AKRON/FAMILY 7-inch Single Available for Pre-Order

A new 7-inch single from AKRON/FAMILY is now available for pre-order. “River” is the second single from Akron/Family’s 2009 release, Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free. Like the “Everyone is Guilty” 7-inch, “River” features an exclusive non-album b-side, the lovely “Morning on Michigan Avenue (Thinking of Old Friends).” Strictly limited edition, we advise scoring one of these slabs of vinyl now.

The single is set for an October 20 release, but pre-order is available HERE.

JOHN VANDERSLICE Releases New 7″ With Pre-Order Download, Offers Demo MP3

The centerpiece of JOHN VANDERSLICE’S Romanian Names, the perfect pop gem “Too Much Time,” is now being released as a limited-edition 7″ on October 6th. The song received Song Of the Day honors by NPR, whose critics called Romanian Names “his best record yet.” The single features the infectious exclusive b-side “Moon Rocks,” a song that fits neatly alongside Romanian Names. All pre-orders of the 7″ will receive an instant download of both “Too Much Time” and “Moon Rocks.” Click HERE to pre-order the Too Much Time 7″.

Dead Oceans is also proud to share an unreleased track from JV. “Too Much Time” began as a demo with JV’s vocal melodies soaring simply over synthesizers, and we are happy to share this awesome alternate version with the internet. Click HERE for the demo version of “Too Much Time.”

JV, traveling this week to perform at the Austin City Limits Festival, will be performing in the UK and across Europe this October and November. See the full tour HERE.

AKRON/FAMILY Announce Exclusive Record Store Day 7″ and download for “Everyone Is Guilty”

“Everyone is Guilty” is the first single from AKRON/FAMILY’S upcoming May 5th full-length release, Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free. Featuring album opener “Everyone is Guilty” along with non-album b-side “Total Destruction,” this single is available as a limited edition 7″ and digital release. The vinyl will be available at Akron/Family shows and via record stores participating in Record Store Day 2009.

Opening with a groove unlike anything Akron/Family have ever laid to tape, this single kicks off a new chapter for the band. The percussive thunder and anthemic electric guitars of “Everyone is Guilty” make a bold statement, touching on everything from Fela Kuti to Sly and the Family Stone in under six psychedelic minutes. This is not the Akron/Family you think you know.

Meanwhile, Akron/Family is about to kick off a tour surrounding some soon-to-be legendary appearances at SXSW. Peep a full listing HERE.
