John Vanderslice Signs with Dead Oceans for New Album

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff


John Vanderslice has signed with the label Dead Oceans for the release of his new album, Romanian Names. He recently performed new music from the release at a show in San Francisco and there's a video for it.

 

A statement from the label talks about their response to their first listen.

 

"Thirty seconds into the song, Phil was in a different place altogether. This was unlike any Vanderslice recording he had heard before. This song was, as far as he (Dead Oceans owner Phil Waldorf) could tell, the best tune Vanderslice had ever written, and it needed a home. Gone were thoughts of a terrible flight. Rather than mumbling banal and boring missives about how badly travel sucks, he and his partner were lucky to have one of those great conversations about how they had to be involved with this new thing, this new discovery: John Vanderslice’s new album."

 

John Vanderslice was equally excited, saying "In the fall of 2007 I played shows with Bishop Allen and Bowerbirds. I was already in love with both bands. By the end of the tour I had fallen hard for their label, Dead Oceans. I had known Phil for a few years and I deeply respected his taste in music. When he joined the Secretly Canadian / Jagjaguwar family, I started to pay close attention. I am honored to be in the game with these people! They are passionate, aware, loyal and SERIOUS."

 

The album Romanian Names is scheduled for release on May 19th.
