Mudhoney sign to Sub Pop Publishing!

It is our honor to announce the unsurprising yet monumentally significant news that we have signed a comprehensive deal with Seattle’s Mudhoney. The deal encompasses the entire 30-year catalog of a band that is rightly credited as a pioneer, if not the primary architect of something called "The Grunge Movement." Mudhoney’s catalog of songs includes such peerless classics as "Touch Me I'm Sick," "Suck You Dry," "In 'n' Out of Grace," and "Good Enough," and they will have a new record out in 2018.

Sera Cahoone announces The Flora String Session EP!

The Flora String Sessions revisits some of Cahoone’s most beloved fan favorites from across her remarkable career, with just her starkly honest vocals and guitar plus violin, viola, and cello. It’s somewhat of a greatest hits collection, albeit with more intimate, stunningly beautiful arrangements by Led to Sea violist Alex Guy.

She also today debuted ''Baker Lake'' via Uproxx and announced a short tour in support of the release.

The band have decided to make lemonade, though, and are playing a replacement show at The Echo in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 17th!
