Though no one would likely ever guess it from watching what we’ll broadly refer to as “Music Television,” we at Sub Pop have, over the past several years, made quite a few music videos. Some of them are even pretty good! Not at all coincidentally, those are the videos we’ve opted to include here. There are 25 of them in all, ranging from the first video Sub Pop made for The Shins’ “New Slang” back in 2001 (featuring, in the recreation of (part of) the cover of Sonic Youth’s Sister, a near-glimpse of Marty’s bush) through Mudhoney’s video for “It Is Us” (which, is so new as to not even be finished as I type this). Also found here are such gems as the best, yet least-seen Hot Hot Heat video (“No Not Now”), that Constantines video with the raccoons and the peanut butter (“Nighttime/Anytime”), the original versions Chad VanGaalen did (he’s an animator too!) both for his own “Clinically Dead,” and for Love as Laughter’s “Dirty Lives.” And, to take the mystery out of the usually purposefully vague category of SO MUCH MORE: Wolf Parade, Ugly Casanova, Rogue Wave, The Thermals, The Album Leaf, The Helio Sequence, Fruit Bats, Rosie Thomas, Low, Jennifer Gentle, Kinski, The Elected, and 2 each from Sleater-Kinney, Iron & Wine, The Shins, and The Postal Service.
