Jagjaguwar Records have signed Portland band Unknown Mortal Orchestra, in a week of numerous indie label signings (here and here) including Jagjaguwar sister label Dead Oceans. As for Unknown Mortal Orchestra, they'll roll along a common approach: unveil a 7" single with “Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)” with the b-side “Waves of Confidence.” Check out “Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)” above, if you dig it, it's available on their tour (starting today) that also includes dates in October and December, leaving November open for, say ... working on the new album that arrives next year. Tour dates are in support of Grizzly Bear and include a show with Dirty Projectors.

Dead Oceans sums up their psych-meets-soul approach by saying "Timeless pop hooks are produced with a soft buzzsaw edge so that the effect is akin to Stevie Wonder producing Plastic Ono Band into Nuggets-like gems."
