Track three of twelve taken from the EP 'Fiction'.

We recommend this title for people interested in the likes of Sunny Day Real Estate, Dinosaur Jr., Speedy Ortiz and Cat Power. Emo // Sub-Pop Records early 90's vibes.

'Known Weed Smoker' was originally released by Pope through Community Records (USA) on both digital format and physical cassette tape on 10/11/2013.

'Fiction' was originally released by Pope through Funeral Sounds (USA) on both digital format and physical mediums such as vinyl and cassette on 10/03/2015.

Both records were then merged and released in the UK on digital formats and exclusive physical cassette tape by Hail Hail Records on 18/11/2016 under the serial number - Hail Hail Records HHR-POP-001.

"In this dysfunctional process they create a record that is altogether nostalgic while all the while innovative. Their comfort in playing around with confusing dichotomy is evident in songs like “Will Taylor” and “Bug”; fluid rhythms, whispered vocals and melodic confidence allow Pope the space to be referential while, for lack of better term, groovy." - Funeral Sounds (US).
