Love it. Sure Subpop was founded on the shoulder of giants like Nirvana and Soundgarden and Mudhoney, but these tracks prove that there was a whole lot more out there than Seattle based grunge. That said, Subpop definitely had a specific "sound" in its early days regardless of the band. Great stuff as always. Looking forward to the next chapters in the Subpop series.

Glad you enjoyed it, KB! More interesting music to come in this series. There’ll be a few familiar bands, but most will be of the “little-known” variety. Nuggets from the Golden Age of indie rock!
