2009 collection of post-Galaxie 500 recordings by two-thirds of that legendary Alt-Rock band. Compiling the best of Damon & Naomi's records over the course of four albums on the venerable Sub Pop label, the Sub Pop Years commemorates a grand chapter in the career of a band who never planned an existence in the first place. After More Sad Hits, the duo was ready to call it a day and concentrate on their book company. However, they were convinced to continue onward by Sub Pop poobah Jonathan Poneman, who saw great potential in their continued collaboration. It was not the first time (nor last) his hunch proved right. For the next 10 years, Damon & Naomi developed from a simple recording project to a fully fleshed-out band, with a knack for articulating sounds and accumulating collaborators that continues today. 15 tracks.
