WATCH // New Artist Kevin Morby Premiers Video For “Parade”

3hhs_kmorby

We’re ecstatic to welcome Kevin Morby to Dead Oceans. From the moment we first heard his 2013 debut, Harlem River, we’ve held the deep belief that Kevin was doing something special. Frankly, we couldn’t be more excited to work with such a world class songwriter. Both Harlem River and it’s 2014 follow up, Still Life, have graced more than a few of our Best-of-the-Year lists and clocked in hours on our turntables. We’re thrilled that Kevin is currently working on his Dead Oceans debut, due in 2016. If you haven’t heard either of his albums on the always-great Woodsist label, let us know. They’re must listens!

Today you can explore NYC alongside Kevin in his new video for “Parade”. The video, directed by Elise Tyler, adds a cheerful coda to the lifestyle change (spurred by a cross-country move) Morby explored on Still Life. Tyler on the video,

‘Parade’ is a tribute to New York City – one of the many love songs artists have written for this pulsating place. The process was a complete collaboration with Kevin – he wanted to document the people and places that make up his New York. I wanted to feature the quieter places and moments that can get lost in the noise of the city, which also reflects Kevin’s nature as an artist and individual.”

Check out his tour dates below, and be sure to keep an eye out for the big things he’s cooking up.

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Portland Based Greylag Joins Dead Oceans, Shares Single “Another”, Self-Titled Album Out October 13th




“Greylag have that special something. The Portland trio plays a virtuosic Led Zeppelin III strain of folk-rock that could easily… win them fans across many musical subcultures.”

Stereogum

Today we are extremely proud to announce Portland-based trio Greylag has joined the Dead Oceans family. We first got a glimpse of the band at this year’s SXSW and have been jamming to their tunes on full blast here at Dead Oceans HQ ever since. Today, we we are excited to announce Greylag‘s self-titled debut full-length LP, Greylag, out October 14th, 2014 on Dead Oceans. 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).

Premiering this morning via Stereogum, preview the new album with track “Another” above or here on Youtube / Soundcloud.

Greylag is composed of Andrew Stonestreet, Daniel Dixon, and Brady Swan, three vastly talented musicians with incredibly different yet cohesive musical backgrounds. As for their name, the band explains “It’s a wild goose, from which all domestic geese originate, so it’s the first survivor, and it’s still wild, and doing things its own way – the ‘lag’ part refers to it being the last bird to migrate. It sits back and watches. We love the connotation.”

Stay tuned for more details and tour dates to be announced. Click read more Read the rest of this entry »
