Om Dust off that old turntable and coax it back to life with a yearlong feeding courtesy of Sub Pop Records, reviving its legendary Sub Pop Singles Club this week.

Offering a one-year subscription of 12 seven-inch singles delivered to your doorstep each month, the series kicks off with Om, with The Notwist, Blues Control, Black Lips, Black Mountain, Unnatural Helpers, and Tyvek warming up.

Rmxxology This coming Tuesday, one of dance/hip-hop's most recognizable imprints gets squished through a modern-day Play-Doh Pumper Number Nine with thick, slick, funky results. Back in the day, spotting the tasty Delicious Vinyl logo in a DJ's crate of 12-inch singles was a sign of good things to come, with a stable of artists that ranged from Masta Ace and Born Jamericans to Fatlip and Def Jef. Still kickin' up dust since 1987, the label has concocted a 15-track remix/tribute CD, RMXXOLOGY, after Peaches let the owners know she'd like to take a swipe at Tone Loc's infectious hit "Wild Thing." Highlights include Hot Chip's new imagination of The Pharcyde's "Passin' Me by" and Pink Enemy working the groove of The Brand New Heavies' "Never Stop." A RMXXOLOGY Volume 2 is in the works with influences revealed by Spank Rock, Bass Over Babylon, and DJ Medhi, as well as a worldwide tour.
