About Sub Pop Records/Hardly Art:
Founded in 1988, Sub Pop Records is an independent label based in Seattle, WA. Often associated with the “grunge movement” of the early 90s, Sub Pop continues to extend its tentacles of pervasive global cultural influence from this somewhat dank upper left corner of the United States.
Often referred to as a “sister label” to Sub Pop, Hardly Art is an offshoot of Sub Pop designed to shine a light on emerging talent. While the label’s initial focus was local when it was founded in 2007, its roster now includes artists from around the world, encompassing the sounds of garage rock, post-punk, surf rock, power pop, music electronics and other questionable genre descriptors.
