Sub Pop Gets With Destijl


By: Spacelab Research Staff
Seattle and Minneapolis - two tastes that taste great together. Seattle's Sub Pop Records has come to an agreement with the Minneapolis-based label Destijl to release CD versions of select titles that Destijl puts out from now on.

Rated 16 on Arthur Magazines “80 Goddamn Good Things Of 2004” by Byron Cooley and Thurston Moore, the label specializes in vinyl only releases of artists like Hototogisu, the Michael Yonkers Band, and Ed Askew. DeStijl has worked with Sub Pop before, but this is the first time they've made a formal agreement out of it.

As a matter of fact, Sub Pop's staff was so impressed with the label's good taste in artists and consistent quality, they proposed a distribution deal, saying that Destijl head Clint Simonson has "one of the most interesting and unique musical points of view in the world, not to mention phenomenal taste." He did introduce Wolf Eyes to Sub Pop, after all.

The first release under the agreement will be Hototogisu’s Chimarendammerung, due out on September 26th.
