"It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our good friend Jay Reatard. Jay died in his sleep last night. We will pass along information about funeral arrangements when they are made public."
Over the years, Reatard released material through Goner, In The Red Records and multiple other labels. His final album, 2009's Watch Me Fall, was released by Matador Records.
Our deepest condolences go out to Reatard's family, friends and fans.
