Dead Oceans is an independent record label based jointly in Bloomington, Indiana and Austin, Texas. After nearly a decade managing Misra Records, Phil Waldorf jumped ship to form Dead Oceans in 2007. Run side by side with sister labels Secretly Canadian and Jagjaguwar, Dead Oceans is co-owned by the partners behind Secretly Canadian and Jagjaguwar (Ben Swanson, Chris Swanson, Darius Van Arman, Jonathan Cargill) with Phil Waldorf. Dead Oceans shares the Bloomington, Indiana work staff of its sister labels, but Waldorf acts as its A&R from his current location in Austin, Texas.
