ALBUM RELEASE // Ryley Walker ‘Primrose Green’ Out Now Worldwide, European Tour Starts 8th April

“This is clearly someone reaching for their essence, on a mission to follow a philosophy rather than to slavishly recreate a mood.”
-Uncut (9/10)

‘Primrose Green’ sounds exactly like late-’60s Tim Buckley. I can only assume that Paul Rothchild manned the boards and Van Dyke Parks rolled the joints while this was being recorded.”
- Grantland

“With ‘Primrose Green’, Walker has developed into a thoughtful singer-songwriter following a tangled thread, one picked at by the likes of Tim Buckley, John Martyn, Van Morrison…”
- NPR Music

Primrose Green, the debut album from Chicago’s six-string wunderkind Ryley Walker is out now worldwide. To celebrate release day, Ryley plays an in-store at Permanent Records in Chicago tonight at 7pm with more info here: http://www.permanentrecordschicago.com/

ALBUM RELEASE // Greylag Self-Titled Debut Album Out Now Worldwide, EU Tour Starts Nov. 11th




“They seem like an antidote handed down from God to shut up certain people who like to complain that they just don’t make rock bands like they used to”

- Stereogum ["Band To Watch"]

Portland-based trio Greylag joined the Dead Oceans family back in July. We first got a glimpse of the band at this year’s SXSW and today their self-titled debut full-length LP, Greylag, is out now worldwide on Dead Oceans (UK release Nov. 3rd). Recorded with Phil Ek (Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Modest Mouse, The Shins) at Seattle’s Avast Studio, Greylag is a followup to the band’s 2012 seven-track EP The Only Way To Kill (Ninth Street Opus).

Greylag is out now via SC Distribution (deluxe bundle) iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

Critics agree:

“Another’ is the first track on Greylag’s tremendously appealing self-titled debut (due out October 14), and it sets the tone for the record’s catchy and briskly strummed mini epics… the widescreen majesty of this music is decidedly rock”

- Grantland

“the trio string together various bits of ’60s rock influences: mountain-man harmonies that echo Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, gentle acoustic guitars ala John Fahey and early-day Lindsey Buckingham, and even a tinge of Led Zeppelin swagger. The result is a resoundingly confident preview that is both earnest and sweeping.”

- Consequence of Sound

“From its opening chords, the album…conjures up potent sounds of Led Zeppelin’s acoustic side”

- The Oregonian

“Greylag’s wanderlusting, exploratory sound is a perfect fit for Dead Oceans”

- Portland Mercury
