We are excited to finally publicly welcome Dub Thompson to the Dead Oceans family! Today they announce a new album 9 songs coming out June 10th. The band, Matt Pulos on guitar and Evan Laffer on drums, recorded the album with Foxygen‘s Jonathan Rado at a rented house here in our hometown of Bloomington, Indiana. With no one song on the album the same, the two simultaneously draw from many predecessors including Can and Kraftwerk, Big Black, Pere Ubu, and more.
“Most everyone who’s in a group who’s our age lives on the Internet,” says 19-year old Pulos. “The kinds of things that have shaped our band aren’t anchored to any one time or place.”
Get acquainted with these talented dudes by watching the video above for their rollicking and slightly psychedelic debut single “Dograces” directed by Robert Beatty.
