Story by: Kevin Kampwirth
The owners of the Bloomington, Indiana-based Secretly Canadian and Jagjaguwar labels have announced the creation of a new sticker, Dead Oceans, which will retain the same staff and creative aesthetic as the other two. A statement by the group noted that, "Dead Oceans will focus on bold and timeless recordings, not emphasizing a particular genre or scene, but instead fostering a diverse stable of sound creators." An initial roster of artists has also been released, including new records by Iran, Dirty Projectors, Evangelicals and Bishop Allen.
