The Good Ones featured in New York Times, Spinner features on Indie Rock and African Artists

DOC044

Earlier this month, Steve Hochman speculated that the first big trend of 2011 could be “Indie Labels Going Global on a World Music Trek.” Hochman was among the first to write on The Good Ones in his Around the World column for Spinner, upon the November release of Kigali Y’ Izahabu.

And in Sunday’s New York Times, Larry Rohter wrote another great piece, “Indie Rock Embraces an African Invasion.” Rohter interviews head of Dead Oceans Phil Waldorf and draws on other emerging acts such as BLK JKS (on our sister label Secretly Canadian), Sidi TourĂ© and Tinariwen. No other story is quite like that of The Good Ones, and we’re so happy to see such fantastic reads on it.
