After eight years, 57 releases, and a successful kickstarter, the purveyor of soft and sweet indiepop music WeePOP! Records is closing shop today. To celebrate, they've put together a retrospective mix in two parts for your enjoyment: Part 1 and Part 2. posted by vibratory manner of working (7 comments total) 15 users marked this as a favorite
Never heard of this label before but I'm enjoying the mixes - light, twee, lo-fi, fun! Wish there was a download option.

Just Joans?? On my metafilter?!?!?

Great FPP! As one of WeePOP!s' many fans, may I just say I highly recommend the label in general.

It's like Harriet Records never left us!

This is really amazing. But I can't seek backwards and I can't see the names of tracks that have already played! What's the one that goes "We were on the marquee for all to see... never mind, never mind"?

I also should mention that's there's a several bundles still going on their shop, but that should be closing up sometime today, so if you're into it, now's your chance.

I really love this label, and I'm pretty sad to see it go.

I sheepishly admit I've been off the indiepop for awhile now but I'll have to listen to this for old time's sake. Allo Darlin' though, they're the best, I love them to pieces (if you ever get a chance to see them live, they're a real treat).
