A GUSHING STREAM OF BLACK BANANAS

posted June 18th, 2014

Whoa did shit just get real or whut? Seems like just yesterday we were merely teasing n pleasing y'ol with "Physical Emotions" in it's various forms of 7", video, and remix-to-the-max (courtesy of efil4zaggin Liars, what!). But Bananas gotta get peeled when they're ripe, whether there yellow, green, or our favorite, BLACK, and so, less than a week from the release of Electric Brick Wall, the Black Bananas 2nd full full-length,  hongry monkeys with the dial-up get a well-deserved treat: Electric...

JUST LIKE THIS, WHITE FENCE DROP NEW SONG, "LIKE THAT"

posted June 17th, 2014

It's a funny fun world when you've got the means to enjoy it - having security and financial worth, the type which affords cushy accoutrements and play time, big grassy knolls for yards and multiplicative horses and car-bling to boot. For whom does this reality describe? Those living "Like That," naturally, on the other side of your fence, those beyond the view stretching from your tracks. "Like That," the first single from White Fence's soon to be released LP, For... (read more)

THE BISH IS BACK

posted June 13th, 2014

....the Sir Richard Bish, that is. Yeah, he's been around the world just like you know he would, bending strings and expanding tonalities while living in Thailand and Morocco during the past year, following an extended residency in Geneva in the first part of 2013. But no matter where you are, time passes quickly, and this is the first time in four years that Sir Rick's playing in some of these United places. Yeah, there was probably some Rangda-ing going on in... (read more)

TWO BUMS UP - EURO-READY?

posted June 11th, 2014

Hey, "Great" Britain - we know, it's summer. That means endless vacation time, right! So if you are sitting around, wondering what the hell you might do for the next fortnight while you wait for another bank holiday to roll around, why not take it on the bum? Put on your best rags, and hitch your way around with New Bums, as they stake out some highly unlikely territory in the UK, Netherlands, Belgium and Germany throughout June.It all kicks off tonight at London's...

THE MANIPULATOR MAN GETS LOOSE!

posted June 9th, 2014

The news is it out! Ty Segall is on the loose again and going for broke this August with Manipulator,an all-new, all-ROCK double-LP, also available on cassette and compact disc. Multicolored manias abound as our young fuzz-master breaks the dials in search of the ultimate distortion, combing dark and light tones together into the long hair of seventeen songs. Fresh beats abound and savage rock sits heavily next to hip-shakin' sunshine pop as Ty sets the kitchen sink on fire! Yeah - it's... (read more)

LIFE IN THE FLOW LANE

posted June 6th, 2014

Bitchin Bajas have been around the world in five years; chasing sonics through space and time, recklessly consuming processes in order to realize their own works and coming up with a diverse lot of conclusions along their path to their singular goal - the shared experience of aural epiphany, the total peace of true unknowing. That's all fine, but in August, the all-new NEXT Bitchin Bajas album after 2013's  trance-tronic Bitchitronics LP/CS will employ four LP sides to attain a 76-minute sequence of PERFECT FLOW,...

WHITE FENCE ACROSS AMERICA!

posted June 5th, 2014

Summertime - and the music's - well, let's not say free and easy, since that may send the wrong message to the marketplace. How then, to describe with mere words the next-level new efforts that break ceilings of glass and walls of forth in their attempt to do that what's never been done and win that what's never been won? Yeah! That's what WE'VE got going on in July. What about you - going to see a man about a bridge? FINE. We'll go you... (read more)

LIARS GET PHYSICAL, GO BANANAS!

posted June 4th, 2014

As we approach the great white release date for Electric Brick Wall, Black Bananas fans everywhere are geeked and tweaked with the idea of a whole album that sounds like the slay-worthy advance single, "Physical Emotions."  Fuckin' dream on! It's not that nobody could realize an album like that - if anybody could, it would definitely be Jennifer and the band-anas - but they've got better things to do, like making Electric Brick Wall so high and mighty! If you're so into "Physical Emotions,"... (read more)

HEX WATCH, FOOLS!

posted May 30th, 2014

For you loyal readers out there in the e-aether (and, please God, listeners in the real world), you've already heard peep one 'bout this ultra-limited & damn-near hand-crafted platter that we very mysteriously call "Fool's Watch," b/w "Lord Gloves" (because mysteriously, those are the song titles). The basic spex: 2 SONG, 10", 45 RPM. Neil Michael Hagerty & The Howling Hex brought forth these two mini-epics from somewhere deep inside their hard-won collective identity; The Howling Hex with their trusty, rust-freeNew Border Sound...

PRIMO EUROPEAN ACTION! DRAG CITY ON FEST-QUEST

posted May 29th, 2014

Oceans, borders, guards, security check points, poison darts, voodoo - nothing can stop the foot soldiers of Drag City from breaking on through the Fourth Dimension with gifts and wisdom for the civilized people of this world we regard so curiously yet value! You can get these items here, by staying tuned into our ever-evolving (yet reassuringly basic) web presence; cool, cool - but nothing tops the essential rock n' roll - not to mention, human - experience, that of reaching out and fucking...
