To celebrate twenty years of providing a home to some of the most seminal underground music in history, Sub Pop Records is throwing a party. Taking place on July 12 and 13th in their native Seattle, the label will gather former and present acts for the SP20 Festival. Leading the charge are old school favorites Mudhoney, the Fluid and a reunion of Green River (which features members of Pearl Jam, Mudhoney and Love Battery) and new schoolers Wolf Parade, Iron & Wine, Flight of the Conchords and No Age. The label will also host a comedy festival featuring Patton Oswalt, Eugene Mirman and Todd Barry. Sub Pop also plans on reissuing some of their greatest hits, with Mudhoney's Superfuzz Bigmuff the first to get the deluxe treatment.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
