LOVE FOR MUCHACHO

“Accordingly, listening to Muchacho often feels like being warmed by afternoon sun as it floods your window. Every sound is lovingly recorded and given a cradle of space…It’s a place where well-worn sounds are the most beloved, where ideas and poses are settled into like old chairs. On ‘Muchacho,’ Houck invests this world with new beauty and profundity.”Pitchfork, named BEST NEW MUSIC

“Phosphorescent is a Brooklyn band that hasn’t forgotten its Southern pedigree, creating washy psychedelia with a foothold in country-rock.”New York Times

“…the sixth album from Houck is heartfelt and forlorn. Be prepared to fall in love again.”Bowlegs Music

“‘Muchacho’ is a record which can soothe even the darkest nights and moods.”This Is Fake DIY

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 Touré 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.

ON FILLMORE’S Extended Vacation Released Today, Highlighted In The New York Times

Today, the “rhythm section’s revenge” otherwise known as ON FILLMORE, the collaboration of Wilco’s Glenn Kotche and bassist Darin Gray, release unto the world their sultry, lovely Dead Oceans’ debut, Extended Vacation. The album is a confusing and comforting journey that features moody vibes, noir-film bass approaches, jungle predators, exotic birdcalls and ominous, rattling war drums. Don’t you think you deserve a little vacay?

This week, Extended Vacation was featured in The New York Times’ Sunday Playlist, in which critic Nate Chinen said of the piece: “It all suggests a peculiar update of early-1960s exotica, with a heart of darkness in place of a setting sun.” Read the entire review HERE.
