DRINKS ARE LIVE! FRESH SHOTS FOR "CORNERSHOPS"

posted April 20th, 2018

The more we look it over, the new video fromDrinksconfirms our suspicion that that Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley are two extremely everyday people - it's just the world around them that's insane! Even mundane images of them standing idly about seem to wash through a technicolor prism in this video, mixed with what appear to be home movie-type shots from a tropical vacation. In this context, whether regarding groups of dancing teenagers, bathing adults or penguins milling on a beach, it... (read more)

WILD IS THE WILL

posted April 20th, 2018

During the making of the Wolf of The Cosmos record, Will Oldham was immersed in Susanna's music.  Brian Strumke of Stillwater Artisanal Ales asked Oldham if he was down for another collaboration (the previous one got Bonny and Louisville jammers Watter together for a demonic dirge "The Devil is People").  They started talking Norway, and fortitude, and mysticism; then they retreated to their respective corners to roll up their sleeves and do their own dirty worx.  Oldham found Susanna's original for "Wild is the...

THE DRAG CITY NEWSLETTER! APRIL 2018

A NEW TOMORROW

Turn the page....and here we are. Wake up, it's today! Sure, it's not the way today used to be - that's called science, folks, and it can explain a lot to us, if we only listen (and more crucially, comprehend)! But what are you gonna do - some equations won't make sense no matter how long we study them. So if you feel in the grip of something you don't understand, that may just be the first step into...

WILD KIDS RANT

posted April 19th, 2018

The wild spirit of Faun Fables has returned, raising the young in the light of each new day and playing around the fire to welcome back the spirits at night! Out of the glittering forests of the soul dashes Dawn the Faun, (born of the sun, the earth and air), alongside partner Nils Frykdahl and their brood of wide-eyed youngins. It's a family affair this summer with the band hopping from city to city with kids in tow at dates with Cheer-Accident and Free... (read more)

SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION

posted April 19th, 2018

Six Organs of Admittance is digging a tunnel to the surface and headed towards the light, beaming directly in the deserts of the Southwest! OM is on board for Albuquerque, uncovering visions of ancient royalty in the Advaitic grooves--this mortal plane better be big enough for the both of them! Ben Chasny's acoustic projections of dreamy, hypnotic melodies and psychedelic feedback blend seamlessly with OM's droning, heady rhythms.

With Hexadic accents pulsating in the rearview mirror, 6OA is more experimental than ever, with... (read more)

"WEST PALM BEACH" w/ "GULF SHORES"

The “Palace Brothers” were invited to open the 2nd stage of the Lollapalooza tour for a couple of weeks in the summer of 1994.  At the end of that run a recording session was booked at producer Kramer’s home studio in New Jersey.  The band was Will Oldham, Aram Stith (guitar), Jason Stith (bass) and Jack Carneal (drums) and Ned Oldham (guitar).  The Trux had done their “Back to School” 7” with Kramer, and it...

USURP THE RHYTHM: NO AGE ON TOUR

posted April 13th, 2018

The dymaxion duo of D.Spunt and R.Randall are hauling ass and screeching across county lines to deliver a wildly cathartic cocktail of volume, velocity and melodies later this month! Hitting up and honing in on the Midwest, Canada and the East Coast, No Age are marrying their untouchable noise pop with ear-shattering volume in an immersive live setting. Rifling through the bands discography from past touchstones to the newest rage Snares Like A Haircut, No Age's pell-mell push of punk sanded down on... (read more)

BE LIKE MIKE, WATCH THE VIDEO FOR "COLD SHINE"

posted April 10th, 2018

How to Get Your Record Played In Shops is a new direction in music from Mike Donovan, a busman's holiday from his guitar-based subterranean pop via a serpentine, keyboard-laden path. It makes for fulfilling solo-artist listening; the shards and trickles from his broken music-box are slivers of solitude, echoes of weird scenes and falsetto-hued odes all designed to crack your spirit and seep it into the atmosphere around your ears, while merging with your subconsciousness below. How To Get Your Record Played In Shops... (read more)

WAND WILL BE THE HIGHWAY - TASTE THEIR PERFUMES

posted April 9th, 2018

Today's a great day! And we're sure you know why too - because this day is the closest we've yet been to the release date of Wand's next rec, the 12"EP/CDEP called "Perfume"! It's set for about six weeks from now - May 25th, to be precise - which bodes well for your levels of spring fever, break, cleaning and all the rest of the rebirth rituals in which we'll all soon be engaged in anticipation of the summer breakout.
