EPIC JAMMERS WILL TRAVEL

posted August 26th, 2016

With the release of Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties, Bitchin Bajas and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy lead an analogous path to righteousness and truth with emancipated jams of blissed intuition. All those moments of tranquility and trance - an albums-worth of uniquely lucid, flowing sound ideas - truly reveal themselves when exposited via live performance, as band and audience coalesce into something universal!

And so we beam with pleasure to announce that the Bonnie Bajas live experience touring the Midwest along the... (read more)

PLEASED TO AMOEKONS, MEET "OBLIVION"

posted August 24th, 2016

Forget 'one if by land, two if by sea', Chivalrous Amoekons are coming, by any means possible! The product of long held and tall-grown wood for the creative expression of the once and future Mekons, Fanatic Voyage is an album of skin-crawling engagement with song and projection, rock and roll and revolution. Chivalrous Amoekons are comprised of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Ben Boye, Van Campbell, Emmett Kelly, Danny Kiley and Angel Olsen; their passionate collaboration makes the ten-song Voyage a...

DEATH COMES TO THE SMITHSONIAN AT LAST!

posted August 22nd, 2016

What's harder to accept - that three African-American brothers in mid-70s Detroit channeled proto-punk music in total obscurity and weren't TRULY heard doing so for over thirty years - or that it's been over seven years since we all finally got it with the release of For the Whole World to See? Both spans of time seem interminable, and yet, the freshness of Death's music has sustained them through the years of touring since then, supplemented by two additional archival releases and last year's...

ACROSS THE US-IVERSE: THE VINYL CONFLICT!

posted August 19th, 2016

You heard it here early and often kids, - history's a stone-cold bitch what will stab you in a mini-second and leave you bleeding into the swiftly retreating past. But blood works best when its paid forward! That's why we like to reach into the fridge and pull out a nice, vintage pint of somethin' homegrown that nobody's seen or heard for awhile - like all the best children, that's what the world needs now! Matter of fact, we've been rollin' 'em out all summer... (read more)

UNBORN AGAIN?

posted August 18th, 2016

Drag City, Inc. is pleased to announce the solo debut full length from Wand's Cory Hanson. The album was recorded during May of 2016 in various locations across Los Angeles County, and features prodigious string arrangements by Heather Lockie.

The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo is a secret that didn't need to be kept-conceived and was executed over many months. Hanson's lyrics here are his best to date. By turns naked, leering, playful, evasive, they present a mute, parading statuary-doughy figures waltzing in doomed... (read more)

PULL TIGHT THE "LONG BOW" WITH THE RECENTLY FOUND TIM PRESLEY!

posted August 16th, 2016

Yesss....Tim Presley! Say the name and know that lit up within the shades and drapes of his many musical outfits are the sparks that make Tim's songs glisten and gleam - but September 16th's forthcoming The WiNK lives beyond all previous incarnations found in White Fence, Drinks, Hair and Darker My Love. Now there are fewer filters than ever between you and Tim. Thus, his name above the credits; a wink before diving into the complexities and delights of new-century long... (read more)

AMBROGIOS BEFORE AMBROGIHOES!

posted August 12th, 2016

Amherst's very own magik magnetic underground wunderkind, Elisa Ambrogio, is busting out of a period of silence for a short run with buddies (and fellow west Massers) Dinosaur Jr. next month! Yus, Elisa's well acquainted with the prehistoric behemoths of indie rock shreddery; in fact, Magik Markers recorded Surrender to the Fantasy in J. Mascis' Massachusetts attic just a few years back. This is her first time supporting the band in a solo fashion, and the shows are all in deep southern states,... (read more)

PRATT ON!

posted August 11th, 2016

Is it just us or is 2016 a snooze thus far? Where are the It Girls of yesterday? Like what's our diminutive thrush, Jessica Pratt, got up to these days? As far as well can tell, it's been a time of one-off performances followed by what we can only guess are blissful retreats from the known map! Happily, the Pratt thing seems to be heating up again just in time for the leaves to fall from the trees as we all find ourselves on... (read more)
