ALBUM RELEASE // Night Beds “Ivywild” Available Worldwide


“In an age where white male singer/songwriter types are five to a dime, Yellen is a true rarity: a singer with both an astounding voice and a unique style… This album takes on the more fleshed out arrangements of its predecessor and blows them up to proportions no one could have seen coming.”
PopMatters

“the perfect, airy mixture of Fleet Foxes and Beach House… Yellen’s transition toward the electronic side of things will yield the same gorgeous results as his Americana past.”
Stereogum

After streaming in full over the past week via NPR Music First Listen, Night Beds’ triumphant new album, Ivywild, is finally out today on Dead Oceans. Drawing on Winston Yellen’s original love of Bill Evans through to J Dilla, Ivywild is a truly collaborative effort with a makeshift team of 25 musicians, notably Abe Yellen, Winston’s younger brother and closest friend.

To celebrate the release of Ivywild, the brothers Yellen are sharing the Strangers In Paradise Mixtape, a collection of Abe’s beats, a few Ivywild b-sides and an assortment of tracks that were in heavy rotation in the studio during the making of the album.

Stream the Strangers In Paradise Mixtape above and catch Night Beds performing songs from Ivywild at the Bardot in Los Angeles next Monday, August 10th for School Night!.

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 »

EP ANNOUNCE // Bleached Share 7″ EP ‘For The Feel’ Details, Listen To Title Track, Tour This Summer



Summer is her again which means Bleached is back with a new 7″ EP called For The Feel coming out digitally July 22nd / physically September 16th on Dead Oceans. You can listen to the title track from the EP via Stereogum premiere above or on Soundcloud / YouTube.

Pre-order the EP via SC Distribution, iTunes, or your local record store.

From the band, “For The Feel is a song we originally wrote for our full length but it didn’t sound right once recorded so we held off on putting it on the record. Finally when it came down to recording it again we were really inspired by the sound of The Kinks, we even used The Kinks amp. I’m really glad we waited to release this song because now it’s perfect”
