Akron/Family Release Epic New Video for “Silly Bears.” New Album Out Today!

The wait is over, after all the random packages, cryptic messages, and transmissions from the great beyond, Akron/Family’s new album S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT is now available in stores.

In celebration we are excited to share a properly epic new video for Akron/Family’s “Silly Bears.” Directed by Matt Brunson, the new video is filled with robots, time warps, airplanes, horses, and of course plenty of silly bears. Part Rubik’s Cube, part Time Bandits, this video is the perfect visual reckoning of the opening track from Akron/Family’s new album. Check out a short Q&A about the video with Akron/Family’s Miles Seaton on Spin Magazine’s website HERE. Akron/Family starts their North American tour Feb. 17, with dates in Europe to follow in May. You can check out Akron/Family’s full tour schedule HERE.

“So It Goes” Says Akron/Family

Today we are happy to release a new mp3 and video for “So It Goes” the first single from Akron/Family’s new album S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT.

“So It Goes’” bawdily soulful psych-bounce maps the journey home of an open heart turned halfway cold by a climate all too often suspicious of simple kindness and sincerity. The vocals testify with raw beauty and wry confidence over a groove both surly and sexy. The riff is oh so sticky, and the whole boat seems to sway with abandon while Upsetters-style backup singers keep you swaying in agreement…and just then the wind picks up and tosses you into the classic Vonnegut-nodding refrain of “so it goes,” echoing out and carrying you through into a coda that sounds like it could have been copped right off one of the early Ak CDR releases – all sweetness and color and contrapuntal dreaminess. It’s an epic 2:36, and it’s just the first taste of the fractal wonders to come.

New Video: Citay’s “Dream Get Together”

Citay has just released a new video for the title track off of their new album Dream Get Together. It features their hometown of San Francisco prominently, as the band busks in Chinatown and drives around sight-seeing all the while keeping their mighty three guitar assault comin’ at cha. We also get a sneak peak into Citay’s practice space, and how much fun Citay’s practices must be! Very dreamy, very San Francsico, very Citay. And a special shout-out to long time Citay member Tahlia Harbour, who is playing her final show with Citay tonight at Cafe Du Nord in San Francisco. She’s added a special element to the band over the last few years with her angelic pipes and musical talent. She will be missed, and everybody here at Dead Oceans wishes her well in her new endeavours! Citay has a few more dates left on their current West Coast tour. Full dates are below.

06/03 San Francisco, CA @ Cafe Du Nord w/ Barn Owl and The Sarees

BISHOP ALLEN Share Dazzling New Video for “True or False”

Dead Oceans is proud to present BISHOP ALLEN’S new video for “True or False.” Featuring lead vocals from Darbie Nowatka Rice, this standout track from Grrr… adapts perfectly to the static-y black and white television set, harkening back to the days of the Ed Sullivan show. Directed by Randy Bell and featuring choreography from Andrea Delmonico, Bishop Allen’s run of amazing videos continues with “True or False.”

Bishop Allen are currently on tour with Throw Me the Statue and Darwin Deez. Although we cannot promise dancing girls on stage, hopefully “True or False” does provide some inspiration for audience members to shake it at these shows. See the full list of tour dates HERE.
