Recent Songs from Subpop

Subpop is a label that’s been pretty cool about MP3s. They give away one download per release, and they put it out there at the same time they send out the promos. It’s a smart idea, of course, since it allows fans to hear a song and get excited about an upcoming release.

Pissed Jeans – “People Person” from Hope For Men, out now.

Jennifer Gentle – “Take My Hand” from The Midnight Room, out now.

Handsome Furs – “Cannot Get, Started” from Plague Park, out now.

Kinski – “Punching Goodbye Out Front” from Down Below It’s Chaos, out now.

Flight of the Conchords – “Business Time” from The Distant Future EP, out now.

Arthur & Yu – “There Are Too Many Birds” from In Camera, out now.

Band of Horses – “Is There a Ghost” from Cease to Begin, out October 9.
