So much news tonight!
So Pitchfork has made the announcement the Dinosaur Jr. has just signed with Bloomington-based label Jagjaguwar, which is part of the amazing Secretly Canadian label family (which happens to be featured in this month’s issue of Billboard Magazine…).
This is awesome news for the label which is already toting some of the biggest names in indie right now such as Bon Iver (who’s new EP Blood Bank has already sold +32,000 since its January 2009 release), Okkervil River, Black Mountain, and Parts & Labor).
So now Dinosaur Jr. is joining the roster and finishing up a new record to be released this summer. If this doesn’t put this label on the map as one to watch, then people are seriously in denial. Secretly Canadian, Jagjaguwar, and Dead Oceans know where it’s at. Period.
