ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Dub Thompson ’9 Songs’ Out 6/10, Watch “Dograces” Video Directed By Robert Beatty


We are excited to finally publicly welcome Dub Thompson to the Dead Oceans family! Today they announce a new album 9 songs coming out June 10th. The band, Matt Pulos on guitar and Evan Laffer on drums, recorded the album with Foxygen‘s Jonathan Rado at a rented house here in our hometown of Bloomington, Indiana. With no one song on the album the same, the two simultaneously draw from many predecessors including Can and Kraftwerk, Big Black, Pere Ubu, and more.

“Most everyone who’s in a group who’s our age lives on the Internet,” says 19-year old Pulos. “The kinds of things that have shaped our band aren’t anchored to any one time or place.”

Get acquainted with these talented dudes by watching the video above for their rollicking and slightly psychedelic debut single “Dograces” directed by Robert Beatty.

Pre-order the album on iTunes, your local record store, and through SC Distribution.

WATCH // Mark McGuire Shares New “The Human Condition (Song For My Father)” Video Via Noisey, Plays SXSW Next Week

Today Noisey premiered Mark McGuire‘s video for “The Human Condition (Song For My Father)”.

Here’s Mark on the story behind the song and video:
“[it's] about looking at the aspects of yourself that are hard to accept, but cannot be ignored. It’s about the heartbreak and neuroses that lie underneath the rug of all human relationships, and the attempt to resolve and overcome these issues, striving toward personal harmony.

“The song is dedicated to my father, who is an undeniable influence on my chemical makeup, and a huge influence on this album. It contains audio samples of a “celebrity roast” his family held in his honor in 1989. First he is caught off-guard and begins to prepare himself to be roasted, stating “I gotta get that plastic smile on…”

“Like many of our family events of that time, the roast was filmed by my uncle. For the music video I edited together some of the footage from that night; beginning with his entrance and general shock, all the way through dinner and various roasters, including a slideshow done that night by my grandfather, John Ryan McGuire. I also infused images of my family from my album Living with Yourself, a few clips I’ve filmed in the past couple of years, and some stock images of deep space, to further illustrate the cosmic properties of the family unit, and the inner personal temple.”

Mark’s new album Along The Way is out now worldwide. See him perform at SXSW next week with all dates and times here.
