SY are certainly looking for a label with some pull, Domino if they are the top contender have some pull, they have been able to get Animal Collective on tv, but Sub Pop and Merge have also had their roster get tv exposure in the last 2 years

and they also want some promotion, Geffen gave maybe at most 3 shits about promoting them in the last 10 years, hence that Thurston line about their last 4 or 5 albums being compromised, they don't want any label meddling (although on the indie level who'd ave the gall to even ask them to do a drum and bass album?) and must reiterate they want promotion and as much as they can get

i always thought the Matador talk was a little offputting, they have been with Cosloy on Homestead, and there was some lingering tension after (mostly on Cosloy's part), so he likes them and would be easier to work with now, not sure if he'd want to go through that again

other then that i am not sure, it'll be a NYC based label for sure though
