop is a record label founded in 1986 by Bruce Pavitt and Jonathan Poneman in Seattle, Washington.
Sub Pop achieved fame in the late 1980s for first signing Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney and many other bands from the Seattle music scene. They are often credited with taking the first steps toward popularizing grunge music, and have continued to achieve critical and commercial success in the new millennium, with bands such as Fleet Foxes, Foals, Beach House, The Postal Service, Flight of the Conchords, No Age, Wolf Parade and The Shins on their roster. 

Sub Pop launches new retail concept store in Seattle Tacoma Airport (story here)

Sub Pop’s long-standing motto, “Spanning the Globe for Profit”, became more true than ever before this May as they opened the doors to a first-of-its-kind retail space in the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The Sub Pop Airport Store (working-title-turned-seemingly-actual-title) is a mix of the classic Sub Pop Mega Mart and a Pacific Northwest-centric gift shop. Sub Pop collaborated with designers, artists, and companies who also call the Pacific Northwest home and created a vast array of brand new Sub Pop and PNW-related wares currently available exclusively (for now) at the Sub Pop Airport Store.

Broadtime was honored when approached by Sub Pop to create an instore listening experience to match the whole ethos of their iconic brand and store.  We knew that Sub Pop's customers would be looking for an exciting, fun way to discover and further explore the fantastic selection of media at the store. Broadtime BPM stations provide the perfect platform to deliver that experience along with Sub Pop's marketing message. It has been an incredible opportunity to be part of this thrilling venture and we are proud that our BPM stations are now part of a new Seattle Landmark.

New Release Round-Up 05-19-14

Coldplay's sixth record Ghost Stories sees them return to the stripped-back sound that preceded the colorful pop of 2011's Mylo Xyloto. The first single, Midnight, is a sparse electronic affair that could be likened to the expansive music of Bon Iver, while sharing distinct similarities with the style of track producer and Viva la Vida collaborator Jon Hopkins'. The album was recorded at their own North London studios The Bakery & the Beehive with an impressive group of producers including Paul Epworth, Rik Simpson, and Daniel Green.

For Record Store Day R.E.M. provided one of the most sought after releases in the form of their 4LP set of their two Unplugged Sessions.  Now they follow that up with the 2-CD release of Unplugged: The Complete 1991 and 2001 Sessions including every performance from the original 1991 and 2001 broadcasts, as well as 11 songs that never aired.

Childish Gambino - because the internetThe Vinyl edition of Childish Gambino's sophomore full-length album because the internet was originally released as part of Record Store Day 2014 and soon became the top-selling Vinyl release of the week. The album is a brutally emotional concept piece that draws you in deeper with each listen.  Because the Internet features guest appearances from Chance The Rapper, Jhene Aiko and Azealia Banks, with production handled by Gambino himself, Christian Rich, Thundercat and Ludwig Goransson among others. The album which is beautifully packaged with a metallic o-card (sleeve), printed inner sleeves and a 72-page screenplay is available now and you can preview the album here as well as watch the video for the track 3005.

The Long Goodbye is the complete, unabridged recording of LCD Soundsystem's near-four-hour April 2, 2011 farewell show at New York's Madison Square Garden. Produced and mixed by LCD founder and frontman, James Murphy. The Long Goodbye is the ultimate audio document of LCD Soundsystem's now legendary final show. The album's exclusive mix brings new life to every note of music played during the epic MSG show- including of course the performances featured in the acclaimed film, Shut Up and Play The Hits, which chronicled the concert by painting an intimate portrait of Murphy navigating its lead-up and aftermath.

Platinum-selling recording artist and AMERICAN IDOL Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips releases his second album Behind The Light. Recorded in New York City, Behind The Light was produced by Gregg Wattenberg and includes Phillips new singles Raging Fire and Fly.

Plus there are other great, new releases including American hip hop legends The Roots who unleash their eleventh studio album …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin. The band describe the album as a satirical look at violence in hip hop and American society overall. There is the fantastic looking soundtrack to the highly anticipated movie The Fault In Our Stars which features tracks from some of the biggest artists of the moment including Ed Sheeran, Jake Bugg, Grouplove, Tom Odell, Ray LaMontagne and M83. Singer-songwriter Conor Oberst releases his debut album for Nonesuch Records, Upside Down MountainThe Doors now make their legendary, long out-of-print compilation Weird Scenes Inside The Gold Mine available for the first time as a 2-CD set.  Canadian Folk band The Duhks are in the best form of their 13 year career with their new album Beyond The Blue.  The classic debut album from Britpop heroes Oasis is celebrated in various deluxe forms as Definately Maybe celebrates its 20th Anniversary. And In July-August 1987, after 100 shows around the world on The Bridge Tour, Billy Joel accepted the Kremlin's invitation to the U.S.S.R. for six fully-staged rock shows in Moscow and Leningrad, fulfilling a long-time desire to perform in Russia.  For the first time, A Matter Of Trust The Bridge To Russia: The Music presents an expanded version of what fans heard over a quarter-century ago.
