Dead Oceans (record label) Rules.





I ordered a bunch of crap from them (crap meaning STUFF, not crap meaning, bad stuff) mostly because I wanted the new Phosphorescent. While I was at it I grabbed a couple of other things that I've been liking in the past year... The Explorers Club "Freedom Wind" LP and Bowerbirds "Hymns for a Dark Horse" LP. They threw in a Tren Brothers 7 inch and I had never heard of the Tren Brothers before. Side A was "Gone Away" and the flip was "Kit's Choice". Let me tell you, they are a label after my own heart because this random 7 inch they threw in there sounds just like Dirty Three and as everyone well knows... Dirty Three put out perhaps the best record in history, "Ocean Songs" and that is what I love about cute, great labels like Dead Oceans, they have NONSTOP QUALITY ARTISTS:

Akron/Family
Bishop Allen
Bowerbirds
Citay
Dirty Projectors
The Donkeys
Evangelicals
The Explorers Club
John Vanderslice
Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band
Phosphorescent
These Are Powers
White Hinterland

to name a few.

AND the other good thing about labels like Dead Oceans is the little fun things like an extra 7 inch here and there... or a sticker. Amazon.com ain't sendin no little treats.

If you have never heard of Dirty Three, go listen to their music NOW.

Prepare for your soul to be crushed.
