COVID-19-related news!
As of Tuesday, March 24, 2020, following an order from the Governor of WA State...
the Sub Pop Warehouse is closed until further notice.
This means we will not be shipping out any Mega Mart orders until we're able to re-open.
You can, and we think SHOULD, please still order stuff from the Mega Mart, especially upcoming album pre-orders.
But we won't be able to ship anything until we get the all-clear to open back up.
We will provide updates as soon as we have them.
Thank you very much for what we hope to be your continued patronage. Stay safe out there, gang.

Experimental hip-hop group Clipping’s “The Deep” is a dark sci-fi tale about the underwater-dwelling descendants of African women thrown off slave ships, based on the mythology of Detroit electronic group Drexciya. The song was originally commissioned for a This American Life about Afrofuturism in 2017. The track earned Clipping a nomination for a 2018 Hugo award, and the band constructed a sound installation based on “The Deep” at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. This release comes on the heels of the November 5th release of The Deep, a novella by Rivers Solomon (with Clipping credited as co-authors) inspired by the title track and published by Saga Press. The vinyl and digital versions include two otherwise-unreleased extra tracks – including “Aquacode Databreaks,” which features Shabazz Palaces – and the vinyl edition includes instrumental versions of all three tracks.
