Matador Records has signed Shearwater out of Austin, Texas. The band features two members of Okkervil River (Will Sheff and Jonathan Meiburg) who originally used Shearwater as an outlet for some of their softer music. Matador Records will be releasing a double-disc version of Palo Santo (initially released last year) on April 10th with five re-recorded versions of songs done in December 2006 along with new art and re-mastering. The second disc also comes with Palo Santo demos.
