Love for Ride Your Heart

“An album as classic as its faultless ‘Thelma & Louise’-ian artwork, the universal themes of ‘Ride Your Heart’ manage to transcend the dated California girl stereotype while knowingly plugging into who still makes the myth so appealing.”NME

“Drawing on powerpop, new wave and girl group harmonies, this record is full of engaging tunes, doe-eyed dedications and wry witticisms….it’s like being a kid again and catching the first breeze that really whistles through you, tingling the skin; that really makes you question the external forces of the world, be they incidental to your daily existence or just generally driving it.”The Line Of Best Fit

“Bleached write the kind of love songs that make you want to pack up and move to California….They turn short-term heartache and temporary daydreams into breezy, economic, instantly re-playable pop-punk.” The Fader

Dead Oceans Welcomes The Good Ones, Download “Sara” Now

DOC044fullWe are very proud to welcome Rwandan folk trio, The Good Ones, to our roster today. We will be releasing their album Kigali Y’ Izahabu November 9th in the North America and November 22nd in the UK.

Download the first song off the album, “Sara” here. The fine folks over at The Fader premiered the song earlier today.

Kigali Y’ Izahabu is essentially an intimate field recording that even captures the howling and barking of dogs in the background. It was recorded by two-time Grammy-nominated producer Ian Brennan, who has worked with artists such as Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Flea, TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone and Richard Thompson.

Brennan traveled throughout Rwanda, hoping to document some of the country’s contemporary music, but up until his mission-affirming encounter with The Good Ones, he had been left wanting.

As Brennan reports: “They were standing in the dark, their eyes downcast and restless, and holding only one guitar between them. From 100-feet away, I knew instantly that there was something special about them, a feeling one is lucky to experience even once in a lifetime. By that point, I’d already visited literally every recording-studio in the capital (Kigali) and surrounding areas over two weeks and listened to hundreds of artists, but to no avail. This meeting had been set up through a mutual friend and the instant the band opened their mouths to sing, it was as if the universe reached down to tap me on the shoulder and say, ‘What these guys do is precious and rare. Don’t fuck it up.’”
