Congratulations to Charleston's psychedelic pop group The Explorers Club for signing a record deal with Dead Oceans.
The group will release a single this fall with a full album coming in early 2008.
Here's what Dead Oceans had to say about their new friends.
"About halfway through the first song, we knew we were witnessing something special. Already having been charmed by the Explorers Club’s self-released recordings, seeing this band live was a head-over-heels moment. It was love at first sight."
We agree! Congratulations again to the band.
And as a gift from Dead Oceans, check out this free download of "Last Kiss," mixed by Stuart Sikes (Loretta Lynn, White Stripes, Cat Power). The song originally appeared on the group's UK 7 inch.
