Remember a few months ago we launched our monthly subscription service, Boombox? Well, since then our subscribers have been hand-delivered digital albums from FIDLAR, Wavves and Polica, have been offered exclusive access to singles from Polica, Beat Club, and Smith Westerns, and have received brand new digital EPs from Neon Indian and Kid Astray before any else has even had a look in… and Boombox is only just getting started.
We have a lot of exciting stuff up our sleeves for the rest of the year, and we wanted to give you guys a taster of everything we’ve been working on (because we feel selfish keeping it all to ourselves). Head over to our Soundcloud player to stream the first installment of what will be a semi-regular compilation series from Mom+Pop, this time featuring singles from Jagwar Ma, Polica, Flume, Neon Indian, Hunters, FIDLAR, Wavves, Kid Astray, Mikhael Paskalev, Beat Club, Animal Kingdom, Smith Westerns, Andrew Bird, and Lucius. Phew!
Following his surprise guest appearance during their Coachella performance, Polica have officially announced a that their brand new single ‘Tiff’ features a guest appearance from none other than Justin Vernon.
You can relive the joint Coachella performance here if you weren’t lucky enough catch the show for yourself (or, if you just damn well want to see it one more time), and the single can now be streamed in full over on Polica’s Soundcloud page.
‘Tiff’ is available to purchase now via iTunes, and keep your eyes peeled for a full LP coming from Polica later this year. Exciting!
Exciting news — Today we’ve launched our shiny new subscription service, Boombox! Through Boombox, you’ll receive a digital download of every Mom+Pop release, plus a whole bunch of super exclusive 7″ vinyl, all delivered straight to your door (/inbox) on a monthly basis. It’s basically going to feel like your birthday, but without that pesky 12-month wait between each event.
Sign up now and you’ll receive an immediate digital download of Wavves ‘Afraid of Heights’, FIDLAR ‘FIDLAR’, and Beat Club ‘Something Better EP’. The first 300 subscribers will also receive a Boombox tote bag, plus vinyl copies of Metric ‘Synthetica’, Sleigh Bells ‘Reign of Terror’, and one more randomly selected vinyl from the Mom+Pop discography — we’ll choose it when we pack up your order, pretty mysterious and exciting, right? As for that exclusive 7″ vinyl we mentioned, so far we can confirm forthcoming releases from Smith Westerns, Polica, Neon Indian, Beat Club, and Twin Peaks.
Those of you who sign up in April will receive all of the above for only $9.99 this month, reverting to the usual $12.99 for the subsequent months.
Quick disclosure: This is not an April Fools joke, we really are that generous.
