Featuring J. Mascis, Blitzen Trapper, Lower Dens, MemoryHouse, Fleet Foxes, Dum Dum Girls, Mogwai and more, it’s a great introduction to their current roster — which I guess is the idea.
Terminal Sales Vol. 4: Please to Enjoy! is packaged in an embossed, die cut case with 18 art prints — one for each of the artists — and a folded poster. And according to Sub Pop, it’s a gift to you, indie music fan. That’s right, free. As they explain, it’s the capitalism of Record Store Day that prompts such generosity:
“Typical observance of this holiday includes the traditional very-early-in-the-day snatching up of the many exclusive and limited-edition releases offered for Record Store Day, and the also seemingly traditional not-very-much-later-in-the-day selling of these same releases on internet auction websites for greatly inflated prices.”
So good on ya, Sub Pop. Now, how many of these will be available at your local participating Record Store Day record store.. who knows. Good thing you can stream it right now via the Sub Pop soundcloud:
