Congratulations go out to Nurses, who have recently signed on the dotted line with well-respected indie label Dead Oceans. The second local act on the Austin label (White Hinterland being the other) will see the official release of their Apple’s Acre LP (which I believe they started recording in late 2007) on the 4th of August.
It seems like it was only yesterday that our Andrew Tonry was writing about the band's arrival in town, but as it turns out, that was a little more than a year ago. Since they rolled into town, Nurses have done an excellent job of carving their special niche in the local scene, and relying heavily on some of the most flattering word-of-mouth praise I have ever heard.
